Local Author receives international recognition
Through U.S. National Indie Excellence Awards
Ottawa, Canada, June 5, 2012 -- The Sixth Annual National Indie Excellence Awards recognized “You’re Special Wherever You Are” by Kita Szpak in the category of Children’s-Inspirational/Motivational as a finalist (one of two).
This national award, based in Los Angeles, CA is open to all English language books including small presses, university presses, independent publishers and self-published authors. Works published in 2009, 2010 and 2011 were eligible for consideration.
The competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence of presentation.
“You’re Special Wherever You Are” is a picture book/pre-chapter book that includes three stories about a camel, a zebra and a dragon, who are all a little different. They show us how important it is to be yourself no matter what the situation may be.
“We appreciate you; we applaud you and thank you for your great work. You are contributing to make independent publishing a great sector in the literary community,” said Ellen Reid, President of the National Indie Excellence Book Awards.
