4th Eye Witness Book Honored with National Book Award


From the press release:

LOS ANGELES - USABookNews.com, the premiere online magazine and review website for mainstream and independent publishing houses, announced the winners and finalists of THE “BEST BOOKS 2010″ AWARDS (BBA) on October 26, 2010.   Robert James Luedke’s, Eye Witness: Unknown God, has been honored as the winning entry in category of…Fiction & Literature: Graphic Novels.

This is the second time the Eye Witness series has been honored by the BBA (the third book in the series, Eye Witness: Rise of the Apostle, also captured this prestigious award in 2009) and the fourth national book award for Luedke’s groundbreaking series.

“As an independent publisher it’s been a constant challenge to draw attention to our work,” stated Luedke, “so awards like the BBA…which acknowledges the work of smaller publishers along side the big boys…is a valuable tool for drawing the attention of those who may not run across Eye Witness otherwise.”

Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of USABookNews.com , says of the awards (now in their eighth year) that they represent a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array of publishers throughout the United States.  Winners and finalists traversed the publishing landscape: Simon & Schuster, Penguin/Putnum, Rodale, McGraw-Hill, John Wiley & Sons, Moody Publishers, American Cancer Society, Sourcebooks & hundreds of independent houses contributed to this year’s outstanding BBA competition.

USABookNews.com is an online publication providing coverage for books from mainstream and independent publishers to the world online community. A complete list of the winners and finalists of the USABookNews.com National “Best Books 2010″ Awards are available online at http://www.USABookNews.com.

The Eye Witness slipcase collection (which collects all four books in the series) will be available through book and comic stores nationwide the week of November 15th (as well as most major retailer’s online stores).  There will be a limited edition of 200 sets signed and numbered by Luedke and only be available at his personal appearances, through the Head Press website and through retailers who purchase directly from Head Press Publishing.  For more information, visit: www.HeadPress.info
