What a great way to start this day!
I got an email from U.S.A. Book News telling me that etouffee's book Words May Go has been chosen as an Award-Winning Finalist in the Poetry: General category of the 2014 USA Best Book Awards.
The title will be listed live on USABookNews.com for an additional ten (10) months.
The 2014 USA Best Book Awards brought in over 2000 entries, their biggest year since starting this program in 2004.
A major publicity campaign announcing the award results is already underway and will continue throughout the holiday season. A national press release will be blasted out next week to 200,000+ media outlets and publishing industry contacts.
Not bad for a first collection!
Quill and Parchment will be reviewing Words May Go in the December issue.
