Carleen Brice is the Breakout Author of the Year!



Hey everybody! Drop by The Pajama Gardener and wish our good friend Carleen Brice, author of Orange Mint and Honey a big congratulations. She is in New York City as we speak and celebrating last night's award from the African American Literary Awards Show as the Breakout Author of the Year! Looks like they haven't updated their site yet, but based on the big names among last year's winners there is some stiff competition for this award!

Woohoo!!! Congratulations for this much deserved award for a great novel! Stop by here and leave a stone (o) or a comment and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the weekend to receive a free copy of Carleen's book.

Can't wait that long? Order it online from Amazon here.

How fantastic is this news, Lisa?! I positively enjoyed every word of ORANGE MINT AND HONEY and am thrilled for Carleen! *VBG* Denver writers continue to garner awards and acclaim.

P.S. Having already purchased more than a few copies of the novel, please ignore this as an entry.

Literary Quote

It is worth mentioning, for future reference, that the creative power which bubbles so pleasantly in beginning a new book quiets down after a time, and one goes on more steadily. Doubts creep in. Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.


Virginia Woolf
