OGDENSBURG -- A city native recently won an independent publishing award for a novel she penned.

Kate Bracy won the IndieReader Discovery Award for her book "That Crazy Little Thing."

Judges for the award, which she received at the Book Expo America in New York City, included publishers, publicists, reviewers and bloggers, according to Bracy.

A summary of the book on Amazon.com reads “There’s nothing about her life that doesn’t need a little work, so Melanie Davis thinks of herself as a ‘fixer-upper.’ Her history with men leaves her gun shy; her teenaged daughter can’t string two civil words together; her best friend Donna just found out she has a life-threatening illness. When Donna also reveals a decades-old secret that still haunts her, Melanie makes it her mission to solve the mystery and reunite Donna with a precious link to her past – before it’s too late. Along the way Melanie discovers with startling clarity the pricelessness of love and friendship.”

IndieReader.com is a website that sells self-published books. They also feature columns and op-ed pieces.

"That Crazy Little Thing" can be purchased online, including from Amazon.com. It is also available as an e-book.
