About 1,000 authors and publishers participated in the Eric Hoffer Book Award this year. The Chinese Dream has endured rigorous judging and received the highest distinction of Eric Hoffer Book Award in the business book category.
There are fourteen categories under the Eric Hoffer Book Award, including fiction, poetry, memoir, and so on.
According to the letter I received from The Eric Hoffer Award, "each winner was determined to be unique, worthy, and well produced in all aspects of writing and publishing."
I am excited to announce that my book The Chinese Dream has won The First Horizon Award. This award is given by the Eric Hoffer Award for books each year to recognize superior work by debut authors.
About 250 first-time authors participated in the contest. Thirty-five people entered as finalists. Among them, five authors won the award. I am honored to be one of the five winners.
The Eric Hoffer Award is established to honor excellence in independent publishers such as academic, small press and self-published authors. For more information about The Eric Hoffer Award for books, please visit here.
