Consistently rated as one of the top Indies book contests in the United States, I'm proud to announce that Off the Hook was awarded an Honorable Mention in the 'Picture Books, Early Reader' category at the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.

The book was previously a Finalist for this award amongst 20 other very strong titles (including one author who has sold over 300,000 books -- whoa!) so I'm extremely excited to see it named an Honorable Mention this past weekend.

Thanks Foreword!

The good folks over at The Book Designers finished the new cover so thought I'd share! 

First the front:

Now the back:

I really love how it turned out and hopefully you do too!

The transition to the new cover is underway as it's been applied to the Kindle version and is currently being proofed on the softcover.  You can still buy the old design on the hardcover version but not for much longer!

The Off the Hook: A Christmas Ornament Adventure award-winning picture book cover is getting a redesign!  

Based on some feedback and my own personal observations of the book on the shelves and online I decided to explore a cover redesign.  My goal was to simplify the design, overhaul the title font, increase the on-shelf and on-line appeal, make it easier to read in the all important thumbnail, and just generally make it more "Christmasy" < is that a word?

With the help of the terrific folks over at BookDesigners.com I think those goals have been achieved and then some!

So while they put the finishing touches on the new cover I want to let whomever may be interested in the original cover (with much love to Richa and her team at Eminence System who did the original cover and fantastic illustrations) to get your orders in soon as I'd say in less than a month it will be a part of Christmas past!
