American Book Fest is an online publication providing coverage for books from mainstream and independent publishers to the world online community. Each year, they sponsor the "Best Book Awards" competition. I was feeling optimistic and hopeful... so I entered!
Alas, I did not win :-(. However, The Heart of Everything will have a 5-month listing on their website, so that counts for something! Congratulations to those who did win and best of luck to all those who enter for next year! Be sure to visit their website to check out all the different books in the competition, as well as to see my listing (you'll find it under "Cross-genre"). :-)
