You have to be in it, to win it. So they say, and I agree. Okay, so my novel Seeking The Dark wasn’t the overall winning novel in the (click here➡ 50 Best Indie Books of 2021 ⬅to see all the winners) but at least it has made it to number 22 in the awards chart for their best 50 indie books of 2021.

This was my first attempt at entering one of my novels into a competition, and it won’t be my last either. Of course, all competitions are about trying to win, and in truth, I am a little disappointed that Seeking the Dark didn’t make it into the top three, but number 22 isn’t really that bad.

I’m pleased that the first novel I ever wrote has made it into the top fifty indie books of 2021. So for Seeking The Dark to be placed at twenty-two is quite an achievement in my long writing journey. A huge Thank You to everyone who was kind enough to vote on it. Have a brilliant festive holiday, and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

I hope to have more interesting posts to share with you throughout 2022. So please keep yourself and your family safe over the holidays, and I shall catch up with you again soon.

  1. Hi Paula! Thanks so much for the update on the voting, Even though you are disappointed with not placing in the top three, in my opinion just being in the top fifty let alone making it to #22 is a huge achievement. Heartfelt congratulations!! Here’s wishing you and your loved one a safe and happy holiday season 🙂
