NEWSLETTER TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 2017 – “What an Honor!”
Greetings! “Foliage,” my debut novel that shines a spotlight on the banking world has won another award!
‘Foliage: An International Banking Spy Thriller’ was chosen as the solo “Medalist Winner” in the Historical Fiction category by 2016 New Apple Annual Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing!
Oh lord help me, I haven’t posted a newsletter since December. But it’s not for lack of writing. Words are being typed as fast as my little fingers can fly across the keyboard. Yes, best marketing practices dictate at least one newsletter should go out per month. Minimum! But, truth be told, I only like to write when I have something to say.
Well, ‘Foliage’ has received another literary award, so there’s that. According to New Apple, “Web designers are still in the midst of putting together all postings for online announcements at NewAppleLiterary.com and are hoping to see it go live by the end of the week. Throughout the coming months, New Apple will roll out the prizes associated with the awards including press releases, tweet blasting, banner advertising, awards certificates and both digital and foil medallions to place on your book covers.”
Very cool. That gives Louise Moscow three awards in independent publishing and an Editor’s pick in the Summer 2016 edition of the awesome Discover Hollywood Magazine. What an honor and much needed encouragement as I close in on the first draft of Book Two of the Louise Moscow series. 55K words and counting!
Other than that, I’ll use the remainder of this newsletter to shout out some amazing things my friends have accomplished in the art world:
Since I serve on the Advisory Board of The Theater School at DePaul University, I must brag about their latest news. First, Congratulations, DePaul University Alum and Chicago playwright Ike Holter who won the $165,000 Windham-Campbell literary prize awarded annually to writers of poetry, fiction and drama by Yale University. If that is not impressive enough, congratulations to DePaul University alumnus Tarell Alvin McCraney on his Oscar wins for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay for the film MOONLIGHT. The Theatre School community could not be more proud. Last but not least, I’m so excited to have scored tickets to World
Premiere of Building the Wall — The newest play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (Hacksaw Ridge, The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way), directed by award-winning Michael Michetti. Produced by Simon Levy, Stephen Sachs, Deborah Lawlor. The Fountain is amazing so if you haven’t already been I highly recommend going to any of their productions.
Well, back to writing my latest Louise Moscow novel. It is a fun thriller and I can’t wait to announce the title soon! It has been a learning process and it’s still a work in progress, but I’m thrilled with my NEW WEBSITE! It is now my official author website LorraineEvanoff.com LouiseMoscowNovel.com also links to the same site.
Let me know what you think of the new website!
Praise for Foliage: An International Banking Spy Thriller – NEW REVIEWS!
“First Rate Financial Thriller, this is an exciting novel written in the “Stephen Frey” class of thrillers. It is refreshing to have a female protagonist who is intuitive and intelligent. I can’t wait for the nextLouise Moscow adventure” – By Max B. January 24, 2017
