The Wait

Right now it’s currently 1:01 am and I’m lying in bed tossing and turning. No it’s not because of the amazing episode of Game of Thrones I just watched, but the impeding announcement of the winner for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize. Operation Wildcat was nominated back in April for this amazing award and now the day I’ve been waiting for has almost arrived… And I’m anxious.

I’m up against some amazing fellow Canadian authors and my book is also being read by the amazing Lynsay Sands, so I’m finding it rather hard to keep from obsessing over the outcome. Who wouldn’t though. $10,000 and help with promotions, marketing, and communication from Kobo is an amazing prize for an up and coming self published author. It’s not easy or cheap to self publish but from what I seen so far it’s definitely been an amazing experience.

So fingers crossed that around 5 pm (Alberta time) June 21st I will receive an email from Kobo congratulating me, but if it doesn’t happen I can honestly say it’s just an honor to be nominated. So on that note I’m going to sign off and tuck in. Have an amazing night and wish me luck!
