It’s always an honor to be recognized for your work. I don’t think anyone could deny that statement and recognition from your peers is always a grand experience. With Danny the Dragon receiving non-stop recognition since its release, I keep thinking it can’t get better. A few months ago, I received confirmation that my eBook about my other undeniable cause Celiac Disease and Gluten-Free living Gluten and Your Aging Body had not only been nominated, but won a Silver Medal for eBooks in the Florida Publisher’s Association’s President’s Book Awards.
The Florida Publisher’s Association is a collection of publishers, self-publishers, authors, publishing industry friends and publishing vendors from Florida founded in 1983 by Betty Wright with the intent of giving Florida’s growing group of book publishers an opportunity for education and networking. In 2005, then-President of the group Dinah Arnette decided to start recognizing the authors and publishers of the group in honor of their 25th anniversary, establishing the FPA President’s Book Awards. The tradition continued and in 2011 they decided to open the competition up to the public for the first time.
I cannot express fully how honored I am to be a part of this incredible group and to be featured among the other winners. To have two books recognized for excellence by my peers in the publishing and writing industry is the greatest honor I could ever ask for.
Thank you, FPA and thank you colleagues. It truly is a great honor.
From our home to yours, Tina Turbin.
