It's an honor just to be nominated...

The audio book of Hand of Fate, narrated by Pam Turlow, is up for an Audie, the recorded book industry's version of the Academy Awards. Winners will be announced May 25th at a gala in New York City. I'm not sure if I can take any credit, but heck, I still feel proud.

""I honestly did the slack-jawed face for about a solid minute," Turlow, of Elmhurst, said when the engineer told her she was nominated for two Audies. Her version of "Kiss," by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy, is an Audie finalist in the inspirational/faith-based fiction category. Turlow's narration of "Face of Betrayal," by Lis Wiehl and April Henry, is a nominee for fiction."
