Kudos 2013

Dear Members of the Beverly Hills Book Awards Family,

Yes, that’s you! Whether your book was a winner or finalist this year or not, because you are entrants in our contest you are very much a part of the BHBAwards Family.

As you know, we started this contest to support authors and publishers in their efforts to promote their books. And certainly a contest winner sticker on a cover helps it to stand out. However, we want to emphasize to all of you that the accomplishment of getting a book into print and into the marketplace makes you a winner.

In the years ahead we look forward to seeing your books and doing what we can to help encourage the cause of authors who have the courage to put their work into the public eye. We want you to know we stand with you, we cheer you on, and we will continue to champion all who put their ideas, their creativity and their hearts forward in the wonderful endeavor of creating books.

Wishing you the very best of success in all your publishing endeavors.

Ellen Reid

Dear Ellen,

"Had a great morning with Cid Hunter, my assistant and fellow author, Kathy Porter, and of course my fantastically, supportive husband, Jack. This Sunday morning our living room was quickly transfomed into a professional video studio. Cid Hunter, the owner and president of ITV Productions is an award winning editor and producer as well as a delightfully engaging professional. He called the same day that Unpredictable Webs was announced as the winner of the National Beverly Hills Book Award for fiction and winner of the #1 President's choice: My awesome prize being a professional ITV video interview to use on my website, social media, youtube, etc. What a great prize and a fun shoot to start the week. "

Dear Ellen and Team,

"Being announced as the winner of the first National Beverly Hills Book Awards for fiction was a thrill and a fantastic way to begin the week. How fortunate I feel to display the awesome Winner of the 2013 Beverly Hills Book Awards seal on Unpredictable Webs. Knowing how important award stickers are for validation and book promotion, my publisher has placed the seal on my on-line book cover images for print, eBook, and audio. These covers will be shown for on-line book sellers prior to the May 1st release date. I am also delighted to have the actual winning seals to place on the physical books for the launch of Unpredictable Webs on Cinco de Mayo at Barnes and Noble in the Maria Pacifica Mall------my favorite book store and host for all four of my book launches. Just when I thought things couldn't get much better I received notification this morning that Unpredictable Webs was one of Ellen Reid's President's Choice prizes from ITV Productions (a phenomenal $2500 value). The president of ITV has already called me and we are scheduled to shoot an author video in my own home on the 28th of this month. Woohoo!"

"Thanks again-I am over the moon! You know when you’ve been working hard for years and you rarely receive any recognition? That’s what this felt like—a beautiful “God Nod” for all of the work that I’ve put in.

"Thanks for what you do to make authors lives so exciting!

"I appreciate you and what you do!"
