(I was not aware of Contests and Awards when my first two books were published. In my first submission to the Readers’ Favorite Awards in 2011, I entered The Magic Word, Santa’s Birthday Gift and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys at the same time and won Gold, Silver and Bronze respectively at the same time! Now THAT was fun!!!)

I recommend entering awards to all new authors, since winning awards gives instant credibility to books by new or unknown authors – not to mention ones that have been releasing books for a relatively long time. Some of them also have categories which accept books written in past years, so it may not be too late to enter!  I hope that the above lists of awards will also give some of you an idea of which awards I have entered and consider reputable!

All of my books have been published by SBPRA, and have been illustrated by the amazing and talented Kalpart Illustrations which have brought my books to life and contributed to their awards!!

“One more excellent children’s book from Cannon. Not overly religious, but touching in its message of how children can be aware of the impact of their words and actions. Another one of my kids’ favorites for bedtime!”
Thank you Kimber…
