)-- Stargazer Literary Prizes has announced these three finalists that have been shortlisted for its annual prize competition.
Tantric Coconuts by New York Times bestselling author Greg Kincaid is a finalist in the Visionary & Metaphysical Fiction category. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance meets Life of Pi in this quirky spiritual journey across the wild highways and byways of America.
The Universe Builders: Bernie and the Putty by Steve LeBel was also named a finalist in the Visionary & Metaphysical Fiction category. This story dives into a humorous fantasy world unlike anything you have imagined—a world of gods and goddesses who build universes for a living. It’s a fascinating tale of good vs. evil and a young hero on a journey of self-discovery.
Compass by Jennifer Gibson is a finalist in the Young Adult category. The book follows the life of a girl who is hearing impaired. Life for Jessie is a juggling act, learning to be happy and whole in a world of persistent antagonists and obstacles impeding her path towards a “normal life.”
These three finalists received awards for their achievements and have been added to their category’s shortlist. Each category has one Prize Winner that will be announced in October 2015.
