Three books which use RMK Publications services received awards in this year’s New Mexico Press Women’s Annual Contest. This contest attracts hundreds of authors each year, so to receive any recognition at all is a big feather in an author’s cap.
Taking 1st Place in the Nonfiction Book: Biography or History category was Margaret Abbey (Ashman) Shannon‘s recounting of her family’s history dating back to the 1400’s in Northhampton, England and following them through their voyage to America in the early 1600’s. In addition to her family’s adventures, Margaret includes details of the daily life and customs predominant in that era. As first place winner, Margaret’s book will be forwarded to the National Press Women’s Competition.
Alan Diehl‘s newly release alternate history novel Kidnap Marilyn took 3rd Place in the Novel Category. It offers both a story and some hard information about the events surrounding the death of superstar Marilyn Monroe.
Kat-Richter Sand‘s memoir about how she trained her beloved whippet, Abbey, to become a diabetic alert dog received an Honorable Mention in the Autobiography or Memoir Category. Sometimes the Dog is Smarter is an inspiration to anyone who strives to maintain their health and emotional balance.
