    The Eagle and the Dragon MWA Book of the Year Award

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Lew, Mar 26, 2018.

    I was totally surprised this weekend. At the annual Maryland Writers' Association meeting in Linthicum the Eagle and the Dragon received the Historical Fiction Book of the Year Award, out of about ten in that genre and forty overall.

    Thanks to all on this site for your encouragement and help in bringing this book to life!

    I think the eLit award is a bit of a come-on. The Jenkins group does not appear to have a good reputation, but at least it appeared good enough to attempt to please me
