Nancy’s a Winner

Our talented and very prolific author Nancy C. Craddock has been awarded the “Moonbeam Award.” http://www.moonbeamawards.com/index.php For “Beneath the Paint.”

Is that the moon, or stars in my eyes. I’m so proud of my friend. While the rest of us are revising and angsting (okay I made that word up) over our years-old manuscripts, Nancy is getting the job done and winning awards.

To quote Nancy, “maybe it’s just me, but” I think Nancy ROCKS… P. S. It’s not just me.

Another Loud Shout

authorgal-300dpi-3125x4167 (1)

Author: Nancy Cadle Craddock

Over four decades ago, my father moved our family to Baton Rouge for work-related opportunities. A couple of years later, my husband and I graduated from LSU and enjoyed living in Louisiana during our early years together before moving to Houston, TX and later, Atlanta, GA.

Our hearts are broken by the destruction of the recent flood through southern Louisiana. Although several of my family members did evaculate their homes, all were able to return to very little damage. Profit from the sale of “Lullaby of Lake Charles” will be donated to help Louisiana Flood victims.

It seems like I’ve been writing Lullaby of Lake Charles all of my life. To have all the bits-and-pieces of people, places and things that have been swishing-around for years in my thoughts and mind come together in one coherent tale, with a surprise ending, is a dream come true for me.

Lullaby of Lake Charles is a contemporary romance. It is a story of love on many levels and one that I hope readers will enjoy.

Lullaby of Lake Charles is about:

Margaret Sinclair, wealthy and childless, traveling from Baton Rouge, LA to Houston, TX.

Chloe, a young and unwed mother, stranded outside of Baton Rouge, LA.

A psychic’s uncanny prediction

A young father who lives by his own rules.

A sheriff protecting his wayward son.

A crash. A witness. A baby.

The ending no one saw coming.

GA AUTHOR OF THE YEAR AWARD

My friend and fellow “Writer and Wannabe” Connie Fleming is much too humble to post anything about her latest honor. However, I wanted to let everyone know that Connie was honored last night at the highly esteemed GEORGIA AUTHOR OF THE YEAR banquet. Connie’s fabulous YA “Halley’s Hope” was a finalist in a competition full of rich and exciting books for all ages. Not only did Connie write a magnificent story, she and fellow “Writer and Wannabe” Stephanie Fenton created the book’s cover. If you haven’t seen the cover with Stephanie’s horse, it is gorgeous and worth the cost of the book alone.

Warning: Don’t be surprised if Connie’s story stays in your mind long after you’ve turned the last page! It is that good!

Congratulations, Connie. You aimed for the moon and you certainly landed among the stars!
