Exciting news from Las Vegas ... The Nexis Secret was just named a finalist in Young Adult category of the
I Heart Indie contest sponsored by the Las Vegas Romance Writers of America Chapter. Squeee!
It's been a long time since my writing's been up for an award, so you bet I'm stoked about this one. Of course, this is my debut novel so maybe I'm a bit of a overacheiver. Who cares? Time for a happy dance!
Just being a finalist is exciting enough. They announce the winners of the contest on October 15, 2016 at the Las Vegas Valley Book Festival. Can you stand it? Check out the screenshot of my competition.
Barbara Hartzler is the debut author of The Nexis Secret—the story a girl with a gift to see the unseen world of angels. And the two secret societies vying for The Seer's allegiance. The Nexis Secret is inspired by Barbara’s college experiences and peppered with anecdotes from her teen missions trip to New York City. She’s always wanted to write, not necessarily about angels, but the idea was too good to pass up. As a former barista and graphic designer, she loves all things sparkly and purple and is always jonesing for a good cup of joe.
