Blood Moon Scores Two First Prize Awards at the New England Book Festival Awards Ceremony
On January 15, 2011, the Awards Committee of the New England Book Festival designated two Blood Moon titles as FIRST PRIZE WINNERS in their respective categories for 2010. First Prize WINNER of BEST ANTHOLOGY of 2010 was Blood Moon's HOLLYWOOD BABYLON STRIKES AGAIN. First Prize WINNER of BEST Gay and Lesbian Titles of 2010 was 50 Years of Queer Cinema, 500 of the Best GLBTQ Films Ever Made.

In his acceptance speech, Prince emphasized, "We are honored with these designations from a literary committee representing NEW ENGLAND, a region with the highest literacy rates, and some of the most prolific output of literature, in the world. To the degree to which these awards reflect the literary tastes of New England and its readers as a whole, we are deeply appreciative, deeply grateful."
NEW, HOT, and AVAILABLE IN BOOKSTORES EVERYWHERE in late February from Blood Moon Productions: DAMN YOU, SCARLETT O'HARA. The Private Lives of Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier, by Darwin Porter and Roy Moseley.
As quoted at the awards ceremony by Danforth Prince in reference to this seminal new title, which is loaded with new, never-before-published information about the 20th century's most gossiped-about actors, "It's about Scarlett O'Hara and Heathcliff, tragically linked, in love, and together on the road to hell. Fasten your seat belts, 'cause it's gonna be a helluva ride."
