‘For Those In Peril On The Sea’ Wins Best Indie Book Award

17 Aug

BIBA2014InPerilA while a go, some of you will remember I posted about the importance of book awards for independently published books and writers.

As it happens, my first book For Those In Peril On The Sea has just been announced as the winner of the horror category in the 2014 Best Indie Book Award. As always, it’s great to get some recognition for my work. If you’re interested, you can find the official announcement here.

This award comes with a nice little statuette (although that might take some time to reach me), and a review on Jelly Bomb Review, which can be found here.

From the author of For Those In Peril On The Sea, a tale of post-apocalyptic survival in a world where zombie-like infected rule the land and all the last few human survivors can do is stay on their boats and try to survive. Now available in print and as a Kindle ebook. Click here or visit www.forthoseinperil.net to find out more. To download a preview of the first three chapters, click here.
