I’m thrilled to announce that LUDWIKA, a book from one of the most hard-working authors, is in the running for the 2016 Summer Indie Book Awards for Historical Fiction. I’ve featured Christoph many times on my blog and would consider it a huge WIN for him AND readers if his book won the prize.
It’s very easy to vote! Just hit this link or his book cover below. Thank you so much for your support of indie authors.

It’s World War II and Ludwika Gierz, a young Polish woman, is forced to leave her family and go to Nazi Germany to work for an SS officer. There, she must walk a tightrope, learning to live as a second-class citizen in a world where one wrong word could spell disaster and every day could be her last. Based on real events, this is a story of hope amid despair, of love amid loss . . . ultimately, it’s one woman’s story of survival.

Not a full local in the eyes and ears of his peers he developed an ambiguous sense of belonging and home in Bavaria. He moved to Hamburg in pursuit of his studies and to lead a life of literary indulgence. After a few years he moved on to the UK where he now lives in a small town in West Wales. He and his partner have three Labradoodles to complete their family.
