My third novel, Efraim’s Eye, has been awarded second prize in the category General Fiction by Reader Views Literary Awards – 2012. The complete list of winners can be found at http://www.readerviews.com/Awards2012Winners.html. I notice that three books from Strategic Book Publishing (my publisher) won awards. Although it is the author, not the publisher that has to submit the entry to the competition.
This is the first time I have submitted one of my novels into an awards competition. A full description of the awards and the submission process can be found at http://www.readerviews.com/Awards.html.
Reader Views is a company based in Austin, Texas that provides a wide range of services to self-published authors, and authors who use small publishers. (The latter is my category.) Reviewers who judge the awards are independent, professional readers and critics.
