Best of the Independent eBook Awards Honors

Pleased to announce two titles receiving top honors at this year’s eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards! Boone’s File Book One is Best Thriller, while Sean’s File Book Two was named Best Short Story after public voting. Thanks to Julie Ann Dawson and company at eFest, as well as everyone who took the time to register and vote! You did this!

As always, retail links for all my titles are available on the sidebar. Read, Rock, Review, Recruit, and Repeat!



In production news, Boone’s third novel, One Last Scent of Jasmine, continues progress in primary editing and remains on schedule for a winter release.  Jasmine is nine percent complete in that stage and lookin’ good.

OLSJ_225x337DSIn production news, Boone’s third and my seventh, second-longest novel passed Content Edit over the weekend. One Last Scent of Jasmine is now undergoing scrutiny by the Editress in the throes of the Main  Edit, and shall be until sometime in the coming winter. God willing, Boone’s tussle with elements of our own government will be available for the deep, dark nights of a warmly snuggled reading season.

A reminder also that Daniel Sean Ritter’s  Romeo Down: A Short Story, and Boone’s debut, Absinthe and Chocolate, are finalists in public voting at the 2015 EFestival of Words Best of the Independent EBook Awards. Thanks in advance of your trouble to register, vote, and support them for Best Thriller and Best Short Story!

As always, stay safe and sane and Choose to Love. -DA

2013 EFestival of Words Honors

Very pleased to be able to announce this morning that my debut and lead title of Jon’s Trilogy, that novel I love, The Anvil of the Craftsman, was honored in three categories at the 2013 eFestival of Words Virtual Book Fair. Anvil brought home Best Editing, thanks to the tireless efforts of She Who Must Be Obeyed, Single Candle Press Lead Editor Carrie Andere.

Anvil was originally nominated in five categories: Best Editing, Best Action/Adventure, Best Villain, Best Hero and Best Novel. In the first three cases, the title survived the cut made by the judges at the event. The end result, two Runners-up and one top honor, is the result of nearly two months of public voting. These are our first public awards for what has proven to be a very well received title, currently rated 4.8 stars over the course of 44 Amazon reviews. Anvil remains and will be for the foreseeable future a free, full-length download through most venues.

Thanks to all who assisted in the effort to obtain the visibility and the recognition that this year’s eFest generated. I am humbled and honored by the support of my friends and readers on a continual basis.

eFest Winner!
