Genealogical research often leads to writing and publishing memoirs. Today on All Things Fulfilling we will feature 2015 EVVY award-winning memoirs. These publications were independently published and were entered into the 21st annual book award contest sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association(CIPA).
Here are this year’s award recipients in the autobiography/memoir category:
1st Place – Not in the Pink by Tina Martel
2nd Place – Goat Lips by Matthew Taylor
3rd Place – Song of the Mountains: My Pilgrammage to Maa Ganga by Shaku Rajagopal
3rd Place – Zero to Sixty by Bruce Allen MacMullen
Merit Award – K for Katmandu by Cynthia T Kennedy
Merit Award – Peeling Back the Layers: A Story of Trauma, Grace & Triumph by LaWayne Childrey
Penning a book about one’s life story can be heart-wrenching or joyous and fraught with human fraility. Sometimes terms like revealing and cathartic, might be appropriate when one bares ones soul through the written word. Some stories take more courage to tell than others.
Today, I’d like to congratulate this group of award-winning authors because as a 2014 EVVY award-winning author, I know first-hand the personal fulfillment that comes with writing a publication that is autobiographical in nature. To see the full list of categories in the contest and the other award-winning authors and their publishers.
See you back here tomorrow on All Things Fulfilling. This blog is brought to you by EVVY award-winning memorist, Sue Batton Leonard.
