I do consulting and public relations work for Henley-Putnam University in San Jose, California. When I recently won the Silver Medal for Fiction from the Military Writers Society of America, the university promoted it with a great press release. You can find it on PRWeb as well as Yahoo News.
Here’s an excerpt:
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 1, 2009 — Henley-Putnam University Public Relations Officer Mike Angley’s mystery/thriller debut novel, Child Finder, received the Silver Medal in the Fiction category in the 2009 Military Writers Society of America’s Annual Awards program. He will attend the MWSA’s annual conference in Orlando, FL from October 9 – 10 to receive this prestigious honor.
Each year the MWSA judges numerous submissions in several literary categories and selects the best for award of gold and silver medals, with one or two additional runners-up. Angley’s novel received the Silver Medal in the Fiction category for the highly-competitive 2009 MWSA program (http://militarywriters.com/2009Awards.html).
