We’ve had bragging rights for several weeks now, but just been too busy to flaunt it! Well, we are ready to now!

AROUND THE WRITER’S TABLE is ecstatic at the success that three of our author-clients are enjoying. All of them were President’s Award winners at the FLORIDA AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION conference in August 2015.

Leslee Horner earned a SILVER in the Young Adult category for SUMMER OF STARS: THE PAST LIVES OF LOLA RAY – BOOK ONE. (Psst, we are wrapping up BOOK TWO very soon!)

Lynn Braxton brought home two SILVERs, one in the Adult Fiction: Genre category and one for cover design, both for LADY OF THE HOUSE, AN EDEN’S GATE NOVEL.

Virginia Gwynn won with MOTHER’S DAY, A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES, garnering a GOLD in the Short Fiction category.

We’ve got some celebrating to do!
