Las Ve­gan Moore earns book award

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - BOOKS -

Lo­cal au­thor S.D. Moore’s book “Wicked Prayers” has won the gold medal in the fic­tion-hor­ror cat­e­gory in the Read­ers’ Fa­vorite 2017 In­ter­na­tional Book Award Con­test.

In “Wicked Prayers,” two small-town de­tec­tives and an un­usual band of he­roes fight to thwart Evil and his vi­o­lent crea­tures.

“As a child, I watched a very Chris­tian woman try to con­tact her dead sis­ter by plac­ing a let­ter to her on top of a glass of wa­ter sit­ting on her night­stand be­fore she said her bed­time prayers,” Moore ex­plains. “Spir­i­tu­al­ists call this prac­tice wa­ter gaz­ing. I used ‘Wicked Prayers’ to ex­plore the ques­tion, ‘What if evil came through that spirit door in­stead?’ ”

The con­test drew thou­sands of en­trants from around the world, rang­ing from new in­de­pen­dent au­thors to New York Times best-sell­ers.
