Woo-hoo! It’s a small honor, to be sure, but The Internet Escort’s Handbook Book 1: The Foundation garnered an Honorable Mention in the Nonfiction category of the Writer’s Digest 15th Annual International Self-Published Book Awards. The winners will be published in the March/April issue of Writer’s Digest.
It’s very exciting because I certainly did not expect to win an award, although I fantasized about a first place in Nonfiction. Kudos to the judges for looking past whatever knee-jerk reactions they had to the actual content of the book (they also judged on presentation).
I would love to enter Book 2: Advertising and Marketing in the upcoming year’s contest but I don’t know if I’ll have a retail-ready printed copy ready by the May 1 deadline. If not, well, there’s always the following year. It would just be cool to be in the contest two years in a row.
Although if I have to wait to enter Book #2, it will probably be in tandem with Book #3. I really am pushing to get Book #3 out in 2008 too. Just thining long-term.
It’s a very good feeling to get a little something like this.
