An Email from my publisher: Please read it all. Great news!
Hello everyone! In my efforts to get out the news that Fred Rivera’s RAW MAN is a finalist for the International Latino Book Awards, under the category of Best Latino Focused Fiction, I neglected to scroll down to see that he is also a finalist in THE BIG ONE! The Mariposa Award for BEST FIRST BOOK.
THE MARIPOSA AWARD
Best First Book – Fiction – English
Covering the Sun with My Hand, Theresa Varela, Aignos Publishing, Inc.
Divine Sight, Eduarda Amondragon, Create Space Independent Publishing
Raw Man, Fred Rivera, A Word With You Press
The 16 Rule, Evelyn Gonzalez, Friesen Press
So Fred now has a one in four chance of winning this, too! We will be at the awards ceremony in San Francisco at the end of June, and manning a booth to sell RAW MAN and introducing his work and A Word with You Press to over 25,000 librarians who are paying $35 each to gain access to the floor! Thanks again to all of you for your support!
All our best,
