The Second Draeken War has won a Literary Palm Award!

Ben Hale Royal Palm Recipeint 2013Over the weekend I stopped in at the Florida Writers Association state conference. At the banquet, I was honored to receive a first place Literary Palm Award for The Second Draeken War. I am so excited to have received it, and would like to thank the support of all my friends that waited at the banquet to see if I had won. You guys are awesome! As soon as I get a graphic set up I will insert it onto the cover of the my original trilogy. Also, on an unrelated note, I believe I have resolved the technical issue that was holding up the book release for The Last Oracle. It should go live later today or tomorrow at the latest. Thanks everyone for your patience!
