I am thrilled to report that Where We Belong has received multiple honors in the 2013 Rainbow Awards.
It won a Rainbow Award in its category, Lesbian Contemporary General Fiction. That was exciting enough. But then it went on to win Best Lesbian Novel, which is a kind of "best in show" award, a winner among all the category winners.
That's a huge honor, and I'm grateful to Elisa and the many judges who worked so hard, and as volunteers, to make these awards great.
Another thing that makes these awards great: This year they raised, and delivered, almost 6,500 dollars for two LGBT charities, Ali Forney Center in New York City and Colors in Los Angeles.
Here's my certificate, of which I am most proud:
And an extra thanks to all my readers and fans who have been behind this book all along. Not sure what I would do without all of you. May I never find out!
