The 2023 global book awards

Featuring our medal winners and finalists in each of their categories, the Global Book Awards aim to recognize talented authors that have not received the recognition they deserve in self-publishing.

In this modern age of publishing, books need to be appraised not only by their content and writing style, but also by the way they present and market themselves to the prospective buyer, whether that is in the good ratings it has on important stores like Amazon, its book cover and description, or the number of reviews it has collected. They must also appeal to new readers so part of the evaluation included a survey asking avid readers to select the top 5 books they enjoyed the most.

The awards are grouped by category and divided into Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Award Finalists. We congratulate the winners once again and encourage readers to try out their books.

Hello Kurt. Congratulations! We are pleased to confirm your book Boy in the Barn won a medal in this year’s Global Book Awards.

Announced on Sept. 6, 2023, Boy in the Barn: Journey of Triumph Over Horrific Child Abuse, Sexual Abuse, and PTSD was AWARD FINALIST in the 2023 GLOBAL BOOK AWARDS’ category of Politics & Social Sciences.

His latest novel follows a boy from his terrible childhood.

It is fiction based on Ellis’s life. Although not a memoir, it was inspired by his memories, flashbacks, triggers, and struggles to overcome abuse and trauma.

Writing began as a form of therapy to continue with his lifelong healing journey. But, determined not to be defined by abuse, Ellis becomes more than just another sexual abuse statistic.

Kurt B. Ellis is now an enthusiastic writer of contemporary and science fiction books. He is also an advocate for sexually abused people or those who were cruelly suppressed by events in life beyond their control.

Kurt was born, raised, and educated in the southeastern USA. After a long and rewarding career as a scientist, regulator, and advisor in the foods-manufacturing industry, he retired from public work.

Kurt remarried and now lives in the Midwest with his husband. Kurt is the father of two wonderful grown children and the proud grandfather of two precious granddaughters.

Kurt is an avid gardener who loves growing vegetables, yard work, and landscaping.

Beyond writing and advocating for abuse victims, other passions include traveling, fine dining, drinking robust red wines, reading, and investing.

His book was inspired by Stephen Mills’s – Chosen: A Memoir of Stolen Boyhood, Elizabeth Smart’s – My Story, and Delia Owens’s – Where The Crawdads Sing.
