Semper Avanti receives national recognition!
I am very pleased to announce my little book has been named a Distinguished Favorite by the 2021 Independent Press Award. Here's an excerpt from the press release just posted on the news and events page.
The competition is judged by experts from different aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. Selected award winners and distinguished favorites are based on overall excellence.
Semper Avanti is a love story. It's a true story about living through personal crisis. It's about moving "always forward" when you think you can't. It is about a wife suddenly thrust into full time caregiver, and one couple's long, excruciating journey through stroke recovery treatment.
In 2021, the INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD had entries worldwide. Participating authors and publishers reside in countries such as Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and others. In addition, books submitted included writers located in U.S. cities such as Atlanta to Santa Fe; Chicago to New York; from Boise to Honolulu, and others.
"We congratulate this year's 2021 winners and distinguished favorites in the annual INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD. The quality and quantity of excellent independently published books hit a record. Independents recognized are thriving around the world; and we are so proud to announce these key titles representing global independent publishing." said awards sponsor Gabrielle Olczak.
