A quick post of public kudos to my publisher, ScienceThrillers Media, for two recent award wins:
- Orbital Paths, by Richard Meyer, silver medal winner in the Independent Book Publishers Association’s (IBPA) Benjamin Franklin Awards for Poetry
- And Eating Bull, by yours truly, silver medal winner in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) for Great Lakes, Best Regional Fiction
As a new, boutique publisher, these were the only titles ScienceThrillers Media published in 2015, which speaks to their dedication to produce high-quality books with a science or medical theme.
As many writers know, there are all sorts of writing contests out there looking to prey on writers, and there are others that only consider titles from the Big Five. The IBPA and IPPY awards were created (28 and 20 years ago respectively) to offer reputable recognition to independently published books.
Have a great week ahead and happy reading, writing, or publishing to you all!
