I'm thrilled to be in great company at the 2016 Los Angeles Book Festival, which just announced the winners in its annual competition "honoring the best of world publishing."
The Soul Retrieval: A Novel was named runner-up winner in the Spiritual Fiction Category. Submitted works were judged by a panel of publishing industry experts using the following criteria: 1) General excellence and the author's passion for telling a good story, and 2) The potential of the work to gain a wider audience in the worldwide market.
Many thanks to “The Ladies of the Book Club” for a delightful and memorable evening, featuring THE SOUL RETRIEVAL, and for being the kind of readers every author dreams of having. Your questions came from a place of genuine interest and wonder, considered and thoughtful. You spoke of my characters like they had become your friends. Your discussions were in-depth and interesting. What a wonderful group of women!
Ann W. Jarvie is the award-winning author of The Soul Retrieval: A Novel, and The Woods of Hitchcock: A Thriller.
