This past weekend the New York State Outdoor Writers Association (NYSOWA) Spring Conference was held in Corning, New York. It was so good to meet many of my fellow NYSOWA writers in person (vs. Zoom).
During Saturday's award ceremony, The Last Coon Hunter: Book I of the Ryland Creek Saga, Fifth Anniversary Edition, the audiobook, won Second Place in the Television, Radio, Video, and Audio category!
I'm humbled and honored once again. I thank God, my family, and friends for their constant support--keeping the faith in me when I would often misplace it.
A special thanks to the magnificent voice talent of Wayne Thompson, whose natural connection to the story made the production of the Ryland Creek saga's first audiobook both enjoyable and gratifying. God willing, expect to see An Exceptional Hound: Book II of the Ryland Creek Saga, placed into audiobook later this year.
Another shout out to Joyce Mochrie, world's best copy editor, for preventing me from tripping over my own pen. (It happens. A lot.)
A very special nod to author/publisher/editor and my good friend, Glenn Sapir, who received the Hans Paller Memorial Award, which was only the sixth time this honor has been given since NYSOWA's creation in 1967!
And to the forests of Painted Post: There truly is a magic here, if you know where to look.
Please see the official press release below listing all the NYSOWA categories and award winners.

P.S. This award is really making me rethink the "retirement" thingy. Particularly salient when Glenn Sapir asked when my next book was coming out. . . .
