Haunted Richmond, Virginia Nominated for Library of Virginia Literary Awards

Haunted Richmond, Virginia has been nominated for Library of Virginia Literary Awards. You can find my book in the nonfiction nominations, along with others, including L. B. Taylor's newest Ghosts of Virginia XII book. You can view all the nominees at 08 Nominees. My book may be soon available for voting from readers too, People's Choice Awards. Below is from the website on that:
The awards will be closely tied to the
James River Writers' sixth conference, to be held October 10-11, 2008, at the Library. James River Writers, in partnership with the Library of Virginia, will present the Annual People’s Choice Award at the Celebration. The winners of this award are chosen from nominated works in non-fiction and fiction by readers voting at libraries, bookstores, and online. The 2007 winners were, in fiction, Adriana Trigiani for Home to Big Stone Gap, and, in non-fiction, William M. Kelso for Jamestown: The Buried Truth.
Last year, voting took place between may 14th and Augus. Keep eyes open at your branch of the library and vote for Haunted Richmond, Virginia as people's Choice. Also keep tabs at the link above for voting online too, or at your local bookstore.
