By January 15, 2018, it was official, author Kevin Eads had won the Best Author of the World Award from Paranormal Society World. He was nominated by Allison Ford for the most competitive of 16 categories on the Paranormal Society Worlds website. Even with a series of successful titles including Fountain of Blood, True Legends, and Eerie America, Kevin knew Paranormal Road Trip was up against some stiff competition.
Nominations for the Paranormal Society Awards were due by August 1st 2017. Voting was open from November 4th to December 18th with the results delivered between January 8th and 15th. With 886 votes hanging in the balance, a total of 6 nominees included Paranormal Investigator’s Journal by Ashley Knibb (6.2%) and The Life of a Scottish Ghosthunter by David Barrett (37.8%), but Paranormal Road Trip scared them away with 49.3% of the votes.

If you’re an author, not self-publishing, finding the right home for your work is essential. It’s also a long and sometimes difficult journey.
