Reader’s Choice Award Finalists

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for Steel Victory in the 2015 RDSP Reader’s Choice Award poll!


As you can see, this super snazzy belt and bragging rights for the next year are on the line! Congratulations to my fellow finalists:

Now my fate is in the hands of two judges who will read all four books and announce the winner at the 2016 DogCon retreat at Broadkill Resort in October.

This is the third year for this contest, and the twist is that I am up against both of the previous winners!


They seem to think that this means the coveted title is in the bag for one of them. However…


Because magic black goop and pretty bird people are no match for cold, hard STEEL.
