Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) May 13, 2009 -- 1 Piece of Advice has been named a semifinalist in the Womenâs Issues category by the Independent Book Publishers Association for 2009.
1 Piece of Advice is an inspired and inspiring book written by cousins Patricia Moser-Stern and Barbara Moser that tells the stories of 48 women around the world who have blazed trails in their chosen fields despite the odds. If someone asked you to give a single piece of advice to a daughter, a niece, a cousin, a granddaughter or a colleague, what would you say? Be an astronaut, a bishop, a general, an entrepreneur? In this handsome, beautifully-produced coffee-table entry, there are as many opinions as there are successful women. Women savvy enough to know that you don't crack the glass ceiling by banging your head against the wall.
1 Piece of Advice is published by Patricia Moser-Stern and Barbara Moser, two cousin-authors who themselves are very successful in typically male-dominated fields (one is an aeronautics engineer, the other runs her own supply management and procurement company).
The book can be purchased online at http://www.1pieceofadvice.com where you can browse its contents and read some of the stories of these remarkable women.
More than 4,000 titles were entered in 85 categories in the national and regional contest for independently published authors. The 2009 IPPY Award winners will be announced at the 13th Annual Awards ceremony in New York May 29.
The Independent Book Publishers has been a supporter of the indie book industry for more than a quarter of a century.
