Now I Know Why

by Marsha Ward

All day I've been sitting here feeling a little bit guilty because I did not write and schedule a post for today. I tried to tell myself that it's because my eyes are still recovering from cataract surgery, but they are getting better every day, so that didn't stand up to scrutiny.

Now I know why I didn't write a post. Today held surprises for me.

It is a day that has been quite outstanding in terms of my writing career.

First of all, I was invited to contribute a novella to a popular anthology series. That was way cool.

Then I came across an announcement in my email that my last novel, Spinster's Folly, won the Western Fiction category of the 2013 USA Best Books Awards competition!


I told myself this would be a kick-back-and-relax kind of a day, but now I'm so excited that the blood is pumping and I have to get up and do something. See you later!


  1. How much better the news on a day you thought would be so so. Congrats.
