OLGA Wins 2016 Novel of the Year
Jan 31, 2016 03:41 pm | Underground Book Reviews
"Over the last year, we received over 1,000 submissions, wrote 52 reviews and selected 11 Top Picks to vie for Novel of the Year. Each of these 11 books were vetted by a moderator, then read by a reviewer and at least two judges before the final decision was made. Selecting the Editor's Choice award was extremely difficult - with excellent books of all genres competing on the same level, it's hard to choose a favorite. Obviously, all 11 novels were well executed, but the final winner goes to a Young Adult novel that is so full of imagination and character that it was impossible to put down."

Thank you Underground Book Reviews! Very honored! Thank you Dillon Samuelson. You believed in this project. And your illustrations were good enough that they made it all real for me, the writer, as well as so many readers. Thanks Gary Ciesla for editing my draft. And thanks to my in-house team Harper and Anne Kelsey! I really hope that this award makes people interested in the book, and maybe opens doors for future projects for Dillon or me. Thanks again UBR for taking the time to consider my book and for all the services you offer the indie writing community! -Ted
