I just found out that my book, Never More There, has been shortlisted for the Heritage and History Award, sponsored by the Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s great news indeed and I look forward to the readings and announcement of the winner at the Ship Inn on January 3rd, presented by the Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador.
You can find the other shortlisted authors on the official announcement page. It’s good to see a variety of experience levels in the four finalists, one of whom, Calvin Hollett, happens to be a substitute teacher at my school, who attended the launch of my book, as I did his. This makes for an early Christmas gift that’s certainly appreciated and I now eagerly await January.
