Putting Myself Out There – Part 2

I got the news today: A Square Foot of Calfskin has made it to Round 2 of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. It’s no longer one of ten thousand–now it’s one of two thousand, among the four hundred books left in the YA category.

The next round of judging ends on the 14th of April. After that, if Jonah’s story makes it to the quarterfinals, you’ll have a chance to read and review an excerpt and participate in the selections for the semifinals.

In the mean time–if you’re interested, or there’s a kid you like who’s into the Civil War, please feel free to follow the link above and buy the book!

I've been a soldier, a dreamer, a working stiff, a leader. A husband, father, example (good and otherwise), and now a survivor. I write about courage, because courage is what enables us to accomplish the impossible. If you draw breath, I love you. If you love in whatever way seems best to you and want others to love in whatever way seems best to them, I am your ally. If you believe someone is less than you because they do not love the way you do, I oppose you. If you see someone as a threat to be abused or destroyed merely because they do not look like you, or love like you, or worship like you, I am your enemy. I am a joyful and courageous man. And I stand with you who love.
