Update: A third award came in after I published this post. The 2017 Eric Hoffer Book Awards gave me Honorable Mention in the Home category as well.
Two organizations have awarded prizes this month for my fiction book, A Couple with Common Cents. One award is for book design, and another award is for the story.
The 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Contest named A Couple with Common Cents as a finalist in the Best Overall Design Fiction category. This award includes a medal and recognition at a ceremony in New York City on May 31 in conjunction with Book Expo America.
In addition, the 2017 Missouri Writers Guild President’s Contest awarded this book Second Place Fiction Short Story. The award was announced at the Guild’s annual conference on May 6 in Columbia, Missouri. This award includes a cash prize.
I was excited when I found out I received these awards! The team at Morgan James Publishing did a great job with the cover and interior layout.
Built around themes of perseverance, faith, and mentoring, A Couple With Common Cents: A Short Story About Abundant Hope in Your Family Finances provides practical advice to couples. This inspirational story will guide readers to rebuild the bridges of communication with their spouses about money.
The book is available in fine bookstores everywhere and online:
