My New Book of Humor and Satire Wins 2017 National Indie Excellence Award

My New Book of Humor and Satire Wins 2017 National Indie Excellence Award

Award-winning novelist receives major recognition as a humorist from the 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards!

The 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards recognized Sol Luckman’s wickedly lighthearted book of satire, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU, as the winner in the category of Humor in this year’s competition.

This prestigious national award, based in Los Angeles, is open to all English language books in print from small, medium, university, independent and self-publishers.

The National Indie Excellence Awards (www.indieexcellence.com) exist to help establish independent publishing as a strong and proud facet of the publishing industry. Recognizing authors that put their heart and soul into their work, the NIEA is proud to be a champion of self-publishers and small and independent presses that go the extra mile to produce books of excellence in every aspect. Awarded since 2007, the NIEA competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the indie book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers, and professional copywriters.

Winners are determined based on “overall excellence of presentation in addition to the writing.” THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY is a satirical lexicon for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called), and life (such as it is).

Taking a page from Ambrose Bierce’s satirical masterpiece, THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it. Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!

Review copies and interviews are available upon request.

Previously, Sol Luckman’s critically acclaimed spiritual adventure novel, SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, won the 9th Annual 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction. Luckman is also known for his bestselling nonfiction books, CONSCIOUS HEALING and POTENTIATE YOUR DNA, which explore the role of consciousness and DNA in personal healing and transformation.

And depression grounded
While taking visionary flight
And embodying to transmit

If youve been following my work for any length of time, you probably already know that this blogger is also a visual artist and novelist. Regarding these related passions of mine, today Ive got so much exciting publishing news to share I hardly know where to begin.

For starters, my original ink-on-paper painting, MESA, CANYON, RIO, is featured on the cover of Professor Itzhak Beerys #1 New Release published by Destiny Books, THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM: VISIONARY POWER, AYAHUASCA & JOURNEYS TO OTHER REALMS.

I havent actually had the opportunity to read the text yet. But since the book is being put out by a respected publisher, is ostensibly my cup of tea and boasts a foreword by John Perkins, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the hard-hitting CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN, Im very much looking forward to diving in.

Another painting of mine, which Ill disclose at a later date, will be the cover image for Beerys follow-up anthology to THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM.

Even as this book is about to hit stores, yet another of my paintings is set to be on the cover of a new book on Gnosticism and astrology scheduled for release in the near future. Stay tuned for updates.

That makes a total of four of my original artworks on book covers, including one of my favorite pieces, DREAMCATCHER, which I used for my bestselling coming-of-age story about lucid dreams, astral projection and much more, SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING.

Speaking of, Im thrilled to be in the process of serializingfor FREEthe audiobook of this epic adventure in consciousness that has been likened to a new CELESTINE PROPHECY and also has some affinities to THE RINGING CEDARS OF RUSSIA. Just follow the link below to start listening to yours truly reading SNOOZE from the beginning.

https://snooze2awaken.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/listen-free-to-the-audiobook-of-the-bestselling-snooze-a-story-of-awakening/

In the words of Lance White, author of TALES OF A ZANY MYSTIC, SNOOZE is a multi-dimensional, many-faceted gem of a read. From mysteries to metaphysics, entering the dream world, Bigfoot, high magic and daring feats of courage, this book has it all I highly recommend [Snooze] for all ages.

Thanks for readingand sweet dreams!
