Jane Rosenthal’s newest book, Del Rio, is once again in the running for a major book award. With the sheer number of published authors around the world, it’s an honor to be recognized as a stand-out among one’s peers in the writing community. Book awards also provide an excellent opportunity for publicity, helping authors get their book in front of more readers.
The Chanticleer International Book Awards (CIBA’s) recognize emerging new talent and outstanding works in suspense and thriller mysteries. The Chanticleer Clue Book Awards is a division of the CIBA’s for the best books featuring suspense, thrilling adventure, detective work, private eye, police procedural and crime-solving.
Del Rio by Jane Rosenthal has been named to the “long list” in the thriller/suspense fiction novel category of the 2021 Clue Book Awards. All entries were judged and narrowed down to a long list, which then automatically places them in the running for the short list. Semi-finalists and finalists are chosen from there and announced at the annual Chanticleer Authors Conference.
Will Jane win?
The 1st place category winners and the CIBA Division Grand Prize winners will be selected from the 17 CIBA divisions’ finalists. These top awards will be announced at the CIBA’s Banquet and Ceremony, which takes place on April 9th, 2022. The event is being held at the upscale Bellwether in Bellingham, Washington.
To have been selected out of thousands of entries for the long list is already exciting for Jane Rosenthal. Walking up to the dais at the Bellwether to accept a first place prize for Del Rio would be a dream.
