Silver Falchion Award Success Story – Dana Chamblee Carpenter

Dana Chamblee Carpenter

When The Devil’s Bible won Killer Nashville’s Silver Falchion for Best Novel in 2018, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. Having a group of your peers affirm your work gives you the kind of confidence boosts that lasts—even in those darker times of self-doubt when it’s just you and your computer. But there were more tangible benefits, too. The award came at just the right time to draw extra attention to the release of The Devil’s Bible trade paperback, and we were also able to use the Silver Falchion win as promotion at the launch of Book of the Just. For some readers trying to decide what to add to their TBR pile, seeing the validation of an award win gives them the last nudge they need to buy your book.
