‘Sir Kaye the Boy Knight’ Series Wins Coveted Royal Dragonfly Book Award
CHANDLER, AZ (November, 2017) – The judges of the 2017 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in all genres of literature have spoken, and the Sir Kaye the Boy Knight series by Don M. Winn, won 1st place in the Best Children’s Book Series category.
“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Contest is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the Dragonfly Book Awards, a minimum score is required before a First or Second Place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the sole entry in a category,” explains Linda F. Radke, president of the Dragonfly Book Awards program. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”
The Sir Kaye the Boy Knight series follows the adventures of Sir Kaye, a twelve-year-old knight in the fictional medieval land of Knox. The series consists of four chapter books for ages 8 and up: The Knighting of Sir Kaye, The Lost Castle Treasure, Legend of the Forest Beast, and The Eldridge Conspiracy. Each book retails for $9.95 for the paperback version and can be purchased at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and the iTunes store. Hard cover, library bound, and eBooks are also available.
