Hi! At last the wait is over and here's some news I hope you will celebrate with me: (partial from a press release my publisher is putting out)
Longtime Colorado resident and member of the Steamboat Springs Writers Group Kathleen Guler has won the Colorado Book Award in historical fiction for her novel, A Land Beyond Ravens
. Guler accepted the award in Aspen on Friday.
Reviews have hailed the book as “one of the most historically realistic Arthurian novels ever written, a thoroughly mature work...” The book tells the story of a spy and master of disguise in fifth century British who, while being squeezed between the politics of two powerful kings, accidentally sparks off what becomes the quest for the holy grail.
“Twenty years ago today, I adopted Colorado as my home, and now I feel like Colorado has adopted me back,” Guler said in her acceptance speech. She then read a brief passage from her book.
The prestigious Colorado Book Award is sponsored by Colorado Humanities’ Center for the Book, established as the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. ###
Woo-hoo!!!! This is the kind of thing I used to just dream about decades ago!
