Where's MY Book? is a Finalist in the Benjamin Franklin Book Awards Competition!

"A Better Vantage" is one of many of Jacqui Beck's
paintings featured in "Where's MY Book?"

Where's MY Book? A Guide for Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Youth, Their Parents, & Everyone Else has been named a finalist in the 28th Annual Benjamin Franklin Book Awards Competition held by the Independent Book Publishers Association. The book was honored in the category of Teen Non-Fiction.
The national competition honors authors in fifty categories. It  is considered one of the highest awards in independent publishing.
Awards will be announced April 8 at the IBPA's Publishing University in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Why is this important to me? It's a great honor for an independent author! But more importantly, this helps to call attention to the important issues faced by transgender youth.
Take care,
