“Dead Man Rising” wins two Global ebook Awards.
From a Watery Grave to an Incredible Life won the Global ebook Awards for 2012 for best memoir and best Christian ebook. Selected from a field of over five-hundred entries from sixteen countries, author Larry Skahill was thrilled to receive the awards from TV, film, stage actress and NYT best-selling author Marilu Henner.
Per the publisher, “Dead Man Rising is a near-death-experience (NDE) inspirational story of hope that defies physical laws and medical knowledge and will encourage you with a faith that all things happen for a reason.
An afternoon of birthday fun spearfishing near Santa Barbara, California turns into a fight for life after Larry is ran over by a fishing boat and “essentially cut-in-half.”
Dead Man Rising will take you on an “enormous personal journey” (Dr. Kenneth Waxman, Board of Governors, American College of Surgeons) to the very “gates of Heaven” (Pastor Jerry Morris) and back to a fight for his life that will require “grit and determination” for a “triumph over adversity against all odds,” (Captain Steve McCullough, Santa Barbara Harbor Master).
While delighted by both Global ebook awards, Larry was especially pleased with the memoir win as memoirs alone represented hundreds of entries and was the largest category in the contest.
Dead Man Rising is currently available only in ebook form at:
Due to the dual Global ebook awards, a print edition will be released in the spring of 2013.
