SpaSpa stands for Self-Published and Small Press Awards. I finally managed to get a signal strong enough to access the BookHippo website where the voting had taken place.
My first book, Ravenfold, was winner in the Historical Fiction category. My second, Message in a Bottle, won in the Contemporary Fiction genre. Message also won the Best Novella award. I was feeling a bit giddy by then, and almost missed the fact that one of my drabbles was runner-up.
I must begin by congratulating all the other winners and runners-up. The final vote is cast by readers and we'd all be wasting out time without them. Thank you if you read them or voted for them.
I need to thank the administrator of BookHippo who does all the behind-the-scenes work for these awards, and all the unseen helpers who check categories and eligibility. Thank you, too, to my publisher and fellow award-winner, Jonathan Hill - Hilltop Press had an excellent year in 2014. Here's to 2015 and the pressure's on to publish another book each!
