Hats Off! to Charles "LC" Fiore who was quoted in the article "The Cream of the Crop" on the Independent Book Publishers Association website. "The product matters," Fiore said, offering tips for future IBPA contestants. "Most importantly, comport yourself professionally, from the cover letter, to the supporting materials, to the book itself. Pay attention to details, be courteous, and remember to be grateful. We’re lucky to get to do this stuff." Fiore's novel, The Last Great American Magic, was a Silver Winner in the 29th Annual IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards in the category of Historical Fiction.
