Somewhere Between Shock and Dancing . . .

So guess what.

Veiled Rose is a finalist for the 2012 Christy Award!

"All right," you say, "the dancing then we get. But why the shock, Anne Elisabeth?"

Because this, my friends, was the book that should never have been written.

See what wonders God has done for this self-conscious/ snobby/insecure/foolish/thrilled little writer-person. It truly is amazing!

Congratulations to all the fabulous writers also nominated for this award. And love to all of you, my supportive readers and friends!

That is so awesome, Anne!! It's wonderful to see God at work for His glory through us and sometimes seemingly in spite of us. :) I loved Veiled Rose, and I'm thrilled to see it as one of the Christy nominees! I have Moonblood waiting on my desk - it will probably be part of my celebration time after graduation, which is only less than 3 weeks away!
