I just found out The Faithful made it through to the Quarter-Finals in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award's Mystery/Thriller category. That means it's in the top 500 (from the original 10,000 entries), and in the top 100 for the Mystery/Thriller category.
Even better, my awesomesauce author buddy J.D. Faulkner made it through to the Quarter-Finals in the Sci-Fi category. So excited for her!
The next step: Publisher's Weekly will read and review the whole manuscript. So, ok. Now we wait!
In the meantime, check out J.D.'s website here. http://www.timearchivistnovels.com
