Conversations on the Bench by Award-Winning Mystery Author Digger Cartwright Wins USA Regional Excellence Book Award

Orlando, FL, Miami, FL, & Myrtle Beach, SC  March 7, 2016—The office of award-winning mystery author Digger Cartwright is pleased to announce that Conversations on the Bench won 1st place in the self-help category for the Southeast region in the 2nd Annual USA Regional Excellence Book Awards.  This is the second year that The Conversations on the Bench has won a USA REBA award.  In 2015, Conversations on the Bench won 1st place in the memoir category.


Mr. Cartwright issued the following statement:


“I’m honored that Conversations on the Bench has won its second REBA.  As I’ve said many times in the past, this book offers something for everyone; Sebastian’s life lessons are timeless.  I’m glad that we’re able to share a bit of his wit and wisdom with readers of all ages and all walks of life.  This is a very meaningful award, and I’d like to accept this recognition in honor of Sebastian and Robbie; without their story, this book wouldn’t have been possible.


I’d like to thank the judges and Ellen Reid, the founder and president of the USA Regional Book Awards.  This competition does so much for the indie author community.  Without this competition and others like it, indie authors wouldn’t have the opportunity to showcase our works and validate our writing efforts.  We need this in an increasingly competitive world where the mainstream publishing industry looks down its nose on the indie author community.  Thank you again.”
