Another Gold for A Penny for Your Thoughts

9th Award for Penny

So thrilled to receive the following notification in my email this morning:

Subject: CONGRATULATIONS! – 2018 New Apple Summer eBook Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing

Date: September 4, 2018 at 7:36:47 AM EDT

To: Sherrill S Cannon <>

Your book ‘A Penny for your Thoughts’ was chosen as the solo “Medalist Winner” in the Poetry category of our Summer eBook Awards!

The judging in this competition is unique and worth sharing:  This was at the bottom of the notification page…

Please Note: All entries in our contests, as long as the entry was received in its entirety, are submitted for equal consideration.  Some indie book awards weed out entries looking at only the cover art and tag line, then judge the nominations of those that make the cut forward into the judging round.  New Apple takes a different path.  ALL entries are giving the same complete consideration, which is why the judging takes so long and often runs a week or two behind.  After the dust clears each category receives a solo Medalist Winner.  In some cases, when the judging panel for the category can not come to a unanimous decision for the medalist winner, they will select up to three Official Selections out of all the entries within the category.  These receive honorable mention distinction.”



5 Stars for My Little Angel… Review by Lorilyn Roberts of the John 3:16 Network

My Little Angel – 6 Awards

My Little Angel has just won its 6th Award, a Gold Medal in the Global eBook Awards.  Here is an earlier review by Lorilyn Roberts, Founder of the John 3:16 Network, who wrote a lovely 5-Star Review for My Little Angel.  I’m very happy to share this one again…

“My favorite children’s books are rhyming books, and Sherrill Cannon once again in “My Little Angel” has created a masterpiece. The story is uplifting, the illustrations are beautiful, and it’s one of those books where you feel good all over when you finish it. You want to linger on the words, the message, and read it again and again. The story is biblical, where the young girl has an angel who protects her and helps her throughout the day. Prayer, self-worth, kindness, gratitude, and love are recurring themes and make this a wonderful book to share and read to young children. “My Little Angel” is a great addition to children’s literature and I’m sure it will win many awards in the years to come.”  … …Lorilyn Roberts
