While I was off on Cloud Nine after winning a Gold IBPA Ben Franklin Award for While They’re Still Here, my parents won another award for their grace and grumbling. The words I originally scribbled for my brother won a Bronze IPPY Award in the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
I just can’t take full credit for it. My parents were amazing, and the boundless involvement of my friends and family enriched their lives and this book. I am filled with joy and gratitude.
The "IPPY" Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents, 5,000 "IPPYs" have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
