I almost fell overboard when I received notice that my audio CD book of Alive on the Andrea Doria has won national recognition from the Hollywood Book Festival. To see a list of winners: http://www.hollywoodbookfestival.com/winners2010.htm
The Honorable Mention award will be celebrated in Hollywood on July 23 at the Roosevelt Hotel. I will not be attending but I hope to get noticed by film, best viagra cheap TV, and others in the production industry. Could this be the start of something big in Hollywood?? According to the Festival website:
“Based in the capital of show business, the Hollywood Book Festival aims to spotlight literature worthy of further consideration by the talent-hungry pipeline of the entertainment industry.”
A special thanks to my friend Karlheinz Baumann for his exhaustive production and editing! I also thank the five survivors who read their stories: Germaine Strobel, Mike Stoller, Madge Young Nickerson, Jerome Reinert, and Sister Angelita Myerscough. If you would like to hear a two-minute excerpt, go to www.PieretteSimpson.com. It’s on the homepage, along with the offer for free book with every purchase.
A press release will follow.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement!
