The Concealers, Book 2 of The Collectibles Trilogy, by author, James J. Kaufman, has just been selected as a 2014 Nautilus Silver winner in fiction.



In addition, The Concealers was reviewed by Kirkus which stated: “Readers who like their fiction with a strong dose of inspiration and morality will enjoy this outing.”— Kirkus Reviews.



Kaufman’s The Collectibles, Book 1 of The Collectibles Trilogy, also received the Nautilus Silver Award in fiction in 2011. Both novels are Amazon Best Sellers.



“I am honored and heartened by these awards,” said Kaufman, “Especially because the purpose of the Nautilus award is to inspire the reader to new possibilities for a better world—which is what The Collectibles and now The Concealers is all about.”



Kaufman’s press-rep David Salidor said, “Jim was up in New York last week meeting with agents pursuant to a possible screenplay. The Concealers, is a positive and uplifting story about discovering how to trust and rely on others, transcending limitations and gaining a sense of personal empowerment.”
