61 A.D. Gets Some Love

Posted: August 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

When it comes to my books, it seems like 33 A.D. is the wonder child. 33 A.D. gets all the attention and all the love, with 128 reviews on Amazon and even more than that on Goodreads. My other books still sell, but 33 A.D. is typically the one most people know about.

So it was nice to find out that 61 A.D. got a little recognition the other day, winning the award for Best Horror at the first annual eFestival of Words Best of Independent eBooks awards.

How cool is that? Now, I know this isn’t a Pulitzer or anything, but this award is special. The festival was organized and managed by Julie Dawson, of Bards and Sages Publishing, and all the titles had to be nominated by others in the Indie Book industry. Authors were not allowed to nominate their own books. Once all the nominations were in, the titles were put to the vote, again by people in the Indie publishing world. So this is, in effect, an award decided by my peers in Indie publishing.

What’s that famous line? “You like me. You really like me.” 🙂

In any case, considering some of the comeptition in the Best Horror category, I am floored that 61 A.D. took the top prize, beating out such fantastic books as The Zombie Bible, by Stant Litore, Knock Knock, by S.P. Miskowski, Dead Things, by Matt Darst, and even Origin, by Indie horror legend J. A. Konrath.

To say I am honored would be a huge understatement.

So to whoever nominated 61 A.D., and to everyone who voted for it, a huge, heartfelt thank you.

Lastly, some of the winners and I have decided to celebrate by putting all the winning books on sale. Not all the authors participated in the promo, but 8 of us did. Keep watching this space for details on how to get all 8 award winning books for 99 cents each!
