P.E.I. author Patti Larsen's book finalist in Kindle Book Awards
Book entitled Freak Show 1st in a series of 21
Charlottetown author Patti Larsen's book Freak Show is one of the finalists in this year's Kindle Book Awards.
Larsen's first adult paranormal murder mystery is nominated in the mystery-thriller category. It is the first in a series of 21 books called The Nightshade Cases.
The awards are given to self-published books. Semi-finalists were picked based on a book excerpt and an online blurb. But a judge read the whole book for it to end up in the top five, says Larsen.
"This is another really amazing confirmation to me that I'm doing it right, which is fantastic and I'm super happy," said Larsen.
"Even if I don't win, just to make it into the finals category, I mean, there are thousands of entries in this particular award system."
If Freak Show wins, Larsen will receive a prize package of just over $1,000.
Winners will be announced Oct. 1.
In 2014, Larsen also won the international World's Best Story contest for her book Family Magic about a teenage girl whose mother is a witch and father is a demon.
