I’m delighted the Hollywood Book Festival has just made Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History a Finalist (Biography / Autobiography Category) in their 2010 Book Contest. This is now the second honor my paperback has received. Actually, my book was one of the runners-up to the overall winner of the entire contest, which I believe is quite impressive.
Here’s the overall results in my category according to their press release:
