Book award celebrations continue. Travel Glasses is my debut novel that released two years ago, but I didn’t enter it in book award contests until this year. Here’s a recap of results:
- IAN Outstanding Young Adult Winner (tied Insight Kindling)
- New York Book Festival, Young Adult Runner-Up
- Readers’ Favorite Honorable Mention in YA Mystery
- Summer Indie Book Awards Nominee (peer nominated)
If you haven’t read Calla and Valcas’ story, now’s the chance to begin the series for 99 cents!
The Independent Author Network’s picks for the Outstanding Book in each of its awards categories are in, and I got an exciting email this morning! Here’s what they said:
Our judges can’t pick one!
We are pleased to announce that your books, Travel Glasses and Insight Kindling, are the co-winners of the Outstanding “Young Adult” in the 2016 IAN Book of the Year awards.
This also means both books are in the running for IAN’s Book of the Year! The top three places will be announced Sept. 1.
Both titles are in the running for the 2016 Book of the Year, in an awards contest hosted by the Independent Author Network. Exciting!
