‘Mindy’s Musings’ Wins Coveted Royal Dragonfly Book Award

CHANDLER, AZ (December 3, 2012) – The judges of the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in literature, have spoken, and Mindy’s Musings by Mindy Levy, won Honorable Mention in the Humor category.

“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a 1st or 2nd place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”

Mindy’s Musings is a collection of the author’s real life experiences stemming from every day encounters with family, friends and colleagues. These seemingly mundane events are anything but boring! It retails for $9.95 in paperback and $5.99 in ebook format.  Mindy’s Musings can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble (and BN.com), Smashwords, and Goodreads.com.  Additional information can be found on the author’s website, www.mindylevy.com.
