  16. I know a good read when I read one and it’s good to know that those who award prizes for good writing are on to you. You cannot hide, you have been exposed. Love and the best for you, Barb

  17. Congratulations again, Norma. As I said in my email it’s well-deserved. The only sad part is the name of the group making the award. Wouldn’t it be nice if ALL publishers were independent?
