On August 5, 2017, the Annual 2017 Florida Authors and Publishers Association President's Book Awards recognized Inland by Stacey Horan, in the category of Young Adult Fiction (Paranormal/Sci-Fi/Fantasy), as a Silver medal winner.
It was a wonderful ceremony. Thank you to the FAPA Board for making it so memorable.
The Florida Authors and Publishers Association has announced their 2017 Medalists for Fiction: Young Adult Paranormal/Sci-Fi/Fantasy -- and Inland has been chosen! I'm excited and honored to have my book chosen as a medalist in this category.
I am very excited to announce that the first book in my new series is now available -- The Elixir Vitae Adventures: ORTUS.
This is Book One of a new middle-grade adventure series involving mysteries, riddles, travel, family secrets...and a bit of magic. It is available in paperback and ebook from Amazon.
Pick up a copy today. I hope you enjoy it -- and I wish you many happy adventures!
I am thrilled and honored that my short story, The Bench at the End of the Dock, was selected by Jacksonville Magazine as the winner of their 2016 Fiction Writing Contest. Go buy a copy of their October 2016 issue! It’s on newsstands now. (This issue was a bit delayed making it to the shops – no thanks to Hurricane Matthew, I’m sure.) You’ll find my short story on page 90.
I confess that I almost didn’t enter the contest. With only a few weeks until the deadline, I decided to write this story and submit it. It was an exhausting and emotional exercise to get this story out of my head and onto the page, but I’m very pleased with the result. Jacksonville Magazine did a lovely job with the layout, and it is so exciting to see my name in print as the story’s author. I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story, and I think they will stay with me for a long time. I’m really pleased that JAX Mag readers get a chance to meet Guy Babbitt and Annaleigh, too, and learn just a small part of their sweet story.
Thank you, Jacksonville Magazine, for choosing my short story. It is a wonderful honor.
