The Epiphany of Joy and Melted Clowns Take the Texas Association of Authors’ 2015 Best Book Awards in Their Categories
I’m excited to announce that the Texas Association of Authors has chosen both The Epiphany of Joy and Melted Clowns, published by Aledo-based Progressive Rising Phoenix Press, as winners of the 2015 Best Books Awards for their respective categories.
The Epiphany of Joy, a Christian inspirational book that explores this powerful fruit of the Spirit, took the award for best inspirational book, and Melted Clowns, a children’s picture book illustrated by my seventeen-year-old niece, Emilie L. Hughes, captured best children’s book for ages 7 and up.
Texas Association of Authors, directed by B. Alan Bourgeois, focuses on promoting authors within the Lone Star State. The Association leverages the knowledge and expertise of various authors to promote their works locally and globally. Please visit their website at www.txauthors.com for more information about the Association. In addition, the winning books for this year’s Texas Association of Authors Best Book Awards can be found at http://books.txauthors.com/category-s/1986.htm.

For more information about my publisher, Progressive Rising Phoenix Press, please visit their website at www.progressiverisingphoenix.com. Progressive Rising Phoenix recognizes that the publishing industry has changed significantly over the past several years, and they believe that authors have choices in all aspects of their work, including production. They are a non-traditional publisher and their program is based on choice. I’ve enjoyed working with them over the past year, and both Amanda Thrasher and Jannifer Powelson have graciously taken the time to work closely with me as my books have gone (and are going) through the design and production process. I’m excited about what they are doing, and I’m excited about the future of Progressive Rising Phoenix Press.
