ORLANDO, FL – Author and lecturer Patricia Charpentier won a silver award in the category of self-help/instruction for her book, Eating an Elephant: Write Your Life One Bite at a Time. This is the third award the book has won since its publication.  Eating an Elephant was a first place winner in both the Royal Palm Literary Awards and Global E-book Awards.

The Florida Publishers Association (FPA) presented its 2012 President’s Book Awards at the Helmsley Sandcastle Hotel on Lido Beach, Sarasota following the organization’s two-day Fall Ed-U-Conference, themed “From Pbooks to Ebooks: Publish, Promote and Profit.” Participants attended presentations by nationally-recognized book experts and successful independent publishers in Florida. 

“The award winners represent some of the very best books published by Florida writers and presses in the past year and a half,” said Chris Angermann, FPA President.
The competition’s 35 judges, consisting of 32 Florida librarians and three graphic designers, selected publishers and authors whose books represented the best in 20 categories.
