Weekend Book Buzz – 10/11 November 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! Forgive the tardiness of this week’s edition, but there was a thirteenth birthday in our house this week, and it’s taken up a lot of my time and energy.

First of all, congratulations to the Christy Award™ winners:

Contemporary Romance:  True to You by Becky Wade
First Novel:  Missing Isaac by Valerie Fraser Luesse
General Fiction:  Life After by Katie Ganshert
Historical Fiction:  Isaiah’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews
Historical Romance:  The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz
Suspense/Mystery/Thriller: The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright
Short Form:  12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep
Visionary:  The Man He Never Was by James L. Rubart
Young Adult:  The Delusion by Laura Gallier

And BIG congratulations to Becky Wade, whose book True to You not only won the contemporary romance category but was named Book of the Year!

If you didn’t get to watch the awards night live, I would encourage you to at least watch the keynote address given by author Charles Martin. So inspiring! The link should take you to the introduction to his address, but if not, you want to go to around 29 minutes into the live stream.

And now, the Weekend Book Buzz!
