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.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ideal not just for adults, but also for kids aged 12 and up.

Shelby Pardow never imagined she could kill someone. All she wants to do is hide from her troubled father… when she is teleported to awaiting soldiers on the planet Azimuth. Here she is not a child, but Kin to one of the six Aulic Assembly members whom Malefic Cacoethes has drugged and imprisoned. He seeks to become dictator of this world (and then Earth by proxy).

His father, Biskara, is an evil celestial entity, tracked by the Assembly with an armillary device, The Silver Sphere. With the Assembly now deposed, Biskara directs Malefic and the Nightlanders to their strategic targets. Unless….

Can Shelby find the other Kin, and develop courage and combat skills? Can the Kin reassemble in time to release or replace the Assembly, overthrowing Malefic and restraining Biskara?

Samantha Jean Haggert is a beautiful twelve-year-old girl—but no one knows it. All they see is an awkward boy in a baseball cap and baggy pants. Sam’s not thrilled with the idea of hiding her identity, but it’s all part of her older brother’s plan to keep Sam safe from male attention and hidden from the law. Fifteen-year-old Jacob will stop at nothing to protect his sister, including concealing the death of the one person who should have protected them in the first place—their mother.

Sam and Jacob try to outrun their past by stealing the family car and traveling from West Virginia to Arizona, but the adult world proves mighty difficult to navigate, especially for two kids on their own. Trusting adults has never been an option; no adult has ever given them a good reason. But when Sam meets “Jesus”—who smells an awful lot like a horse—in the park, life takes a different turn. He saved her once, and may be willing to save Sam and her brother again, if only they admit what took place that fateful day in West Virginia. The problem? Sam doesn’t remember, and Jacob isn’t talking.
