Seal of Approval!

Guess what The Boys Upstairs won?

Yes, it’s the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval!

From their own documentation,

The CWG Seal of Approval is our program for helping evaluate the Catholicity of a book. It’s a gatekeeping tool for bookstore owners and readers, and a great plus for any book that’s reaching that audience. Intended mostly for authors that don’t have access to a Imprimatur (like writers of fiction), it basically says that the book does support Catholic belief and traditions.

How cool is that?

    Very cool. Hope you don’t mind that I’ll keep it a secret from all the non-Catholics I’m trying to push toward your stories!

      LOL! It doesn’t mean the book is exclusively Catholic. Only that nothing in the book contradicts Catholic teaching.
