Pauline Kok-Schurgers, author of The Remains of War
It took Pauline Kok-Schurgers more than 60 years to summon the courage to write her memoir about her family’s incarceration in a Japanese interment camp in Indonesia during World War II. The result is an utterly gripping account of this painful time in her life and an eye-opening story of a little-known slice of WWII history.
Susan Muth, author of ‘The Beach at Herculaneum’
How does an author take two women living centuries apart, two romances, and a devastating historical event and combine them all into one can’t-put-it-down read? We have no idea how Susan G. Muth managed such a feat. But we can tell you, unequivocally, that she has delivered a read you won’t want to miss.
Jeffrey Belle, author of ‘Carlos the Impossible’
It’s no surprise to find a talented writer working in a place that sells books. But we never expected to find him in a place that sells them by the ton! As it turns out, we located our first BlueInk Best Book Award winner at Amazon.com. Jeffrey Belle (pen name JTK Belle), is the company’s vice president of books, responsible for Amazon’s in-house publishing ventures.
