“Dreams” wins Best LGBT Young Adult at the Rainbow Awards!

WinnerMDThe Rainbow Awards winners were announced last weekend, and to my surprise and delight, the first novel of my Dreams of Fire and Gods trilogy—DreamsWON in the Best LGBT Young Adult category!

I consider this novel, and the other two in the trilogy to be among my best work, so I’m thrilled by this news.  The Rainbow Awards were huge this year, with hundreds of submissions, and Dreams was up against a lot of fantastic books.

This is what some of the judges had to say about it:

Oh, this one was a pure pleasure to read. I would gladly place this book in the hands of any young person, and urge them to lay aside all else to fill their hearts, minds, and souls with the beauty of James Erich’s Dreams. (Cherie)


Dreams was absolutely an outstanding read for me. This is the first book in a trilogy and without doubt I shall buy the next two installments to this story. (Rosie)


Wow, this one came as a surprise because although I enjoyed fantasy when I was young – it isn’t my go to genre as an adult. I thought the writing and story very engaging. (Janet)

So onward and upward!  Dreams of Fire and Gods is now completely finished and available through Dreamspinner, Amazon, and other resellers.  So if you’ve heard horrible things about what I put my characters through in Fire (the second book), rest assured that it all turns out well—and unpredictably, if I do say so myself—in the final book, Gods!
