"Valley of the Shadow" is one of the finalists for a 2010 Christy Award in the Visionary category. This very exciting and a great honor as "Vanish" won a Christy last year. The two other finalists in this category are Karen Hancock for "The Enclave" and Jill Williamson for "By Darkness Hid".
Best wishes to Karen and Jill. Here's looking forward to the June 26th ceremony in St. Louis
