Another Book Award

Purple Dragonfly Book Award

Congratulations Diane!

Ms. Robinson took second place for chapter books in The 2012 Purple Dragon Book Awards. Kid Lit Reviews.
The Purple Dragonfly Book Awards recognizes and honors 
accomplished authors in the field of children's literature. Being
honored with a Purple Dragonfly Award will confer credibility upon
the winners, as well as provide extra positive publicity to further their success.
When I came home from the Lieutenant Governor Awards on 
June 14, 2012, still wearing my medal and a permanent smile pasted
on my face, I received an email that my book won another award. 
How much excitement can a girl have in one day?
The news was incredibly exciting and made me cry once again. I've
put in many years of hard work to get book one accepted by a publisher;
9 years and 27 rejections to be exact.
The point is, if a writer doesn't have the guts to succeed, they 
probably won't.
The publishing industry is not for the faint of heart. It does take guts, and 
several pounds of stubborn, but mostly, it take a ton of belief in yourself
as a writer.
