That was a nice surprise, five years ago, to get a Silver Medal in the Global E-Book Awards for The Cellar Beneath the Cellar, which is Book No. 2 of my Bell Mountain series.
Sorry, didn’t know what I ought to re-run today. For 15 minutes this morning, maybe a little more, our neighborhood was immersed in a noise such as would be made by the galaxy’s most powerful car horn with a dead body leaning on it. Couldn’t hear yourself think! It has only just stopped.
I love Kirk DouPonce’s cover for Cellar. You can’t tell me Ellayne isn’t real! How else could Kirk have painted her exact likeness?
Oh! Merry Christmas, everybody!
Nice medal, isn’t it?
I had just won a Global E-Book Award for my second Bell Mountain book, The Cellar Beneath the Cellar. A lefty loon on a major leftid website attacked me by name–and my sales went up.
Try as I might, I can’t remember who it was that attacked me. I think it might’ve been someone on the Huffington Post, but I could easily be wrong. I don’t read any of those sites.
I still haven’t figured out why they would even bother to smack me down. I guess it’s because even the microscopic, inconsequential opposition I provide is poison to them.
Just now my sales figures are about as low as they’ve ever been. Why does Far Left Crazy care what any of us says?
It’s as if one stray mote of freedom mars their entire landscape.
There it is–the silver medal.
It’s nice to get some recognition, now and then. In 2014 The Cellar Beneath the Cellar, Book No. 2 of my Bell Mountain series, won a silver medal in the Global E-Book Awards.
The year before, Bell Mountain itself won a bronze.
See? Official and bona fide proof that my books are worth your time! I’m sure these awards aren’t like the Oscars, where they sometimes give Best Picture to the worst picture. If you haven’t read ’em yet… well, c’mon!
