Close but no cigar! Tucson Festival of Books

Here’s a quote from an e-mail I received from the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards.

“Congratulations on being chosen as a semi-finalist in the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards competition. We received over 550 submissions, and the competition was tough. Though not one of the three cash awards winners, your work was at the top of the semi-finalists list in the nonfiction category.”

The entry, a personal essay, is based on my book, The Week from Heaven and Hell, which is available in paperback and e-book on Amazon and other major outlets. So, as my wife reminds me, I must just keep writing and perhaps one day will reach the winners circle! As they say, better luck next time!
