LibraryJournal has announced the results of its 2017 Indie Ebook Awards competition. It is an honor and privilege to be able to say that the Iris Chacon novel, FINDING MIRANDA, is the winner in the Mystery category.
The announcement from LibraryJournal said, in part:
The third annual LJ Indie Ebook Awards has now come to a close. Committees of librarians—plus the authors of some of last year’s winners—volunteered their time to evaluate hundreds of submissions and determine the best ebooks self-publishing has to offer in Sf/Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, and YA. These books—and many others—can be found in SELF-e, a subscription-based digital discovery platform for indie fiction. Congratulations to all of the honorees, including our first-ever overall winner, A Queen from the North.

The official LJ review of FINDING MIRANDA reads as follows:
Chacon, Iris. Finding Miranda. CreateSpace: Amazon.2016. 230p. ebk. ISBN 9781311180315. MYS
Librarian Miranda Ogilvy is the new girl next door in the small town of Minokee, FL, where she hopes to make a home of her late aunt’s cottage. She’s just settled into a routine with the gun-toting, porch-sitting old ladies on her block when blind radio deejay Shep Krausse runs—literally—into her life. However, Miranda isn’t Shep’s only new acquaintance. Beneath Minokee’s quaint exterior is a darker truth. Readers are in for a treat when Miranda and Shep team up against the sinister forces out to off them both, proving that our enemies are closer than we might think. Still, the ample comic relief and romantic scenes help to lighten the load of the novel’s murderous elements.
The many delicious twists and turns provide a wild ride as Miranda and Shep try to prevent chaos from reigning in their neighborhood. Those seeking a perfect balance of cozy mystery, romance, and nail-biting drama should look no further.
