Our book, Triumph Over Terror, has been in two book contests (Best Books, 2017 and Readers’ Choice, 2017), and we have placed 2nd in each one (in nonfiction category) after books about dogs.

I love dogs. Our family always had dogs as we were growing up, and I had one when I was a young adult. They are great companions who cheer up people on their worst days and add further joy on good days. Dogs give unconditional love. Dogs are heroes in their own right.

Now we are in our third contest, The Christian Indie Awards (Christian Small Publishers Association), and sure enough, there is a dog book in our Nonfiction-Biography category!

Please help us honor our American heroes by making our book, Triumph Over Terror, a first place winner.

Category:  NonFiction: BIOGRAPHY

Triumph Over Terror is about our American heroes who worked to clear the rubble after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. Their stories will touch your heart and remind you that our country is great because of those brave service providers who worked under the most dreadful conditions to restore hope to New York City and to all Americans. Many of them suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

    Dog books are great favorites with readers. In two book contests, dog books have taken first place. Our book, Triumph Over Terror, has taken second place. For this third contest, Christian Indie Awards, we would love to see our book take first place. With your help we can. Thanks.
