Caught Inside is a Finalist in the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Awards!

What a surreal day this is turning out to be! For the past several years, I’ve been an avid follower of the Lambda Literary Awards, awaiting the announcement, first of the finalists and then of the winners, with mounting excitement. I’ve taken enormous pleasure in cheering on the books I’ve read and loved, and of course in discovering new favourites. The Lammys have celebrated among its winners and finalists such talented authors as Benjamin Alire Saenz, J.H. Trumble,
and Jay Bell, to name just a few. Never did I imagine I would one day be able to count myself among them…until today.

I heard this morning that my debut novel Caught Inside has been named as a finalist in the 29th Annual Lambda Literary Awards
for Best Gay Romance, and I haven’t been able to stop grinning! This truly is a dream come true for me. I couldn’t be more honoured or thrilled to be nominated alongside such amazing authors as Garrett Leigh, Lisa Henry, Marshall Thornton, L.A. Witt,
and so many more. I can’t say a big enough thank you to everyone who helped make this possible, not least Debbie McGowan, my wonderful editor and publisher at Beaten Track, and I wish my fellow finalists all the luck in the world.
