Featured_Author_Lawson_ReinschI’m happy and humbled to say that I’m the featured author on WritingAndWellness.com this week.

I’ll keep this post short because the article there is quite long. But don’t just read about me. Colleen M. Story’s great site is packed with useful advice and techniques for artists to stay healthy and productive.

Check it out.

I hate to brag. Seriously. But I guess it’s fair to let you know that my work has recently been recognized as not awful by people who are 1) not me, and 2) qualified to make that call.

My psychological thriller Uncle Kenny’s Other Secret Agenda was just named a Finalist for the Nancy Pearl Book Award. I’m pretty excited about this one. Nancy Pearl is a rock star librarian. (Yes, there are rock star librarians.) You may have heard her reviewing books on NPR’s Morning Edition, or read one of her bestselling books about—you guessed it—books. The winner will be announced at the Pacific Northwest WriWD_SPeBook_Awardsters Association conference on 7/30. Fingers crossed, but I’m already super happy about being a Finalist.

And this May my thriller PowerHouse won First Place in the Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards in the genre
category. The odd thing is that WD lumps all the genres together, so I was up against everything in Romance, Historical, SciFi, Horror, Humor, Humorous Horror, basically anything that wasn’t Literary/Mainstream. So that feels extra good.

To celebrate these acknowledgments, the Kindle versions of both books are marked down to ninety-nine cents through the end of September. Links above will get you to the paperback versions. Enjoy!
