They understand what his “secret gift” really is…but will Phil ever know the truth? And just who will be the one who finally accepts him for who he is?

Help Support the Awards

One of the reasons I run the awards is as a way to help support other authors as well as cover artists and trailer producers. However I also view is a partial alternative to traditional promotion methods. I choose to put my time into helping others rather than just helping myself but as an author I http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifstill need to raise awareness.

I just wanted to pass along this great review from Long and Short Rhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifeviews for my novel, The Gender Divide.

http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/gender-divide-by-david-boultbee.html

If you are a science fiction / romance fan or know one, check out The Gender Divide or my novella Venus Inferno. Both are available for the Kindle, as well as a variety of other ebook formats.

Cheers and thanks
