"SURVIVOR-The Benny Turner Story" honored in two indie book awards programs
The Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the National Indie Excellence Awards have recently named "SURVIVOR-The Benny Turner Story" a FINALIST in the Autobiography category for their book awards programs.
Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the largest not-for-profit book awards program for independent publishers and self-published authors, is presented by Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group in cooperation with Marilyn Allen of Allen O'Shea Literary Agency.
National Indie Excellence® Awards winners and finalists are determined "on a basis of presentation in every facet of the published product. Jurors value a synergy of both form and content as they review entries spanning a wide range of genres..."
These finalist honors add to the book's other distinctions as a Reader's Favorite Five Stars Book and a Booklist Starred Review.
An autobiography with diverse content and broad appeal across multiple disciplines (blues history, black history, American culture), "SURVIVOR" is a book with both educational and entertainment value. Well-summarized by Ray Simmons in his review for Reader's Favorite, "I loved the stories. I loved the characters, and I loved the history. It is the history of America. It is the history of African Americans, and it is the history of the blues."
