ONCE WE WERE KINGS by Ian Alexander places in two categories, Fiction: Fantasy/Sci-Fi and Fiction: Young Adult in the USA Book News Best Book Awards
Announced on November 1, 2011 by USA Book News, Ian Alexander’s epic fantasy novel ONCE WE WERE KINGS landed not one, but two finalist awards in the Best Books of 2011. When asked to comment, Mr. Alexander simply said, “It’s divine providence, and a great honor.”
Mr. Alexander (the epic fantasy pseudonym by International Book Award winning author Joshua Graham) wrote ONCE WE WERE KINGS at the request of his then six year old son, who read the entire seven book “Chronicles of Narnia” series of C.S. Lewis. Unable to turn down such a heartfelt request, Graham began the first in his own epic fantasy series known as “The Sojourner Saga.”
ONCE WE WERE KINGS debuted as an ebook in May 2011 and in its first week hit multiple bestseller lists on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com. The hardcover edition is soon to be released.
A hit among adult and young readers, ONCE WE WERE KINGS has been enjoyed in middle school classrooms and will soon find its way into the libraries of schools and even juvenile correctional facilities, where Mr. Alexander hopes to bring not only entertainment, but a love for reading, and hope for the future of young people.
