Lake Buena Vista, FL ?On August 4, the Florida Authors & Publishers Association (FAPA) awarded its prestigious annual President?s Book Awards for the best books of 2017 and the first half of 2018 submitted nationally by authors and publishers. The event, which took place at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, recognized outstanding books by awarding gold, silver, or bronze medals.

Forty-five book categories ranging from children?s books to adult fiction, from memoirs to self-help, and from business books to e-books were evaluated. FAPA recognizes both independent and traditionally-published books. All medals are awarded based on a points system in the judging of books. The judges for the program are librarians, educators, and publishing professionals.

?The 2018 President?s Book Award winners exemplify excellence in the publishing world. This year we had the largest number of books ever submitted! FAPA is proud to recognize and celebrate these dedicated and talented authors,? said Angelina Assanti, FAPA President.
