Well, I’m not exactly sure you can ‘win’ third place. Let’s just say Bad Way Out received a bronze metal in the South Regional category in the Independent Book Publishers Awards, otherwise known as the IPPYs.
I’m pleased, particularly because I did not enter the book into the South Regional category. I was notified by the folks at the IPPYs that they felt like the book was misplaced in the traditional “Thriller” category, and they made a decision to include it in the regional competitions instead. I’m glad they did because it worked out pretty well for me.
Will it change my life having the third best independent book in the South. Nope, but I’ll take it with many, many thanks.
BTW – I’m still selling about a book a day. On this, the eighth day of May, I have received payment on 10 books this month.
