‘The Oil Man’ won an Honorable Mention “Award” at the Great Southeast Book Festival on February 28th 2013, placed 16th out of hundreds that were entered.
And now from the author himself:
I had the opportunity to enter one contest that I could afford, it was the “Great Southeastern Book Festival held in Louisiana. I entered my recent book, “THE OIL MAN” an Action/Adventure about oil workers and a small piece of crystal that changed their lives. The characters had to fight to keep from being shot; they even had a gunfight in the Empire State building in New York City! I did not expect anything with the book but out of over 1,000 entries, I obtained an “Honorable Mention” AWARD! I actually ranked 16th out of that number and was very surprised and happy because now I can call myself an “Award Winning Author” even if it was an Honorable Mention, it won an Award and that is a step in the right direction for “THE OIL MAN”! I will be entering other contests when I can afford them. Got to the Facebook page of “THE OIL MAN” and leave a comment, you can also go to www.leonsbooks.com to see excerpts of the book.
