Alicia Ehrhardt (aliciabutcherehrhardt) Pride's Children is being featured on Read it and Reap today!

I'm excited - and would like to remind people here that this is a novel where disability is a subtle and persistent undercurrent. My main character, Kary Ashe, has CFS - and has learned to live with it and its symptoms. She used to be a physician, but can't do that any more. Learn what she does - and the consequences to her life - when she makes a single appearance on a talk show to advocate.

I have CFS, too, but I want this book to be judged by the same standard I apply to every book I read: entertainment and good writing. No dumbing down, no inspiration p0rn.

Please sign up to review a free copy if you'd like to - I'd love it to get some more Amazon and GoodReads reviews.

Alicia Ehrhardt (aliciabutcherehrhardt) Thanks to British Children's Book Author Billy Bob Buttons, who initiated the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards for children's and adults' books.


There are few Awards designed specifically for indies, and most other awards don't allow indies to apply or put onerous requirements on them (such as publishing other authors as well as themselves in their imprints).

The WSA doesn't - and you also get to be read by a London and a Stockholm group of readers, and get their feedback - a lovely side benefit.

Traditional publishers are also very rigid in their requirements for application deadlines. Instead, WSA has a rolling three-year application period which makes far more sense for self-publishers - allowing time for proper editing and formatting.

It has been a pleasure to interact with them.

Thanks, Betsy.

Winners are decided by April 1, so I'm not going to have much in the way of fingernails left by then.
