Well, my little book is taking me on quite an exciting journey. It has won its 13th award - a silver from Readers Favorite Awards (Animals)! . It has also received 5-Star reviews from Readers Favorite!
And it was named a Finalist in two more categories: Humor and General Non-Fiction. However, books that are named a Finalist in multiple categories, can only win in one category - the one in which it scored the highest. Now ... comes the hard part ... getting it out there!!!
