Just a short note here this morning to share that my third essay collection, "Fabulous in Flats," made the list of finalists in ForeWord Reviews' annual Book of the Year Awards!  This book is doing pretty well (crossing my fingers here that my luck holds), it was named "Published Book of the Year" a few months ago by the Florida Writers Association, and was a finalist in the Chicago Writers Association's contest too. 

You can check out part of the first chapter and the back-cover comments from some wonderful authors who very kindly "blurbed" the book for me, at the iUniverse page, http://bookstore.iuniverse.com/Products/SKU-000470528/Fabulous-in-Flats.aspx

I would love to hear about other authors' experiences with self-publishing, which is how I've published all three of my books. I have REALLY enjoyed many facets of the experience, though it's been a journey of learning-by-doing every step of the way. I started with "Running with Stilettos" in 2008, forged ahead with "Heck on Heels" (which also made the ForeWord list of finalists back in 2010), and changed shoe styles with Fabulous in Flats.  All are slice-of-life essays, which can be a hard sell for agents and traditional publishers.  But oh, the fun I've had!
