Crocodile Love Wins Another Award: “Shelf Unbound Notable 100 Winner”!

I’m happy to announce that my narrative travel book, Crocodile Love: Travel Tales from an Extended Honeymoon, was named a “Notable 100 Book in the Shelf Unbound Best Indie Book Competition.”  Shelf Unbound indie book review magazine “features the best of small press and self-published books. Each issue reaches 125,000 avid readers in more than 70 countries.” (The overall winner of the contest, by the way, was Ronna Wineberg, for her book, On Bittersweet Place.)

The good news comes only months after CROCODILE LOVE was named Winner for the Best Travel Book for 2016″ in this year’s Peace Corps Writer Awards, officially making me an award-winning author. I like the sound of that.
