'Why They Stay' a finalist in prestigious British book contest

I'm thrilled to share the news that "Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives" has been named a finalist in the Adult Non-Fiction category by The Wishing Shelf Book Awards.

The Wishing Shelf judges include two sets of reading groups, one in London and one in Stockholm. Entries are scored for editing, theme, style and cover. Books awarded at least 30 of 40 points made the list of finalists.

Winners will be announced April 1, 2018.

The Wishing Shelf contest, begun in 2013, is run by authors and is open to books published independently or by small presses.

Many thanks to founder Edward Hugh Trayer, aka Billy Bob Buttons, for this honor.
