The 2022 HEARTEN CIBAs Finalists for Inspiring & Uplifting Non-Fiction

Updated: Mar 14, 2023

I was mentally "dancing around the room" on Saturday when I learned that A Fraction Stronger remains in the running for First Place in the 2022 Hearten Book Awards novel competition for Uplifting and Inspirational Non-Fiction!

The Hearten Book Awards recognise emerging new talent and outstanding works in the genre of Uplifting & Inspiring Non-Fiction and Memoir.

As uncomfortable as flights are for me, I am absolutely considering "sucking it up" and making the long haul trek to Bellingham (Washington state, USA) for the Chanticleer International Book Awards and Novel Competitions (CIBAs) Banquet and Ceremony on Saturday, April 29th, 2023.

Another exciting moment that has come from stepping into uncertainty and choosing to share my story via A Fraction Stronger.
