So I believe I have mentioned that I have written two books, Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room. And I believe I’ve also mentioned that I recorded audio versions of both books.
What I have failed to mention is that about a month ago I received an email from the company who produces the audio version of my books congratulating me on being nominated for an Audie Award for my recording of Sparkly Green Earrings.
And my first thought was that I had no idea that there was such thing as an Audie Award.
My second thought was to wonder if it was similar to the Dundie Awards on The Office. Because, if so, awesome.
Third, I hoped it might involve some type of red carpet ceremony that would give me the opportunity to wear something besides yoga pants and my Y’all t-shirt.
So I did a little research and discovered that the Audies are like the Emmys, but for audio books and not television shows and they aren’t, to the best of my knowledge, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Which is sad because if I had the chance to meet him I’d ask him to sit and type an insightful diary entry on his computer.
Also, if there is a fancy red carpet awards ceremony, I’m sad to report that I haven’t been invited. And that’s such a shame because it would have given me an excuse to get eyelash extensions.
You can find all the finalists in this article in Publishers Weekly. I’m nominated in the Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction category along with Max Lucado and Joel Osteen.
Can you even imagine how excited they were to finally see their names on a list with mine?
I bet they even got invited to the awards ceremony and have probably already made their appointment to get eyelash extensions.
