Pequot Lakes author Candace Simar won the Spur Award for her novel, “Birdie,” in the juvenile fiction category.

Western Writers of America (WWA) announces winners and finalists in 16 categories. They will be honored June 12-16 at the WWA Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Since 1953, WWA has promoted and honored the best in Western literature with the annual Spur Awards, selected by panels of judges. Awards, for material published last year, are given for works whose inspiration, image and literary excellence best represent the reality and spirit of the American West.

Simar’s “Birdie” was published by North Star Press of St. Cloud in 2011. The novel is the third book in the Abercrombie Trail Series.

Some Nice Words

“When I needed a publicist to help promote my book, The Lily of the West, I found there were quite a few available, but upon discovering the highly recommended  Krista Rolfzen Soukup and Blue Cottage Agency, there was no need to look further. Krista is reliable, creative, ethical and well connected. She personifies that elusive quality of being a straight-shooter who is kind and non-judgmental. She’s been a tremendous help to me and I can’t recommend her highly enough. Simply the best.”
