2021 Grand Prize Winners

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards Gala in Washington, D. C. exceeded my expectations. The venue was lovely, and the interaction with other finalists and winners gave me perspectives and ideas I had not considered before. It was a champagne worthy evening. I am honored that my novel, Beloved Mother, won not only the 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Award for First Novel, but also Grand Prize for Fiction.

Having my novel listed in two prominent book catalogues offers publicity I never would have accomplished on my own.

I was deeply honored that my pop-up book, “Amazing Thailand Festivals" was a winner and a finalist in two categories from Next Generation Indie Book Awards. This honor indeed helps with marketing my book and increases credibility. Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort from your wonderful teamwork.
