So, my latest novel has now won 3 awards: the 2018 multi-cultural fiction finalist, from the Book Excellence Awards, the same from the 2017 Best Book awards, and the Pinnacle Award for Historical Fiction in 2016.
I recently talked with a play director/writer, who said she had the same 'problem': "My work wins awards, but isn't selling." Is this an indication that we don't play by the formula rules, but have something worthy to say? or is it that them what gives awards are out of touch with what the Consumer wants? Only time will tell.
