Epic announces 2004 Eppie Finalist

(PRWEB) January 15, 2004

The Electronically Published Internet Connection (EPIC) is proud to announce the finalists for the fifth annual EPPIE Awards. Historical romance author, Cornelia Amiri’s Celtic/Saxon romance, One Heart One Way, is among the finalist. These awards, which honor the finest electronically published books of the year, will be presented on March 13 in Oklahoma City as part of EPICon 2004.

“For an e-author, no other award is more sought after or carries more prestige than the EPPIE,” said EPIC president Dusty Rhodes. “It is the ultimate recognition by one’s peers for outstanding achievement in the electronic publishing industry. And as the e-publishing industry grows and continues to gain recognition, so will the EPPIE.”

“Once again we’ve topped the number of entries from the previous year,” said Betty Kasischke, who has been the contest coordinator since its inception. “The awards are growing more and more popular, and the quality of the entries just keeps getting better. Our judges had some amazingly difficult decisions to make.”

Awards are given in twenty-one categories. In addition, each year EPIC presents the Quasar Awards for superior achievement in cover art, along with the newly renamed Patricia White Service Award to one individual who has made an extraordinary contribution to EPIC.

EPICon 2004 will take place March 12-14. Registration is open to anybody with an interest in electronic publishing, and the complete list of conference activities (which includes workshops, panel discussions, and a group booksigning) is available at http://www.epic-conference.com.For more information on EPIC and EPICon, please visit http://www.epicauthors.org.
