I found out yesterday that Accidents of Providence has been named a finalist for the 2014 Townsend Prize in fiction. It’s an award given biennially to an outstanding novel or short-story collection published by a Georgia writer residing in the state. The award recipient will be named in April.
I’m honored and surprised and really quite touched by this recognition. It’s been a long year of intensive writing, rewriting, reading, repeating, tossing, and writing again — so this means a lot, especially now.
Thanks to the GA Center for the Book, Georgia Perimeter College, and the Chattahoochee Review.
