CORRIDOR OF DARKNESS, a Novel of Nazi Germany, TAKES BRONZE IN INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS COMPETITION!

My first novel inspired by the espionage adventures of my father, Corridor of Darkness, a Novel of Nazi Germany, received a bronze medal today in the Suspense/Thriller category of the 18th annual 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards competition, the world’s largest book awards contest.

Since 1996 this contest has recognized excellence in independent publishing, and this year’s competition received 5340 entries  coming from the US, Canada, and ten countries overseas. The 2014 IPPY Awards medal ceremony will be held on May 28th in New York, on the eve of the BookExpo America convention.
