Alpha Trine News!

This is a day late going up on the blog. I had the winner's announcement for the Twin Flames blog tour yesterday and didn't want to overshadow the winners with other news I had received.

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter or even Google+ you might have already seen the announcements of the finalists for the 2014 Rainbow Awards. Alpha Trine (The Valespian Pact, 1) is one of the finalist.

There were 525 submissions and $11,500 dollars raised for various charities. Of the submissions, 284 titles are being read by 172 judges right now to meet the December 8, 2014 deadline.

There are so many great books being evaluated and I'm humbled to be numbered among such talent. I'm felling a little out of my league but it's all good. Alpha Trine made the finals and that... I'm not really sure what to say. I struggle enough with how to respond to compliments that finding the proper words to express my gratitude eludes me sometimes. I simply wanted to write stories and share them. That's all. All of this *waves hand around dramatically* Is so overwhelming.

The category Alpha Trine is in:

Bisexual General Fiction
Alpha Trine by Lexi Ander
Best Bi Short Stories by Sheela Lambert
Cythera by Jo Graham
The River Within by Baxter Clare Trautman
The Stars Change by Mary Anne Mohanraj

Something else to note, Alpha Trine's cover made it to the 3rd round of the cover contest. Aisha Akeju is the cover artist and she is amazing. She also put together Striker's cover, which I adore. The other covers by Aisha that made the cover finals are:

176 - Falling for Forever (Aisha Akeju)
336 - Ink & Flowers (Aisha Akeju)
342 - Ice (Aisha Akeju)

Other fantastic artists from Less Than Three Press who also made the 3rd round are:

63 - Goblins (Ria Chantler)
19 - The Engineered Throne (Megan Derr)
17 - The Memory of Blood & Lotuses (London Burden)
337 - The Merman and the Barbarian Pirate (Julie Wright)

Make sure you vote for at least 3 of your favorites before October 18th!

And finally, in case you missed the brief blog post, Alpha Trine made the 2014 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention list. Click Here to view full article.

"Honestly this is one of the best books I've read this year. It is a rich, full world with rich, full characters. I couldn't have asked for a better sci-fi book. Sci-fi is one of the hardest (in my opinion) genres to write in, and it's rare (for me) that a story captures my interest so thoroughly."

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!
