Stamford, CT, November 28, 2013 -- Local author, Myrlande E. Sauveur was named a bronze Medal winner in the Readers' Favorite 2013 International Award Contest for her first book, Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul: feed your soul as you feed your body every day.
Contestants from around the world, ranging from first-time authors to New York Times bestsellers and celebrities compete for this annual award. With almost 100 entries in each category with 4 winners chosen, 3 medalists and one honorary mention.
Myrlande E. Sauveur attended the Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Ceremony in Miami this past weekend along with other medalists and finalists from around the world including Eriq LaSalle, best known for his portrayal of Dr. Peter Benton on the TV show E.R, Dete Meserve, president of Wind Dancer films (TV shows like Home Improvement and movies like What Women Want with Mel Gibson) and many more. The ceremony took place at the Regency Hotel by the Miami Airport during the week of the Miami International Book Fair, the largest book fair in the nation.
Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul is more than just a book. It’s a complete spiritual guide that promises to become one of the pivotal faith-based texts of its time. The book is different from other devotional books in the market because Ms. Sauveur “used her own personal experience as a backdrop to write about overcoming emotional baggage; baggage that people from all backgrounds and ages face on a daily basis” says Anne Jecrois, an amazon reviewer.
Joy Hannabass for Readers’ Favorite agrees with a 5 star and says “What makes this devotional book unique is that Ms. Sauveur gives one devotion each month, and then a verse for each day of the month to get along with the devotion. Everything is very well-organized, making the devotions easy to follow. I have a lot of devotional books, but this one is different from the rest. I really like having one topic to focus on each month, and then have a different verse to go with it. There are twelve different topics to focus on, like waiting on God, anger, God’s love, dealing with depression, and God’s plan for our lives. All twelve topics focus on issues that we all face in our everyday Christian life, and even though most of these things I have read about before, the author explains those things in her own unique way, giving us deep insight into the subject. Ms. Sauveur has discovered a very clever way to give our souls that daily dose of spiritual vitamins”.
Daily Spiritual Vitamins and Minerals for Your Soul, published by Outskirts Press, is available on all the major online book retailers such as amazon.com, barnesandnobles.com and through outskirtpress.com for buying in bulk.
