Séance in Sepia has been enjoying a busy and gratifying fall. In October, the book was honored at a finalists’ luncheon for the 2012 WILLA Literary Award.

The luncheon took place during the annual conference of Women Writing the West, an organization that I have been a member of since its very early days in the 1990's. I served on the group's board of directors for several years, helping with marketing and one year editing the newsletter.

Receiving an honor from this group was very touching to me, recalling all those early years of service and struggle. Now the group has matured and grown, but the writers all have that same spark of enthusiasm and love for the American West.

The second lovely honor my book received was a nod from Colorado Country Life Magazine in their annual roundup of Best Books For 2012. You can access the article online here.

If you would like to read the first two chapters, there is a link to the excerpt on the tab at the top of this blog under the banner.

Good luck!
