Open to all small presses, mid-size independent publishers, university presses, and self-published authors, the National Indie Excellence Awards recognizes outstanding authors and publishers who put their heart and soul into their work. Established in 2007, the annual competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the industry including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. Winners and finalists are determined based on overall excellence of presentation in addition to the writing.
Part of the 5-star Grief Diaries book series created by international bestselling author and bereaved mother Lynda Cheldelin Fell, Surviving Loss by Suicide is a nonfiction anthology dedicated to raising awareness and offering comfort by sharing true stories about survival in the aftermath of losing a loved one to suicide.
“Over forty thousand Americans die by suicide every year, with untold more around the world; each one results in a life sentence of heartbreak for family and friends. While each loss is as unique as one’s own fingerprint, and grief tools aren’t one size fits all, it’s important to know you are not alone,” states Cheldelin Fell.
