It was so exciting to be in Denver, in person, for the 24th Annual CIPA EVVY Awards. Thankfully, my husband was with me for moral support. He had never been to Denver, so we took advantage and did some sight-seeing.  At the banquet, we sat at the Outskirts Press table, which made us feel special, and we were able to meet some of the amazing folks at Outskirts who helped make my book possible!

I am truly grateful, honored, humbled, and so very appreciative for Outskirts Press, the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation (ELF), and everyone who had any part in the awards and banquet.

None of this would be possible without the 16 women who allowed me to share their stories with the universe.  I must also thank my husband who kept me fed while I worked on my book, my writing coach who kept me motivated, and my editor who made me a much better writer.
