The Ben Franklin Award is regarded as one of the highest national honors in small and independent publishing. David Kokernot won silver for biography for 2012, announced in May, 2013.
This award is especially competitive because the judges—who are other publishers, librarians, bookstore owners, reviewers, and designers—rank entrants for both editorial content and book design. My thanks go to my editor, Kathy Carter, and my book designer, Fiona Raven. The quality of their work shows throughout.
Working with Fiona was a pleasure. She worked through multiple iterations of my cover, skillfully using some of my suggestions, modifying others. She has an excellent eye for design, and the result shows in the cover you see here. I recommend her highly!
