Dear Friends of Here on the Edge,
I am thrilled to announce that Here on the Edge has been named a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, the prestigious award given annually to one book each in fiction and nonfiction. This is an incredible honor that brings international recognition — and a $10,000 cash award to each winner of the prize. Winners should be announced in late September.
Most finalists for this award come from major New York commercial publishing houses. Here on the Edge is the first-ever finalist published by a university press (who traditionally run on shoestring budgets with a small staff).

Feel free to pass this on to your friends, post on social media, invite your network to “like” my Facebook page, or otherwise spread the word.
Thanks to everyone for your wonderful support through the years of writing and now promotion. The story continues!
All my best,
Congratulations, Steve! I’m so happy to hear this news. As a member of the Church of the Brethren doing my own research and writing from the same basic time period, I appreciate your dedication to this project. Accolades are well deserved.
