Supreme Winner – McGrath House Indie Book Awards of 2016

Now, it’s not terribly often I win anything, so when I do, I reckon I need to shout it from the rooftops – or at least from my blog, so here I am, on top of the tallest building in Manila, shouting:THE PHOTOGRAPH WON THE SUPREME AWARD IN THE McGRATH HOUSE INDIE BOOK AWARDS OF 2016!!!!!How cool is that? I am over the moon!I want to take just a few minutes today to give my thanks to Rachel McGrath of McGrath House for organising and running the 2016, McGrath House Indie Book Awards (and not just because I won! Which I did by the way – just in case you weren’t aware.)Organising things like this is often fraught with danger and potential nastiness and dirty tricks. I have seen a number of people in the past buried under a weight of accusations and left desperately wishing they had never thought of the idea. I am thrilled to say this doesn’t appear to have happened for Rachel and the competition has gone off very smoothly.As an indie author, probably the biggest problem we face is obscurity. In an Amazon marketplace of, literally, millions of books, getting noticed can be a nightmare. We all spend many hours a week on marketing ourselves on Social Media, but even that can be a trial sometimes, just getting to be heard.Awards, such as this, reviews and social network connections all make the life of an isolated, lonely, frustrated and sometimes disheartened Author, bearable. To everyone who took time out of their busy days to vote for The Photograph, I can only say; Maraming, Maraming, Salamat Po! If you’d like to know what the fuss is all about – here’s a little teaser for you.When Tony Logan discovers an undeveloped roll of film from the 1970’s, he is excited to see what it contains. One photograph, in particular, will send Tony and his siblings on a desperate search for what really happened to their parents. From the 1300’s until the present day, Tony will discover their family has been cursed. Was their mother truly dead? Their search for answers will envelop them in magic, witchcraft, the underworld and supernatural happenings. A page-turner that will keep you rooted to the book till the bitter end. Please do pop over to my Amazon Author Page and check out The Photograph, plus the other books on offer. All available in Paperback or EBook format.What A Perfect Stocking Filler for someone you love: https://www.amazon.com/Grant-Leishman/e/B012ATB9N0/ Till next time, have a wonderful, peace-filled day.CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY!EMBRACE THE OPPORTUNITIES LIFE PRESENTS TO YOU AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!HAVE A GREAT LIFE AND SPREAD THE LOVE!CHANGING THE WORLD – ONE READER AT A TIME
