Secrets of Artemis has received the Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Award!

Huge thanks to indieBRAG! Today I’ve just found out that my self-published YA novel, Secrets of Artemis, received the coveted Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Award! Super proud & excited book-mama here! Their Review:  “I have been reading many of these kinds of books (Teen/YA medieval/ancient fantasy) recently and this one is the most well-written, error free, and interesting of the last dozen or so.
