Local Author receives national recognition through National Indie Excellence Awards

San Francisco, CA — The Sixth Annual National Indie Excellence Awards recognized An Uncertain Age by Ulrica Hume in the category of Literary fiction as a finalist.

This national award, based in Los Angeles, CA is open to all English language books including small presses, university presses, independent publishers and self-published authors. Works published in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 were eligible for consideration.

The competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence of presentation.

An Uncertain Age is about a woman who has lost everything and seeks to reinvent herself. It’s a spiritual mystery, also a love story. The plot unfolds in France, Spain, England, and far-off places around the globe.

“We appreciate you, we applaud you and thank you for your great work. You are contributing to make independent publishing a great sector in the literary community,” said Ellen Reid, President of the National Indie Excellence Book Awards.
