Persistence pays! A few months ago, BAIPA member Laurie King entered her first collection of travel stories, originally published in 2014, in several contests. She didn’t have high hopes, because the book hadn’t previously won any awards, but thought she’d give it a go anyway.
Surprise! And a lesson here for all BAIPA authors! Keep on keeping on!!!
