The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Conscious Living
I am over the moon about my book, The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Conscious Living, being chosen as your 2019 Winner for Books on Relationships. It's a thrill to
be recognized and, more importantly, professionally validated for the work that went into this project. I thank all of you, including your esteemed panel of judges, for the hours you dedicate to analyzing and evaluating books of every sort. Receiving this award has absolutely resulted in increased book sales and social media engagement for me. I even include your award announcement in my digital signature on all emails. I'm so glad I took the chance and entered. Thank you so much!
The Passion of Marta
Dear Everybody at the National Indie Excellence Awards,
I send an immense thank you to you all for recognizing my
novel, The Passion of Marta, as a Finalist in the 12th Annual award season. How thrilling to have toiled in anonymity for six years, and then be notified of your decision! Thank you for all you are doing to support self-published authors in this crazy world of books and publishing. Winning this award makes me feel that my novel is just as valuable and worthy as any that are corporately published, and for that, there is no way to thank you sufficiently.
I know I speak on behalf of all indie writers and publishers when I say thank you for the great work you are doing to promote our efforts.
I Love To Watch You Play.
Thank you for selecting my book, I Love to Watch You Play., as a finalist in the 14th Annual National Indie Excellence Awards.
It is truly an honor to receive this wonderful recognition from your organization. As a parent, I thoroughly enjoyed the process of producing a book that reflects the lives of sports families from my perch on the bleachers for over 20 years.
Here’s to the generous spirt of all your superb winning writers and finalists! I enjoyed scrolling through these amazing talents and thank them for allowing us a peek into their imagination. I raise my pen to the National Indie Excellence Awards for creating a safe and happy space for this spirit to shine.
