Press Release 3rd Annual PenCraft Awards Ceremony To Be Headlined by Linnea Tanner for Outstanding Literary Achievement; Book Signing at Old Firehouse Books

The PenCraft Awards for 2019 will recognize 48 remarkable works in numerous categories at its 3rd Annual Event, which will be held at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Lake Charles, LA. Three of the outstanding Winners will share the spotlight that night as the best of the best. The following is an excerpt from the PenCraft Award News Release

The Best Book of the Year award was won by Linnea Tanner with her book, Apollo’s Raven (Curse of Clansmen and Kings) (Volume 1), published by Apollo Raven Publisher, LLC. The book is a captivating tale about triangles; love, lust, and espionage; friend, foe, and spies; civilized Rome, barbarians and spiritual-supernatural beings. The author’s knowledge of the mythology and the history of 24 AD Celtic tribes is astounding as she weaves a tapestry of intrigue, a Gordian knot of rivalry, and a love story.

Since childhood, Tanner has passionately read about ancient civilizations and mythology, which held women in higher esteem. Of particular interest to her were the enigmatic Celts who were known as fierce warriors and mystical Druids. Depending on the time of day and season of the year, you will find her exploring and researching ancient and medieval history, mythology and archaeology to support her writing. As the author of the Curse of Clansmen and Kings series, she has extensively researched and traveled to sites described within each book.

Linnea Tanner has received multiple awards for her literary endeavors in 2019. She’s been a recipient of the Colorado Independent Publishers Association 2019 CIPA’s EVVY Bronze Medal, the 2019 Readers’ Favorite GOLD MEDAL for Fiction: Magic/Wizardry genre, and also a Gold Medal in the 2019 Global EBook Awards for the category of fantasy/Historical.

Linnea is a native of Colorado, currently residing in Windsor, Colorado. She holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Colorado. She lives with her husband and is the mother of two children.

Linnea Tanner will be at the PenCraft Awards’ ceremony, January 20, 2020, to meet and greet fans and her contemporaries. She will be there to talk about her fascinating Curse of Clansmen and Kings series.

Book Awards Dagger’s Destiny

I’m honored to announce that Book 2 of the Curse of Clansmen and Kings Series, Dagger’s Destiny, has won the following awards in both the genres of historical fiction and fantasy.

Dagger’s Destiny sweeps you into an epic tale of forbidden love, mythological adventure, and political intrigue in Ancient Rome and Britannia. The story of Catrin, daughter of King Amren, and King Amren’s sworn enemy Marcellus, who through a wicked twist of fate has become Catrin’s lover. Catrin must prove her loyalty to her father by forsaking Marcellus and defending her kingdom—even if it could ultimately mean her death.


Thank you for your continued support.

Best Wishes,
Linnea Tanner
