Ardmore Green won Honorable Mention in the 2018 Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards, in the Fiction category!
I received these comments from the judge. I think you'll like them.
This was a fantastic book. Well done! I have many great things to say about it. I would like to commend you on the production values of the book. They were by far the best presentation I saw in the books I read for the contest this year. The images were striking and the colors made me intrigued. They’re not frequently used hues on a cover, which I liked...The storyline was excellent as well. The pacing was well-done, and it was very clear that the plot had been meticulously thought out. The story keeps moving at a fast pace, which is what genre fiction should do. I also enjoyed the way that you included difficult subject matter in the book, but you handled the situation with respect and realistically. All of this added up to make a well-told tale...It should be no surprise to you that I am forwarding your story to the second round of the competition. Congratulations, you deserve it.
I'm grateful for this encouraging feedback!
