San Diego author C. L. Hoang receives national recognition for his debut Vietnam novel "Once Upon a Mulberry Field," published in February this year by Willow Stream Publishing.
The Eighth Annual National Indie Excellence Awards recognized Once Upon a Mulberry Field by C. L. Hoang in the category of Historical Fiction as a finalist.
This national award, based in Los Angeles, California is open to all English language books in print, including small presses, mid-size independent publishers, university presses, and self-published authors. The competition is judged by independent experts from all aspects of the book industry-publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers, and professional copywriters.
The Indie Excellence Winners & Finalists recognize the books that demonstrate an indefinable synergy of elements that makes for overall excellence.
Set at Bien-Hoa Air Base near Saigon in 1967, the height of the Vietnam War and the Tet Offensive, as well as decades afterward, Once Upon a Mulberry Field follows one man's journey of self-discovery, fraught with disillusionment and despair but ultimately redeemed by the power of love.
"We are so proud to announce the winners," said awards sponsor Ellen Reid. "These books will be a favorite on bookshelves for years and years to come."
Prior to publication in February this year, Once Upon a Mulberry Field had also been selected as a finalist in the 2012 San Diego Book Awards for Unpublished Novel.
