Hello everyone! For those who follow me on social media - which you should be doing if you don’t already 😊 – you already know that I was not successful in bringing home the ‘Best Thriller’ award. I recognize that it is a cliché thing to say, but it truly was an honour just to be nominated. I was incredibly grateful to see that my book had survived three rounds of preliminary voting and judging until it was placed in the final ballot.
It was unbelievable to see my readers, friends and family continuously vote for the book and support me as I travelled to Columbus, Ohio for the award show. It was the first award show I have ever attended (but hopefully not my last) and I was able to engage in incredibly meaningful conversation with the other authors nominated for awards. There were truly some amazing books that were presented at the award show that were definitely added to my Goodreads ‘want to read’ list.
Overall, it was an amazing experience and I hope that I can return to the awards show in the future and hopefully take home the award this time!
