"We are proud to announce this year's winners who truly embody the excellence this award was created to celebrate. Their works are representative of the creative storytelling, bold concepts and innovative ideas which makes the President's Book Awards so well respected by librarians and those in the publishing industry. We salute all of our winners for their fine work." said FAPA's President, Patti Brassard Jefferson.
"Publish with Purpose" both embodies and explains the publishing philosophy, strategies and methods Emerald Lake Books has developed over the years as they've worked with local, national and international authors.
The book offers a series of exercises an author can complete to better understand the goals they have, not only as an author for their book or business, but for their readers as well. These exercises establish "guardrails"
"There are so many authors who have a real and valuable story to tell, but they become so passionate about sharing their thoughts that they forget about the reader and why that person picked up the book in the first place," Alemany says. "At Emerald Lake Books, we've developed this series of exercises to coax the best work possible from our authors, enabling them to share their stories while making a deeper and more meaningful connection with their readers. It can be as arduous as writing itself—and also just as exciting! But the result is worth it in so many ways."
Also honored at the FAPA Conference were three more authors from Emerald Lake Books (https://emeraldlakebooks.com). Together, the four authors brought home six awards.
