The Premier Book Award recognized Shadow Cay as a must read, acknowledging it was most successful in achieving its purpose and meeting its intended audience's needs.

Premier Book Awards ™

Now in its third year, the Premier Book Awards recognize excellence in independent publishing and books of outstanding merit. Judged by a panel of book industry experts, these books have been scrutinized by individuals involved in the very markets in which the books are competing. The primary goal of Premier Book Awards is to recognize authors and publishers for superior achievements in their chosen genre. The secondary goal is to assure readers that a book chosen to receive a Premier Book Award is truly of outstanding and well worth adding to their libraries. Olson says, "We believe we have achieved both goals." Books are grouped by genre and are evaluated on editorial and design merit by a panel of judges. Both independent publishers and small presses competed for the coveted awards.
