And the results are in! LADY BETH is the 1st Runner-Up in the Crime/Mystery Category and has received an Eric Hoffer Book Award!

Lady Beth: Eric Hoffer Grand Prize Award Shortlist

I am extremely pleased – which also translates to HOLY SHITBALLS!!!! – to share that Lady Beth has been shortlisted for the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize Award. A previous finalist for the DaVinci Award 2019 and winner of the Carousel Aware Prize in 2017 – the years of slogging away on this little book have already come back tenfold. Never give up. That is all!

 

“As the annual judging draws to a close, the Eric Hoffer Award announces a small set of grand prize award finalists. This small list or “short list” of finalists is an honored distinction of its own and is announced publicly during the spring of each award year prior to the grand prize announcement. Below are the current and previous short-listed entries in alphabetical order by book.”
