)-- Class Act Books publishing has received two awards in the latest Paranormal Romance Guild's Reviewers Choice competition.
NEBRASKA: Walk the Shadow Trail and When Only the Nightmare Remains garnered First and Second Place awards in this year's contest.
NEBRASKA: Walk the Shadow Trail by Toni V. Sweeney received 1st Place awarding in the Historical Romance category with her Western novel. Set in the Nebraska Territory in the mid-19th century, the novel tells the story of the friendship between an impoverished German nobleman and a halfbreed Pawnee cowboy. Running from his father's crimes, Baron Wilhelm von Brandt is helped to assimilate into life on the Great Plains by Johnny Moon, a ne'er-do-well living just this side of the Law. The well-researched novel details their building a prosperous horse ranch and the tragedy occurring when Will takes a Pawnee woman as his wife.
Though Ms Sweeney's main genre is scifi/fantasy, she has written several western novels which have been well-received by the reading public.
Rick McQuiston's When Only the Nightmare Remains placed 2nd in the Paranormal Horror/Suspense category. The narration recounts a small-town sheriff's fight against supernatural forces resurrected by one man's misguided attempts to gain immortality. Trapped inside a deserted mansion with only three adolescent boys to help him, the sheriff must figure out how to escape so he can protect his town.
Mr. McQuiston has several horror novels published with Class Act Books.
The Paranormal Romance Guild's Reviewers Choice awards are held every year with reviewers for the website choosing the novels they think best represent each genre. Readers are then invited to vote on their selections. The awards are held yearly the last week of December.
