WINNERS OF 2013 INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER AWARDLee Marvin Point Blank won the Bronze in this year’s Independent Publisher Awards competition (“IPPY”). The presentation will be accepted by publisher Tim Schaffner during a ceremony in New York City. Click the link above for the whole story.
Addenda: Below is Schaffner Press publisher Tim Schaffner accepting the award on behalf of yours truly, Lee Marvin Point Blank author, Dwayne Epstein. Don’t worry, folks. I couldn’t make it to the awards in New York but he did indeed send it to me a week or two later. I doubt Mr. Knopf would have done that! Mr. Schaffner is a good Joe.
He also told me that after leaving the award presentation he spotted Robert Osborne walking down the street. I asked him if he thanked Osborne for mentioning our book on the air via Osborne’s hosting duties on TCM (see the photo and quote at the bottom of the ‘Reviews‘ page of this website). Tim told me he didn’t think it appropriate to do so. I told him he could have done it without wearing the medal. Ahh, well…..
