"A Year in Ink, Vol. 4" Wins Best Anthology/Collection at San Diego Book Awards

My short story, "Ploughman," is one of the many excellent short stories in this book.

It's an excellent feeling to be part of an award-winning anthology. That's about all I have to say about that. Winners listed here.

"A Year in Ink, Vol. 4" Nominated for San Diego Book Award

Last year, the good folks at San Diego Writers, Ink. published its annual anthology, A Year in Ink, Vol. 4. I had submitted a piece and was delighted that it was accepted.

I just found out that a couple weeks ago, the San Diego Book Awards Association nominated Year in Ink for a 2012 award: Published Anthology/Short Story Collection.

If I seem ridiculously pleased, it's because one of my short stories is in an award-nominated anthology - and the award is being given by a serious literary association.

You can bet me a buck that's going in my new submission cover letters. Hopefully I'll have to change that to "award-winning."
