Imogene in New Orleans Wins Writer’s Digest Award

I’m so proud of this book. Did you know that nearly 2 million books are published worldwide each year? That’s incredible. The odds are ever not in your favor if you’re trying to find readers. Therefore, I’ve done everything I could do to get Imogene in New Orleans in front of people. It’s been quite the interesting journey. Some things have worked and others have not.

2-25 highlighted Imogene in New Orleans WD Prize








A while back, I entered Imogene in New Orleans in the 23rd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards. Writer’s Digest awarded one grand prize and nine first place prizes. Imogene in New Orleans won first place in the Genre Fiction category!

The award judge from Writer’s Digest wrote some wonderful notes:

“This was just a well-written book in a great looking package. Your production values were exceptional…Your cover art is fantastic…. Your plot was well-clued and thoughtful. Your characters were fleshed-out…”

“Within the first chapter, we had a good idea of the general plot. There was no doubt that the book was a mystery from the discovery of the dead body. Many editors suggest a dead body in the first chapter and you delivered. If I were you, I would be looking at how best to market this novel. You should be proud of the result and get the word out.”

It felt really good to receive that award. I’m really grateful for it. Whenever you try to produce a book, if you want to do it well, you have to enlist the best people. A lot of amazing people helped me: editors Kristen Weber and Maryann Miller, copyeditor Penina Lopez, beta readers, writers, the great folks who provided blurbs (Dean James and Deep South Magazine), the swashbuckling illustrator and cover designer Philip Pascuzzo of Pepco Studio, my buddy the web-man superhero Travis Bryant (who created the colophon and my website), not to mention Rik Hall who formatted both the eBook and the print version of the book.

It took a lot of time to do and it was worth it. Big thanks to Writer’s Digest for recognizing my book. I hope to have another mystery with Imogene and the boys and Goose the English bulldog by the end of the summer 2016.

You may purchase the paperback or eBook at any time. Signed copies are also available. Thank you.
