Something amazing happened! I have just been awarded my second Silver IPPY for my new book ‘BLACK TIDE’. It will be awarded while the Book Expo America is happening in NYC in June (no, I will not be there). The first Silver IPPY went to my second book, ‘Halocline’ last year 2011. In fact all three of my novels have won awards. Amazing indeed! Out of the thousands of self-published books printed each year there had to be some pretty mean competition and I am thankful to all of you. Our writing speaks of our times, regardless of genre or time periods. We have much to say.
Somehow the judges at IPPY took the time and effort to read my work and bring it into the light (there is a pun there if you’ve ever read my stuff.) Thanks to all involved in the IPPY awards, especially the authors without which…
This is not the end. We at Black Water Books have the fourth novel (working title ‘STONE’) in the pipe and hope to publish by the end of the year. The battle between good and evil continues. My people bear the brunt of the incursion, as always, but evil gets to give the world a taste of it in the form of a traveling art exhibit. This is as dark a novel as I have ever written; the pace as wicked as the evil itself. ‘STONE’ is as refreshing as it is familiar, but in a dark, torturous, foul and painful way. A new incubus is coming!!!
Mahalo to the IPPY staff and of course all the daring readers who reach beyond the status quo.
‘anoxic zone’, ‘Halocline’ and ‘BLACK TIDE’ are obtainable many other places on-line and in e-books as well. Signed paperback copies can be bought directly from the author as well!
