On August 19th, Richard “Ric” Coady’s book, “The Maya Papyrus,” was awarded top honors by the 2013 Global Ebook Awards for the category of Historical Literature Fiction – Ancient, set before 500 AD. The result of 13 years of writing and research, including collaborating with an Egyptologist to confirm the accuracy of the story, “The Maya Papyrus” is a political thriller detailing war and adventure as the protagonist Aye rises to power. Coady spoke with us recently about the Global Ebook Awards and he shared a glowing review of the process.
“The accuracy of the book was critical to its success as it directly impacts the readability of the text,” said Coady. “I was pleased to see that the judges of the Global Ebook Awards are experts in the area and would appreciate my dedication to keeping the story as true to life as possible across the lifespans of several kings. I am excited to see the positive reviews from readers online and was ecstatic to hear that I had won the Gold Award.”
