FLORIDA WRITER AMONG THOSE HONORED IN NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS PROGRAM


Robert Jay awarded Honorable Mention in the New England Book Awards Book Festival for his latest book,
Montooth 3:  Red Cross of Gold

RUSKIN, Florida – Florida novelist Robert Jay has been named among the winners and finalists in this year’s New England Book Festival Book Awards Program.  An annual national book awards program, the New England Book Festival celebrates the best books of the holiday season.

This year’s awards program recognized Florida author Robert Jay, who was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Young Adult category for his latest novel, Montooth 3:  Red Cross of Gold.

Published by Cloverleaf Corporation, Publishing Division, Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold (ISBN: 978-0-9891171-0-4, Hardcover, 534 Page Count, $21.99) is the newest release in the multiple award-winning Montooth quintet. Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold was released after  the premiere of the Montooth and the Canfield Witch film book trailer (produced by HuB Studios) which can be viewed by visiting: www.montoothbooks.com.

Montooth 3:  Red Cross of Gold features Carty Andersson and her Crew—Blake Holmes, Hale Wending, and Maximilian “Mack” Stein. When Montooth 3: Red Cross of Gold opens, it’s the mid-1950s—smack dab in the middle of the rock ‘n’ roll era. Television shows are replacing radio programs, and refrigeration retires horse-drawn home milk delivery and kitchen canning. Change may be afoot, but one thing is constant:  Carty and her band of brothers are about to find themselves in the middle of a big adventure.   Suspense, adventure, intrigue, and mystery intersect in this charming new Montooth tale.

Since 1992, Jay has served as the president of a national highway safety company headquartered in Florida. He holds several patents for safety devices used on roads.
