It is with deep gratitude that I thank Independent Publisher magazine for the Editor’s Choice Award given today to Little Madhouse on the Prairie. This national publication represents the voice of the independent publishing industry.

Independent Publisher magazine recognizes the best of the newly released, independently published titles as reviewed by their editorial staff over the past few weeks.

“These books are honored each month for exhibiting superior levels of creativity, originality, and high standards of design and production quality. Being chosen as an Independent Publisher Highlighted Title brings well-deserved attention to the book, author, and publisher, and the credibility and recognition that can lead to further reviews, publicity, and sales.”

My deepest appreciation to Mark Bruce Rosin and Barbara Obermeier for what they brought to the book. This award really belongs to them.

  10. Marion,

    I believe that part of the reason for
    you receiving this award was to recognize
    that the pain you relived to share your
    experiences would help others to not
    suffer as well. That reason makes this
    award even more well-deserved.
