“Please Write” a Chanticleer Book Award Short-Lister

Making it to the Short List means that the judges saw something they liked in our books. From this point on, the competition gets a bit tougher. Book awards are a wonderful way to get feedback on the books we all worked so hard on. I want to wish all the other short-listed authors luck as we move closer to the judges’ final selections.
