My YA novel Bereft won another award!

Last evening, I got some good news. Bereft, my YA novel about bullying, won a Silver Independent Book Publisher Award (IPPY). This is in addition to the Bronze Moonbeam Award. This is truly the Little Book That Could.

Below is a video review of Bereft I found a while ago on YouTube. (Thanks to the reviewer!)
Thanks to my publisher (Tiny Satchel Press) and everyone who read the book!
