ODDBALLS was recognized at the Independent Publisher's Book Awards, held at the Willis Tower in Chicago. They awarded the book a bronze medal in the Popular Culture category. Porcupine's Quill Publishers picked up my bronze medal and I just received it yesterday. It's a great honour... and heavy.

For those of you living, or visiting, in British Columbia, there's a new red ale brewed by Tin Whistle Brewery in Pentiction.  I've given them permission to use my wood engraving portrait of Bill Miner for their new Hands Up! red ale and I recommend it.  It's a tasty brew.

It's me being a braggart again.
Some more good news: I just heard that the Porcupine's Quill paperback edition of Oddballs received a bronze award at the Independent Publishers Book Awards, in the Popular Culture category.

Maybe Independent Publishers Book Awards is the same thing as the Indiefab Award nomination I heard about a while ago. I don't know.
