I am delighted and honoured to announce that my book, ‘Mila’s Meals: The Beginning & The Basics’, has been placed as a Finalist in the HEALTH/WELLNESS (NON-FICTION) Category of the international 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards (NGIBA).
The Next Generation Indie Book Awards (based in America) is the largest not-for-profit book awards program for independent publishers and self-published authors. This award is listed in the top ten awards for independently published books and is nicknamed the “Sundance” of indie book award contests.
(The term ‘indie’ traditionally refers to independent art – music, film, literature or anything that fits under the broad banner of culture – created outside of the mainstream and without corporate financing.)
The awards are judged by leaders of the indie book publishing industry, including many coming from long careers with major publishing houses, to identify books that deserve to reach a wide audience.
The winners and finalists will be honoured at the end of May in New York during BookExpo America.
As much as I would love to be there (and to see my book displayed at BookExpo America), I will be on an aeroplane back from the Gourmand Awards in China and counting the seconds until I can give Mila the biggest hug she has ever received!
Be sure to follow Mila’s Meals on Facebook to hear all the news from The Gourmand Awards from the 26 – 30 May 2017.
