Florida Author Receives National Recognition

Lake Buena Vista, FL (7/31/2021) – The Annual 2021 Florida Authors and Publishers Association President’s BookAwards recognized Dustfall by E. S. Martell, in the category of Adult Science Fiction, as a medal winner.

Hosted by the Florida Authors and Publishers Association, this prestigious national award is open to books published between 2019 and 2021. The judges for this national competition are librarians, educators, and publishing professionals.

“The FAPA President’s Book Award exists to promote excellence in the publishing industry by recognizing talented contemporary authors who put both heart and soul into their work. FAPA is proud to be a champion of authors and publishers going the extra mile to produce books of excellence in every aspect,” said Pat Stanford, Past President of FAPA.

Dustfall is an Adult Science Fiction novel, published by Second Initiative Press, which has an apocalyptic setting. Here is a brief description:

Interstellar dust is falling all over Earth, and humans are mutating into monsters. Raf can barely get enough food, and finding romance is the last thing in his mind. Then she shows up, and life suddenly isn’t worth living without her.

Now he wants her, she wants him, and the mutants want both of them – to eat!

The alien dust has begun to free the monsters hidden in Earth’s life forms, but will the two survive when the deadliest creature appears?

“We are proud to announce this year’s winners who truly embody the excellence this award was created to celebrate. Their works are representative of creative storytelling, bold concepts, and innovative ideas which make the President’s Book Awards so well respected by librarians and those in the publishing industry. We salute all of our winners for their fine work.” said FAPA’s President, Renee Garrison.
