Just thinking…

Breakout Author of the Year!

Hi all, I have some exciting news! But first – what a fun weekend! I attended the second annual B.R.A.B (Building Relationships Around Books) Readers Retreat and had a blast! B.R.A.B is an online (Facebook) book club with over a thousand readers (and authors) and it’s the place where I have found some great books by new (new to me) authors.

Though I attended the retreat (held in Georgia) as a reader – so that I could support some of my author friends and meet some of my favorite authors – I had the pleasure of meeting some of MY fans! How cool is that!? I thought the event was very well thought out and though it was for the readers, I think authors really enjoyed themselves as well. I know I did!

Okay, so now for my exciting news – I, Sharon C. Cooper, was one of six authors nominated for B.R.A.B’s Reading Warrior Breakout Author of the Year Award! Woo hoo! I’m so excited, surprised and truly honored to be a nominee!! Each year, the members in the book club vote for their favorite authors/books in various categories. This year they have opened voting up to people outside of the group (nonmembers).
