I'm headed to the Whitney Awards!

Updated: May 8, 2023

Blue Shadows Fall is a FINALIST for the 16th Annual Whitney Awards! What does that mean? A lot of good, good stuff. I'm headed to Utah for the weekend to attend the "Disneyland of writer's conferences"--Storymakers--then Friday night, I get to go to a ball!!--the uber fancy Whitney Award Gala where the winners will be announced!

What is the Whitney Award all about?

So glad you asked! It's an award program to celebrate the best novels written by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Months ago, BLUE SHADOWS FALL was nominated by readers. Then it was chosen as one of only five finalists in the Young Adult Speculative category! (among such incredible company as Brandon Sanderson, himself!) I already feel like a winner!

Not only is my book nominated for an award in the YA Speculative category, but it is also nominated as a best debut novel.

Friday night I get to get all dressed up and go to a Gala celebrating all of the other authors who are finalists. It's truly a dream come true!

I will be updating my instagram stories with all the fun, so please head on over and check it out!
