Such A Night

2012 CIPA EVVY Award Winners from Filter Press & members of Women Writing the West.

Two other members of Women Writing the West from Filter Press recently shared honors with me at the Colorado Independent Publishers’ Association EVVY Awards Banquet in Lonetree, Colorado. Nancy Oswald took top award for her book, Rescue In Poverty Gulch, as did my book, Baby Doe Tabor: Matchless Silver Queen, which won the EVVY for Best Biography. None of this celebration would have been possible without the TLC administered by Doris Baker of Filter Press for the publication of these two titles, and for hosting our table at the banquet. I am grateful to the Filter folks for their faith in my work and their touches which make my books special. I am also grateful to CIPA for the boost and vote of confidence from these awards, during a time of transition in the industry. To have my book chosen for top honors from the second largest group of entries ever received by CIPA makes it an especially sweet honor and even more precious. I take to heart their advice to use this opportunity wisely, and to move forward with the knowledge that Baby Doe is a special publication.

      Thank you, Mary! I know it is the right place for them. The stone looks great and all is ready. Wish I could pop in to see you, but not this time. So glad I got to visit with you last year. Take care — Joyce
