I’m so proud that A Beautiful Morning won a gold medal in the FAPA 2018 President’s Awards. This is my first book; for it to have been selected for such a prestigious honor is thrilling and a wonderful reward for all of my hard work.

2018 Gold Medal for How-To/Self Help

The FAPA Gold Medal Award provided an instantaneous (and continuing) boost to my promotional efforts. When folks see that One Drop–A Slave! has garnered a national award, they know the book stands above countless others they encounter on the market.  The medal draws attention to the physical book and to online advertising and serves as an “entrance key” into various events, book fairs, library and school presentations, historical societies and more.

2018 Gold Medal for Historical Fiction

The FAPA Gold Medal Award gave immediate validation to the quality of my book, Horses of the Sea!  Everyone I know is impressed with the national recognition Horses of the Sea has earned! I have no doubt that it will open doors that would otherwise have been only a dream!
 
Thank you to FAPA for this tremendous opportunity.

2018 Gold Medal for Children's Picture Book (0-7)

Winning FAPA’s 2017 President’s gold medal award in Adult Fiction for my novel, Zero Day: China’s Cyber Wars, was an incredible honor that presented an amazing marketing opportunity in book reviews, print, radio and TV media exposure and author events of all types. The glossy medal identified my book as a winner and validated what I had felt ever since I wrote the words ‘The End;’ this book was special. I was now and forevermore, an award-winning author.

Not only does the FAPA award bring confidence to the reader that they will be purchasing something already vetted and praised, but it gives confidence to the author as well—knowing that talented, professional writers have thoroughly appraised one’s work and believe in its value.

“Entering the FAPA President’s Book Award was one of the best things I could have done for my book. I had no idea when I entered the contest, the honor that would come with winning. I even wore my medals home on the plane.”

… a juried book award lends a certain prestige and legitimacy to a title. Given a choice between a best-seller campaign and a book award, I’d choose the award any day!”
