Imzadi Publishing author Michael Stephen Daigle keeps bringing home awards and accolades for The Weight of Living, the third Frank Nagler Mystery. The Weight of Living has now been listed as one of the Independent Press Awards 2018 Distinguished Favorites!
The third Frank Mystery, “The Weight of Living,” brings Nagler and his friends dangerously face to face with an evil that knows no bounds and threatens to consume anyone in its path.
It is a story with twists and turns as Nagler fights through layers of lies and half-truths and searches a sketchy past to bring the chance of healing to the damaged, and a criminal to justice.

The third Frank Nagler Mystery, “The Weight of Living,” has been named a Notable 100 Book in the 2018 Shelf Unbound Indie Book Awards.
Thanks to Shelf Unbound, and to the Imzadi Publishing gang, Janice Grove and Anita-Dugan Moore.
Anita’s cover for “Weight” was presented a Gold Medal by authorsdb.com, an author/readers database site.
Also, a shout out to Kathleen Tate, Imzadi’s copy editor, who was so concerned about the abrupt ending of the story, when she sent back the proof, asked if I had sent her the complete manuscript.

Mike Daigle is deserving of every award he has won for this series.
Got my certificate. A Certificate of Excellence in Literature. (Really? Really.)
It is an honor.
Thanks to the judges at the 2017 Royal Dragonfly Book Award contest for recognizing my mystery, “The Weight of Living” with a FIRST PLACE AWARD for Mysteries.
