Black, White, and Gray All Over by Book Award Pro author Frederick Douglass Reynolds is more than just “cop stories.” Reynolds offers an honest, firsthand account of 1980s Compton. He boldly shares his perspective on gang violence, the crack epidemic, and rampant government corruption as a black man who found himself on both sides of the law.

Black, White, and Gray All Over has gone on to become one of the most awarded independently published books in its genre. It’s also received dozens of glowing reviews from some of today’s most respected experts in literature and is available at Target, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.

In his Book Award Pro review, Reynolds discusses the massive success of Black, White, and Gray All Over and how curated awards, reviews, and story marketing helped him unlock author acclaim.

Legitimate awards and reviews for your book

The complexity of today’s expansive award and review landscape is a common challenge for authors of all kinds. Even highly esteemed authors like Frederick Douglass Reynolds face the formidable size of the task. Here’s what Reynolds had to say about the difficulty of finding awards before using Book Award Pro:

I found researching book awards to be time-consuming and tedious, as there are literally thousands of different award options and not all of them are reputable.

Being matched with your perfect awards and reviews is an important first step. However, the secret to unlocking author notability is what you do with your award and review journey.

With story marketing, each step toward winning an award or receiving a review is an engaging piece of marketing content. For an independent author like Frederick Douglass Reynolds, the Story Marketing feature made promoting his book on social media easier and more effective than ever before. He said:

The publisher that I used did very little to promote my book, so I had to do everything on my own. Being able to promote my book with its award seals attracts curious readers. The Story Marketing feature from Book Award Pro has given my book increased visibility.
