Two recently released titles from SPARK Publications were finalists in the 14th Annual National Indie Excellence® Awards (NIEA): A Year and a Day: Divorce without Destruction by Jaime H. Davis and Overcoming Ordinary Obstacles: Boldly Claiming the Facets of an Extraordinary Life by Nesha Pai. These awards celebrate the value of independent publishing from both a design and editorial perspective.
The NIEA announcement said the contest was particularly intense this year due to the overall quality of entries from all over the United States. The announcement continued: “NIEA’s entrants are meticulously judged by experts from various facets of the book industry profession including publishers, writers, editors, and designers. Winners and finalists are determined on the basis of superior written matter coupled with excellent presentation in every facet of the final published product. Jurors value the synergy of both content and form as they review entries spanning multiple genres.”
Congratulations to Jaime and Nesha on this outstanding achievement. To view all of the winners and finalists, visit indieexcellence.com.
