Two days, two important award nominations

I'm in literary heaven. Yesterday I was honored to receive an Edmund White Debut Fiction Award nomination from The Publishing Triangle. This morning, the Lambda Literary Awards were announced and Jazz Moon is a finalist for Best Gay Fiction alongside such prestigious writers as Garth Greenwell and Darryl Pinckney. So excited. So honored. So excited.
