The trophy

So, my NRCA trophy arrived in the mail recently, all the way from the USA.

It's heavy. Seriously heavy.
My editor, who attended the award ceremony, nicknamed it 'the tombstone'.

At the moment, I have it sitting almost in front of me on my desk.
Whenever those doubt demons perch on my shoulder to whisper in my ear, I glance at this award and soldier on.

After 44 books, you'd think it gets easier, right?
Every single book is as hard to write as the last.
And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I can see why she called it the tombstone!

Congrats and I'll bet it helps in the motivation :)

LOL, it certainly does, Kez.
