Today ForeWord Reviews posted its list of finalists for ForeWord’s prestigious 2011 Book of the Year Awards. I am delighted to announce that my novel Altamont Augie was named an award finalist in the category of Historical Fiction. The jury of judges that determined this year’s finalists included editors, professional book reviewers, booksellers, librarians, and other book industry professionals. Winners–including the Editor’s Choice Prize for Best Fiction, a $1500 cash prize for which Augie is now eligible–will be announced on the conference floor of this year’s American Library Association meeting in Anaheim, CA, Saturday, June 23 at 10:00 a. m.
I would like to thank the editors and reviewers of Forward Reviews for this humbling distinction.
