I am thrilled to announce that Driven: A Rita Mars Thriller is a finalist in the CIPA EVVY Book Awards. I don’t know yet what award I’ve won. I’ll find out on August 29 at the awards banquet whether Driven has won a 1st, 2nd, 3rd or Merit Award.

I am honored to have been selected by this prestigious organization that has, for 30 years, dedicated its efforts to writers’ achieving success. And so importantly, I thank my readers who continue to buy my work and to compliment my efforts.

The CIPA EVVY Book Awards is connected to the Colorado Independent Publishers Association. The competition is open to any independently or self-published print or audio book.
