In the year and a half since its release, The Primal Connection has received both critical and popular recognition, garnering several prestigious awards from esteemed organizations and becoming a best-seller on Amazon.com. I’ve been humbled and honored to see the impact my book has had, and I’m pleased to share the good news with all of you.
Foreword Magazine publishes their IndieFab awards every year to recognize the best independently-published works in the book scene, and this year I was happy to receive the Bronze medal in the Health category.
The Eric Hoffer Project was established at the start of the new millennium as a way to recognize and encourage the “little guys” of the publishing world, the authors and writers and poets who self-publish or work with independent publishers to disseminate their work. In 2013, The Primal Connection received the Eric Hoffer Award for best self-published book – an incredible honor.
Also in 2014, The Primal Connection placed Silver in the Body, Mind & Spirit category of the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards, one of the most highly esteemed honors an independently-published book can receive.
Most recently, the Kindle version of the book reached number 4 on the Kindle Top Ten list, helping me become the 20th most popular author on Amazon – if only for a few days. Of all the awards, this might be the most meaningful, because it means that tens of thousands more people are reading my book, learning from it, and hopefully applying its lessons to the betterment of their own lives. It means that you don’t need a contract with the big publishers to get your thoughts out there and change lives.
