The Pluto Award



I'm very excited and honored to announce that A Lever Long Enough yesterday won the 2009 Pluto Award! This is a recognition from the e-zine Yellow30 Sci-Fi. The Pluto is so named because it attempts to recognize the humbler books that are nevertheless great reads.

The news release is HERE

I was nominated for the award last month before I even knew it, and then one of the editors emailed me to let me know. The two other finalists were Grace Bridges' Faith Awakened about a virus-created dystopia and a unique solution to escape, and Sue Dent's Never Ceese about a cursed vampire and cursed werewolf who long to be whole, both also worthy books.

I don't know what else to say, except I'm grateful and humbled by this award. I pray that it reflects the Lord's glory, not mine, since after all He gave me the resources that allowed Lever to come into being.
