Purple Wins Finalist Spot for The Kindle Book Review’s Best Young Adult of 2012
Author Graham J. Sharpe’s debut novel named a finalist in indie book review
EAST SUSSEX, ENGLAND (September 6, 2012) — Purple by Graham J. Sharpe is competing as a Finalist for the title of Best Indie Book 2012 in the Young Adult category by The Kindle Book Review. Purple is one of 30 Finalists selected from a pool of 170 semifinalists. It is competing against four other Finalists in the Young Adult category.
The Kindle Book Review is a website catering to the lesser known, up-and-coming authors of the e-book generation. Its mission is to review Kindle e-books books that receive at least 10 four-star ratings or higher. It is not paid to review these books, allowing for an honest review.
The finalists were chosen based on how well the book grabbed the reviewers in the first few pages. Strong formatting, editing, and above average star ratings were also part of the criteria to become a finalist. Finalists were chosen in six categories, including Horror-Suspense, Literary Fiction, Romance, Sci-Fi-Fantasy, Thriller-Mystery, and Purple’s category, Young Adult. The Kindle Book Review’s Best Young Adult of 2012 Winner will be announced on October 1, 2012.
Sharpe, 46, is thrilled to have his first book among so much literary talent. “I think it’s great that The Kindle Book Review is able to give new authors a chance to be recognized,”
Bullying and tolerance, generational and cultural differences, loss and greed are just some of the major themes of this novel for young adults.
“Purple is categorized as Young Adult, but what is touched on and discussed in this book is relevant to just about everyone,” Sharpe explained. “One of the major themes is the difference between generations, how the young and the old interact and perceive each other. There is a message in the book about the information and the wisdom that old people have.”

About Graham J. Sharpe
At the age of 12, author Graham Sharpe regularly danced around the lounge to Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights.” Today, he still hasn’t decided what he’ll do when he grows up. So far, the East Sussex, England-based writer has worked in an ice cream shop, trained as a hairdresser, studied sociology and psychology, written for and performed with a touring theatre company, and backpacked across far-flung countries with loose change in his pocket. Graham now combines travelling with writing and he completed his first novel, Purple, during the sleepless, jet-lagged hours spent in hotel rooms around the world. Honored as a Kindle Book Review Finalist Best Indie Book for 2012, the 358-page ebook is available for £1.99/$2.99 (Kindle) and £7.19/$12.99 (paperback) on Amazon.
