Congratulations to Mary Smith

Mary Smith’s new book, Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni: Real Stories of Afghan Women, has been nominated for The People’s Book Prize in the non-fiction category.

Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni: Real Stories of Afghan Women provides a remarkable insight into the lives of the women in Afghanistan with whom the author lived and worked. Despite the many hardships in their lives they are not all hopeless downtrodden victims but women of courage, determined to make the best of life for themselves and their children.

Readers are taken on a journey from the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif to the remote mountainous region of Hazara Jat, allowing them to get to know – and care about – the women as they deal with djinn, health classes, life and love.

Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni was released on 11/24/2012 by Indigo Dreams Publishing and is available through and Amazon UK.

For this award there is no panel of judges; the winner in each category is decided entirely by members of the public who can read extracts of the shortlisted titles before casting their vote.

Mary said: “I’m thrilled to have been nominated for The People’s Book Prize. However, I’m up against some strong contenders, including Roger Moore writing about James Bond, who are published by mainstream publishers. I’m really hoping the indie author community will get behind Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni and vote for it.”

  1. Congratulations! If there is anything we can do at Bublish to help get the word out about your book, please let us know. I used to live in Morocco, where I learned about the very amazing women who live behind the veil, so I’d love to help you share the stories of the women you met in Afghanistan. You can reach me at [email protected]. Best of luck!

    1. Kathy, thanks so much for your offer to help spread the word about my book. It’s so kind of you and I need all the help I can get! I’ll email you.
