My name is Tal Boldo, and I like to write fiction under pen names that relate to my stories. E. L. Neve is an anagram, a clue to two individuals, since this idealized duality inspired me to write my award-winning love story, "Looking Glass Friends."
In this blog I'll post news relating to the novel, my adventures with producing my own audiobook with how-to articles, author news and book giveaways, and anything relating to art, poetry and literature that catches my fancy.
I remember talking to my best-friend in January 2017 and wondering if "Looking Glass Friends" will win any awards. He said, "Maybe not...and it's OK." Because he didn't want me to be sad. And I speculated, "Maybe 3." But I really hoped for more.
And now...how lovely that I get confused about which award I should write about, because there are 10 so far. So here's the list, because it makes me happy. The Los Angeles Book Festival will always be dear to my heart, because it's the first award I've ever won. I felt very special and raised a toast to myself, by myself. Of course, Ellie & Neil were there too, in my imagination.
