When I learned that the audiobook version of Sister of Mine had been nominated for the award that the Audio Publishers Association likes to call its "Oscar," I was pleasantly surprised. Yesterday, when my book was shortlisted in the Fiction category, I was stunned and delighted
in equal measure.
Winners will be announced in June, but as with the Oscar, getting onto the short list is an honor in itself. I'm in very distinguished company--Stephen King and Julian Fellowes, among others, are fiction short-listers as well. Thanks and congratulations are in order to the talented Bahni Turpin, who brought the book to life as the narrator.
