Just wanted to share, since we discussed this book last year. Ann Crispin won an award for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom.

Her first award that recognizes her writing! First place too. :toastingpirates:




The Forward National Literature Award

Forward National Literature (FNL) is a nonprofit independent literary organization dedicated to honoring traditionally published works in eleven categories. As well as garnering attention to its recipients and likely increasing sales, FNL showcases a combination of previously undiscovered and well-known authors based on content, uniqueness, and readability.

    Author: Ann Crispin
    Title: The Price Of Freedom

That's really terrific! :bounce: Ann did a wonderful job with The Price of Freedom and it enjoyed it more than any book I've read in a long time. A well deserved award to be sure. :toastingpirates:

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Well done An,and deservedly so - this was an excellent book, and I rather think you should be considered for writing or co writing the script for the next 'Pirates' film, if there is one! Congrats!

I am so pleased to learn that Ann won the award. Writing a book like TPOF, where she had to follow so many constraints, and still be fresh and creative was a difficult undertaking. The end result was marvelous! :cool:

I noticed on her Facebook page she said this is the first award she has ever received for her writing! Congratulations!

Thank you all so much for the congratulatory words! I am thrilled, and surprised. It's not often a tie-in book (work for hire) gets any recognition. But I worked every bit as hard on that book, as I did many of my original novels!

Thank you again!

:loveshower:
