Stubborn as hell, a bookworm more interested in studying than dating, she needs a little—no, a lot—of fun in her life. Well,Austin’s just the guy who can give it to her. He promised her a good time—nothing more—and wow… does he ever deliver!

Evolved Publishing Earns New Honors and Awards in May 2014

And the awards just keep on coming….

We speak often of our commitment to quality, and awards are a sure way to bolster that claim. We understand that awards are both highly subjective and incredibly competitive, which makes receiving them a real challenge. Indeed, we believe some of our books have been extremely deserving of awards for which they were nominated, and yet they came up short in the voting. After all, judges are people, too, and they have their own preferences.

Nonetheless, we’re always pleased when our hard work is recognized by others in the industry. Most recently, we’ve added a few more awards to our shelf.

Publisher Award

Awesome Indies-ApprovedFirst, we have to thank the good folks at Awesome Indies for making Evolved Publishing their first outside publisher to receive the Awesome Indies Seal of Approval. As they explain on their website, Awesome Indies has some tough, uncompromising criteria for the awarding of their seal of approval, as explained here. We are pleased to have met their criteria on a consistent basis, thus earning their trust – and their seal of approval – as a publisher. When looking for books that will stand up to your own high standards, you would do well to trust Awesome Indies as a source of recommendations. We’re gratified to be one of those recommendations.

Book Awards

In the past few weeks, a number of our books have achieved special recognition.

Hot_Sinatra_v2_300dpi_200x300 ArthurEllisAwardsFinalistOn April 24th, the big news for us from our neighbors up north was that the Crime Writers of Canada selected Hot Sinatra by Axel Howerton as one of five finalists for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel. Hot Sinatra was chosen with 4 other books from a large field, and whether it ultimately wins the award or not (to be announced at the Arthur Ellis Awards gala dinner on Thursday, June 5, at the Arts & Letters Club in downtown Toronto), we are honored that Mr. Howerton’s book has made the cut.
 
 
NZ_Mammoth_Trouble_v2_300dpi_200x300 Eric-Hoffer-Award-Banner_2014 Awesome Indies-ApprovedIt’s been a big couple of weeks for author D. Robert Pease and Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble, the first book in this middle grade sci-fi adventure series. First came the news that this wonderful book earned an Honorable Mention from the Eric Hoffer Awards 2014, making it one of their TOP 7 books in this vast Juvenile and Young Adult category. Then came the news that Awesome Indies recognized the book with their seal of approval in the Middle Grade category. Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble had already won several prestigious awards before this, but we’re so pleased to add these to its list of accomplishments.
 
 
And then we have the guy hogging up all the awards!

The_Silver_Sphere_v3_300dpi_200x300 National Indie Excellence Book AwardsAuthor Michael Dadich just received his 14th award – that’s right, 14 – for his debut sci-fi/fantasy novel, The Silver Sphere. And why not? This fantasy/science fiction adventure, or sci-fa in the grand Star Wars tradition, has readers and critics alike talking, and once you have 13 awards… well, you naturally want the 14th. 🙂 Well, the folks at the National Indie Excellence Awards have made that happen, recognizing The Silver Sphere as their best in Fantasy for 2014.
 
 
 
We expect to be back soon with more great announcements about honors for our books, but in the meantime, you can keep track of them yourself by stopping in at our Awards Won page from time to time. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy these fun and fantastic books.

[Erotica / Erotic Romance]

This is the first of the erotic romance series of Sugar House Novellas.

After over a decade working in the sex industry, Janice Cane retains no illusions about the nature of relationships. Everyone lies and everyone wants something. Still, a part of her longs for a connection.

Speed-dating becomes her addiction, a place to find a man for the night when she needs a quick fix, and her last hope that true love may still be waiting around the next corner. When a mysterious man entices both her intellect and her lust, she becomes entangled in an affair more complicated than she’d expected.

Enter the world of The Sugar House. Here you’ll meet the illustrious Madam Janice Cane and her brood of men and women who will fulfill your every fantasy. But can they find a way to fulfill their own?

The_Lone_Wolf_300dpi_200x298The Lone Wolf by E.D. Martin
[Literary / Women’s Fiction]

When her husband David’s infidelities are revealed, shattering the perfect life Kasey Sanford thought they’d created together, it’s a wake-up call that she’s lost herself along the way. She demands that David move with her to a new town, to a fresh start for their life together.

Kasey loves the freedom of reinventing herself, including her new friendship with police officer and soldier Andrew Adams. Andrew is handsome and charming, and his interest in Kasey awakens feelings she’d rather have for her husband, who pushes her further away with each of his alcohol-fueled outbursts. Intent on preserving her marriage for the sake of her young daughter, and with no one else to confide in, Kasey turns to Andrew for support.

But Andrew’s own life is falling apart as he’s put on standby for another deployment, triggering painful memories he’d rather ignore. He’ll do anything to forget the soldiers who didn’t return home with him, his stillborn son, and all those he’s disappointed, including God.

As their relationship grows, Kasey must decide if she will repair her marriage and remain with the man she’s always loved, or if she will give up everything she holds dear to save the soul of a man she barely knows, a man who fights her at every step, a man desperate to regain his faith in God, in humanity, and in himself.

This third book in the Noah Zarc science fiction series is ideal for kids as young as 9 and as old as 14, depending on reading level and parental involvement.

As battles rage across the solar system, Noah must work to join together a rag-tag bunch of miners, farmers, and scientists who would rather just live in peace. With only a time-traveling ship full of animals and a general from the history books, the Zarc family has to stand against the full might of the Poligarchy. Will the truth about what really happened a thousand years in the past be enough to stop total war, or will Noah and his friends need to find another way to bring down a dictator?
