The Red Star: Sword of Lies wins the IPPY GOLD MEDAL!!!


The Red Star: Sword of Lies has won the gold medal at the 13th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards!!!

======================
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
======================

May 21, 2009 – New York, NY – Organizers of the 13th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards, conducted to honor the year’s best independently published books, have announced the results for the 2009 competition.

While much of the world economy is in a slump, books and reading are gaining ground on more expensive forms of entertainment, and the annual list of “IPPY” award winners represents the kind of alternative viewpoints today’s readers crave.

This year’s awards attracted 4,090 entries from throughout the U.S. and Canada, plus most English-speaking countries worldwide. Medal-winning books came from 44 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, eight Canadian provinces, and six countries overseas. Launched in 1996 as the first unaffiliated awards program open exclusively to independent, university, and self-published titles, the 2009 IPPY Awards will be presented to winners at a gala celebration during BookExpo America in New York on Friday, May 29th.

The IPPY Awards are presented by IndependentPublisher.com, the online “voice of independent publishing” operated by publishing services firm Jenkins Group of Traverse City, Michigan. The annual IPPY Awards celebration on Friday night during BookExpo America is a highlight of the weekend and publishing media are welcome to attend.
