We just found out (4:30 pm, Wednesday, May 26th) that Chris’ book, Scimitar Moon, won top honors in the ForeWord Magazine 2010 Book of the Year Award, in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category. There are three levels of awards—Gold, Silver, and Bronze—just like in the Olympics. Well, Chris was the Gold winner. Needless to say, we’re ecstatic! Books were judged on the following criteria: editorial excellence, intent of book met by author, originality of subject matter, accuracy, author credentials, and professional packaging. ForeWord Reviews brings good books published by small and independent publishers to the attention of libraries and bookstores. Want to help? Visit your local library and bookstores and ask them to stock Scimitar Moon, by Chris A. Jackson, published by Dragon Moon Press, ISBN # 189694454X. Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and good wishes!
