Hats Off! to Peggy Payne whose most recent novel, Cobalt Blue, has received an IPPY in the category of Visionary Fiction. These Independent Publisher medals for 2014 will be awarded in New York on May 28 during Book Expo America. The contest was open to books published in English last year by publishers outside of the five major New York houses. Cobalt Blue was released in six countries by a British house, Roundfire Books. In this novel, set in Pinehurst and New Orleans, a woman artist has a mysterious physical and spiritual experience that overwhelms her and disturbingly unsettles her life.
