I'm a Winner!

Well, it seems these book reviews I'm doing for my blog are paying off. I just got the official word that I won the book review contest sponsored by the Ft. Bend Writer's Guild. Yee-haw! The winning essay was the one I wrote about The Dawn Patrol by Don Winslow. You can read it here. This marks the first time in my career that I've won for non-fiction. I don't intend for it to be the last.

Thanks to everyone who visits my blog and reads my reviews. Without y'all, this blog and these reviews and the discussions generated would be a bunch of soliloquies. I prefer dialogue.

You do deserve it. I expect to see you reviewing regularly for an august publications soon.
I just read Dawn Patrol too. But one caveat to a great book was there was too much action for my tastes. It sometimes seemed more like a screenplay than a novel. But I'd still recommend it highly.
