Orphans Assassins and the Existential Eggplant Wins Silver Award in International Competition

Posted: April 13, 2016 in Uncategorized


Orphans Assassins and the Existential Eggplant has been named  Silver Award Winner for Historic Fiction in the U.K.-based Wishing Shelf Book Awards. The competition is open to independent authors around the globe. Books are judged by two Reading Groups, one in London and one in Stockholm. The members of these groups are not “professional editors or ‘BIG’ in the publishing world, but they love to read and know a good book when they see it.” Judging was based on four critical areas:

  • EDITING Is there a flow to the text or is it a scratched record?
  • THEME Is the book current/interesting/original/exciting?
  • STYLE Is it a page-turner? The beginning grips you and the end knocks you for six.
  • COVER AND ILLUSTRATIONS Eye-catching? Age appropriate? Do they add to the book

I’m honored to be included among the winners of this fantastic award. Congratulations to my fellow writers and thanks to all the judges!
