Michael Poeltl was voted Best Writer/Author for 2010 by The View magazine, a weekly alternative newspaper serving the cities of Hamilton, Burlington and the Golden horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, reaching over 1 million potential voters/viewers.

The October 21st edition of The View contained the long awaited Best of 2010 list of arts, events, restaurants and meeting places. With a population of more than 500,000 in Hamilton proper and an additional half million potential readers throughout the Golden horseshoe region of southern Ontario, a nod from The View during its Best of edition should prove very beneficial to those that placed.

“I’m very happy to have won this prestigious award,” says Poeltl from his home a few blocks east of the city’s celebrated Gage Park. “That the readers voted me as their favorite local author is a huge honor.”

Since restaurants, bars, nightclubs and local historical landmarks will likely see a rise in attendance because of this rating system, it is fair to say that Poeltl will see more book sales. His debut novel, The Judas Syndrome, which has spawned a series, has fetched a substantial following on his Facebook fan page and other on-line directories. The fan page houses several reviews to help potential readers decide on whether to take up the series. Other sites which include reviews of the book are Goodreads.com and Amazon.com, where the book is available in print and in e-book kindle format.
The book can be purchased either in paperback, or multiple e-book formats designed to work with every reader.
