Fans of Tales from Earth’s End and author will be glad to know that Sandy Nathan has just won the the 2011 IPPY (Independent Publisher) GOLD MEDAL FOR VISIONARY FICTION for her sci-fi /fantasy / visionary fiction novel, The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy. The IPPY Award Contest is one of the largest and oldest competitions for independent presses––in fact, it may be the oldest and largest.

Sandy says, “Winning this award feels very good. It marks almost four years of work by myself and my publishing team at Vilasa Press. I want to thank my content editor, Melanie Rigney; my book designer, Lewis Agell; and Kathy Grow and Kathryn Agrell for copy editing and proofreading assistance. Many thanks also to my husband, Barry Nathan for keeping Vilasa Press organized and moving forward.”

This is the fourteenth national award Sandy Nathan has won with her four books. She has won two Silver Nautilus Awards, and a Bronze and Silver IPPY Award in previous contests. She was a Benjamin Franklin Award Finalist, and has won several Indie Excellence and Best Book (USA Book News) Awards. “It feels good every time. A pat on the back for work well done.”

The Angel is the first book of Tales from Earth’s End, a series of books about people literally at the end of the earth. In the case of The Angel, that “end” was a nuclear holocaust coming the next day. Later books explore new definitions for earth’s extremity. You can find the first chapter of The Angel, videos and other information about the series here at its official blog. Please feel free to leave us a comment!
