USA Best Book Awards Finalist!

Jessica James Civil War novel a finalist in USA BEST BOOK AWARDS
I'm pleased to announce that my new Civil War novel Above and Beyond was a Finalist in the 2013 USA BEST BOOK AWARDS contest in the Fiction/Religious category!

Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of USA Book News, said this year’s contest yielded more than 1,500 entries from mainstream and independent publishers.

Major publishing houses that participated include St. Martin’s Press, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, John Wiley & Sons, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Hay House, and Llewellyn Worldwide.

I'm really happy that this novel was recognized, especially with so much great competition from big publishers. Many thanks to all of my readers!
