After all these months, a new post! I’ve discovered blogging is a skill not yet developed by this writer. But it seems only fitting to report the recognition Gia-fu’s biography has received. In addition to many kind, thoughtful letters, phone calls, and emails from readers, Still Point of the Turning World: The Life of Gia-fu Feng was winner of a gold medal and a finalist for two other awards.
- ForeWord Reviews’ Book of the Year Award Gold Medal in Biography (click on Biography on this page: http://www.bookoftheyearawards.com/);
- 2010 Indie New Generation Awards, Finalist in General Nonfiction;
- Colorado Authors’ League Top Hand Award, Finalist in General Nonfiction.
What a delight and surprise to watch the book take on a life of its own. But then, perhaps it’s not so surprising given its subject. Thanks to all who have been so responsive and encouraging on this unanticipated leg of the journey. xie xie
