Readers’ Favorite Book Awards 2017
Posted by Jalpa Williby
I have so much to tell you guys! In November, I went to Miami for Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards Ceremony. Both, Fate’s Cry and Fate’s Roar, won Honorable Mention in Romance-Paranormal category. I am grateful to Readers’ Favorite for awarding the books such a prestigious recognition.
I am excited, yet humbled, that all six books I’ve entered so far for awards are now award-winning novels.
Miami was a blast! I swear meeting up with other award-winning authors is the greatest feeling. These guys are talented, inspiring, and are full of amazing wisdom. Here are some pictures from the Meet and Greet and the ceremony itself.
I have more good news! My Perfect Imperfections was a featured book for a university’s book club! Yes, a university! Holy Family University in Pennsylvania discussed My Perfect Imperfections in November. Man, I’m so excited because when I wrote My Perfect Imperfections, I hoped to inspire and raise awareness. To say I was honored that this story was chosen, is an understatement. Here are some pics from the book club at the library from the university.
If anybody wants to purchase an autographed copy of any of my books, please contact me. Christmas is coming, so this may be a fantastic gift for somebody. 🙂
Lastly, I absolutely love photography. I’m really not that great at it, but I did take this pic while hiking in California one day. I liked it, so I decided to use it. I leave you with this final thought. Until next time, lovelies.
About Jalpa WillibyJalpa Williby was born in India and immigrated to the United States at the tender age of eight. A voracious reader, Williby’s adolescence was marked by a promising academic career. After graduating with a Bachelors of Science from the University of Illinois, Williby went on to earn her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University. Her passion for helping her patients led her to a specialty in neuroscience, focusing on children and adults with neurological impairments. For the past 20 years, Williby has worked as a Physical Therapist, a career she loves because she gets to make a difference, “One person at a time!” When she is not working, she enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with her husband and her three children. Juggling her time as a wife, a mother, and working fulltime, her love and passion for books never subsided. Some of her favorite books are A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Twilight Series, and The Hunger Games Trilogy. When asked what inspired her to write her debut novel, Chaysing Dreams, Williby answers simply, “Because I have a story to share.”
