Today was an especially exciting day as I found out that my novel,Split Sense, won The 2011 Grace Awards in the speculative fiction genre.
Here is what the judges had to say:
“At the risk of sounding cliché, one awesome read! This speculative thriller is full of action, intrigue and a touch of science fiction. The plot twists and turns as we follow the lives of fraternal twins – a brother and sister, each of whom has an unexplainable, seemingly supernatural, ‘gift’. Adopted separately as infants, neither knows of the other’s existence until fate brings them together to combat a complex web of deceit and subterfuge that centers around a pharmaceutical company that has been conducting secret experiments on humans. Ms. Brink draws the reader in almost immediately and the surprises keep coming, right up to the very end. From a Christian perspective, the gospel is clearly presented but it never impedes the story or becomes preachy. As well, the supernatural events are woven in seamlessly and are not over explained, allowing a certain sense of mystery to prevail even after the conclusion. If you’re not a speculative fan already, you will be after reading SPLIT SENSE. It’s well written on every level and deserves its place in the ‘Grace Awards’ winner’s circle.”
Thank you to all my readers, especially those who took the time to vote for Split Sense and leave a brief review. If not for you I would still be a lowly author without this prestigious award beside my name. Of course, now I’m a lowly author who has won an award and fame & fortune may at any moment catch up to me & I will have my five minutes of fame on Book Talk TV or something. So thanks!
To those who haven’t yet read Split Sense…I know who you are…download it today. You won’t be sorry. It’s also available in ebook form at Barnes & Noble, Sony, & Smashwords, or paperback at most online bookstores.
