Sarton Women’s Book Awards Update

Love, Bill came in second in the Biography/Memoir category of the 2017 Sarton Women’s Book Awards. The organizers wrote: “This year’s competition attracted an exceptionally strong field of entries. Each entry gave us a different glimpse into women’s lives and offered a strong and unique woman’s voice. Every author deserves to be honored for her willingness to risk sharing her work.”

Each honor I have received up to this point has been an exciting validation of the book . I have been very humbled and encouraged. Who knows where this all goes next?!

Love, Bill

 

Sarton Women’s Book Award Finalist

Yeah! Love, Bill is a finalist in the Nonfiction category for the Sarton Women’s Book Award. The award is sponsored by Story Circle Network, an international non-profit community of women writers. The award is named in honor of May Sarton, a memoirist, novelist, and poet, and given annually to women authors writing chiefly about women and published in the United States and Canada. The winners will be announced in April. Apparently, this year’s competition was “the largest and strongest” in the history of the award. Fingers crossed!
