2020: “The Very Best!” First Book Winners!

The “Best First Book” award goes to the first published book by an author. It can be either fiction or non-fiction. In their book, the author has demonstrated that their debut book is not a “one-off”. Indeed, the writing should be so good that the reader is eagerly anticipating their next effort. Here are the three winners for 2020:

  • GOLD: Blindshot by Denis Coupal (Fiction, Linda Leith Publishing))
  • SILVER: The Imperilled Ocean by Laura Trethewey (Non-Fiction, Goose Lane Publishing)
