The Diamond Book Awards
I just got the news: An Honest House is a finalist for the Diamond Book Award!
I am humbled and thrilled at the very same time. Hooray!
Thank you, Kevin Cooper, for offering this wonderful award to authors and for including me in the short list. Kevin is a UK author, musician and book reviewer who does much to highlight the work of authors from around the world.
Congrats to my fellow finalists. It’s a privilege to be in your company.
Here’s the notification I got from Kevin:
The Top Five Nominations for The Diamond Book Award
I can’t believe we’ve got there already folks! All the reviews for the first year of the Diamond Book Awards are complete. There were twenty-five submissions, but only twelve were accepted. Selecting the top five from those twelve was a gruelling exercise; far harder than I imagined it would be. From the five I’ve chosen, it must be said… All of them hold equal weight for the DBA.
In no particular order, here are the final five nominations with links to each review:
The Improbable Journeys of Billy Battles by Ronald E Yates
Lemon Girl by Jyoti Arora
An Honest House by Cynthia Reyes
The Fantastic Travels of William and the Monarch Butterfly by Christina Steiner
Wings of Mayhem by Sue Coletta
The Diamond Book Award is a tough award to win. All have done incredibly well to get this far. It is now up to the judging panel to decide who the award will go out to. For more information on the Diamond Book Awards please visit: The Diamond Book Awards
The Diamond Book Award winner will be announced in next month’s newsletter. Good luck guys!
