I'm a Nominee in the Goodreads Choice Awards 2012!

Every year I browse the list of books nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award with a starry look in my eyes and dream of being among them ... but this year I don't have to dream anymore!

If you are a member of Goodreads and enjoy my poetry, can you please do me the honour of voting for my poetry book, FABRIC? I would appreciate it so much. While this may be "just another award" for some, for me this is HUGE. It's the biggest recognition I've ever received for my work and I'm flabbergasted, overjoyed, and if I could add more adjectives without sounding like a total ditz I would.



  1. Congrats! Voted for you, hope it helps.
