Award-Winning Science Fiction Novel: Queen & Commander

The IPPY awards officially announced their winners today, and Queen & Commander won a silver medal for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror E-Book.

Basically, I said “ohmigod” a lot and jumped in literal circles in my office building’s kitchen. (People in said kitchen watched in curious horror.)


Queen & Commander won a silver medal in the 2013 IPPY awards.

A bit about the IPPY awards

The “IPPY” Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers. Established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents, over 3,000 “IPPYs” have been awarded to authors and publishers around the world.
