Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) February 10, 2009 -- EveryDay Life by MG Hardie is a journey from hopelessness to hope. It is a raw, intensely humorous, personal and inspiring look at the journey of a young African-American man who against the odds and his environment decides to change his life for the better. The Reader Views annual awards were established to honor writers who self-published or had their books published by a small press, university press, or independent book publisher and is one of the largest annual awards for small press books. The complete list of winners [http://readerviews.com/Awards2008Winners.html]
âOur Annual Literary Awards recognize the very best of these up-and-coming authors, all talented writers who we know have very promising writing careers ahead of them,â Reader Views Managing Editor Irene Watson says âAll of the book that have made the list deserve a good look from the big publishing houses.â
The Reader Views Annual Literary Awards are granted in fiction and nonfiction categories. The entries are first read and judged by Reader Views reviewers, all avid readers with a wide range of experiences, considered experts in their respective fields. A a second line of judges make the final decision. âIt is an honor to even be on the list,â said Hardie. âAnd to be second out of over 2,000 books is quite an accomplishment.â Earlier this year EveryDay Life was named The Best Kept Literary Secret of 2008. Aside from great reviews MG Hardie work has been compared to that of Tyler Perryâs.
About âEveryDay Lifeâ In a neighborhood dominated by gangs, drugs, alcohol, guns and self-created obstacles there are no guarantees, especially when it comes to making it out alive. EveryDay Life relays powerful messages about life, death and all things in-between in Americaâs urban ghettos and forces people to look at issues that are all too easy to ignore from urban sprawl, race relations to Fatherhood and politics. It is a terribly smart work of literature that that holds no punches while delivering an extremely humorous story all within a Hip Hop backdrop. EveryDay Life is far from just a story about a selected African American community in Los Angeles, itâs about all of us and what we choose as our life.
