Great achievements to our partnes Tania Hershman and Lynn Montgomery!

We are very happy to update you with two great achievements of books we're collaborating with!

BUTT UGLY by Lynn Montgomery won the Eric Hoffer Award for best children's book!

The Eric Hoffer Award for short prose and books was established at the start of the 21st century as a means of opening a door to writing of significant merit. It honors the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. The winning stories and essays are published in Best New Writing, and the book awards are covered in the US Review of Books.

And The White Road and Other Stories by Tania Hershman is longlisted for the prestigious Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award - now renamed the The Cork City – Frank O’Connor Short Story Award.

With a prize of €35,000 for the winning book, this is the world's most lucrative award for a short story collection!

Kudos to both Lynn and Tania! Your books are faboulous and it's a great honor to be your partner and to work with you to green up your books!
