“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the contest, a minimum score is required before a 1st or 2nd place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the only entry in a category,” explains Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
“Anytime you win an award for something you have worked so hard on is exciting, and to place in five different categories, in such a prestigious contest like the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards, is truly an honor,” states Rose.
