Literary Awards!

I’ve been spending hours every day, working on this second novel for Revell. I’m up to 64,000 words…on the home stretch to 75,000. All of the rain we’ve been having in Northern California has helped (tennis keeps getting canceled), but there is at least one moment every day when my brain feels fried and I’m convinced I’m the world’s worst writer.

So today, when I received the news by Reader Views that Copper Fire won a
2nd place Literary Award for Best 2008 Fiction Book for Religion/Spirituality…and Grit for the Oyster won two 2nd place awards for Best 2008 Non-Fiction for Writing/Publishing and Best 2008 Non-Fiction for How-To…

well, I felt that fresh wind of writing again!

About Suzanne

Suzanne Woods Fisher writes bestselling, award winning fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books. Her interest in the Plain People began with her Old Order German Baptist grandfather, raised in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne's app, Amish Wisdom, delivers a daily Amish proverb to your phone or iPad. She writes a bi-monthly column for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. She lives with her family in California and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you can't take life too seriously when a puppy is running through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

    Congrats!!! Suzanne, No way could I do what you’re doing. I would have dozens of brain freezes all the time. But I sure do enjoy reading what you produce.
