I just received this email (May 14, 2008):

I am writing to let you know that we are now notifying all Finalists and category Winners for the 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

I am delighted to give you the good news that your book has been named a Finalist in the Entertainment category of the 2008 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Congratulations!

WOW! My little book is a finalist for the INDIE BOOK AWARD!!!! I can’t believe it!

I won’t know until the end of the month what my competition is, but who cares?

DEALING WITH DIVAS will be on the www.indiebookawards.com web site for the rest of 2008 whether I win the top prize or not.

AWESOME!
