Intl Book Awards



Mainstream & Independent Titles Score Top Honors in

the 5th Annual International Book Awards


LOS ANGELES  –  American Book Fest announced the winners and finalists of THE 2014 INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS (IBA) on May 21, 2014. Over 300 winners and finalists were announced in over 80 categories. Awards were presented for titles published in 2012, 2013 and 2014.


Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest, said this year’s contest yielded over 1200 entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results.


In the category of Short Stories local publisher Glendower Media, of Whitmore Lake, Michigan, has been named a Finalist for the book “The Portable Richard Harding Davis.”  This group of stories was written before World War I by the man who was the first embedded reporter in an army unit during the Spanish American War. His experiences and the people he met became the basis for a series of stories that were hugely popular in those simpler times.  The “American Knight”, doing the right thing was his theme and he won the hearts of many readers throughout the world.  His work was eclipsed after WWI as he died early in the action while covering battles in Europe.  “The Portable Richard Harding Davis” can be gotten at the website

Keen says of the awards, “The 2014 results represent a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array of publishers throughout the world. With a full publicity and marketing campaign promoting the results of IBA, this year’s winners and finalists will gain additional media coverage for the summer season.”


Keen adds, “IBA’s success begins with the enthusiastic participation of authors and publishers and continues with our distinguished panel of industry judges who bring to the table their extensive editorial, PR, marketing, and design expertise.”
