Just found out that Angel Sometimes won the 2013 USA Best Book Award for Fiction: New Age. Stunned and very excited.
Here's the cover blurb for Angel Sometimes:
Just before her thirteenth birthday, Angel's aunt took
her 800 miles from her home in Oklahoma, gave her $50 and left her on South
Padre Island, Texas. Four years later, Angel hitchhiked to Austin and got a job
swimming as a mermaid in a bar in the music district. At twenty-two, she has
friends and a place to live, but she realizes she will never be whole until she
confronts her parents. To do that, she needs three things: a car, her high
school diploma, and a gun. And she knows where to get one.
Thanks to all of you who have read Angel Sometimes and to those who have given it great reviews. I love you all.
