Christy Awards!

Hi Friends,

The Christy Award nominees were just announced and guess what - BEYOND THE NIGHT is one of the finalists! Cool, huh? (For those of you who have no idea what the Christy's are, think 'Academy Awards of Christian Fiction'.)

Anyway, below is the full list. A number of my good friends had books nominated too, and you'll notice a number of titles from books I've showcased here on my blog in the last year too. Winners in each category will be announced at the big International Christian Retailing Show convention in July.
