One of “My” Authors Receives Well-Deserved Recognition
Some of you remember Katey Schultz from her 2013 visit to Dog Ears Books, while others who weren’t with us on that day nevertheless know the book she read from at our bookstore event, the volume of short stories called Flashes of War. Katey is presently hard at work on her first novel, doing extensive revisions. In fact, all fiction writers, beginning or experienced, who haven’t read her blog are advised to make a visit, and if you don’t write fiction but think it might be a cushy way to make a living, her blog will open your eyes on that score. She tells it "like it is," as we used to say.
The writer’s life is not for sissies, but it does have its rewards – usually in the work itself but occasionally, also, recognition for a talented and hard-working young author like Katey.
And now, I’m more than happy to tell you that Ms. Schultz has received an IndieFab Book of the Year Award from Foreword Reviews and the Gold Medal for Adult Fiction in the Military/War category! Foreword IndieFab awards are judged by a select group of librarians and booksellers from around the country to help readers discover distinctive books from the indie publishing community, so if you haven’t read Flashes of War yet, now’s the time to catch up with Katey before her novel comes out. That way, you can tell people, “Oh, I know her work! She’s great!”
Do you want a signed copy? I have two left! Can you tell I’m very proud of having hosted Katey Schultz at Dog Ears Books?
