San Diego, CA, July 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- San Diego author C. L. Hoang receives recognition for his debut Vietnam novel "Once Upon a Mulberry Field," published in February this year by Willow Stream Publishing.
The Third Annual LuckyCinda Book Contest recognized "Once Upon a Mulberry Field" by C. L. Hoang as the Grand Prize Winner in Fiction.
The contest, based in Palm Desert, California, was open to all English language books published by small presses and independent authors. The competition was judged by a panel of journalists, book editors, and authors, who considered plot, quality of writing, copy flow, and overall look of each entry including cover and back cover description.
Set at Bien-Hoa Air Base near Saigon in 1967, the height of the Vietnam War and the Tet Offensive, as well as decades afterward, "Once Upon a Mulberry Field" follows one man's journey of self-discovery, fraught with disillusionment and despair but ultimately redeemed by the power of love.
Prior to being chosen the Grand Prize Winner of the 2014 LuckyCinda Book Contest, "Once Upon a Mulberry Field" had also been named a Finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Book Awards for Historical Fiction.
