Bywater Books and Amble Press are pleased to announce that K.M. Soehnlein (Army of Lovers, Amble Press, 2022) was awarded the 2024 Jim Duggins, PhD Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize by Lambda Literary.

The Jim Duggins Outstanding Mid-Career Novelists’ Prize is an American literary award presented to male and female writers from the LGBT+ community to honor their body of work. First presented by the Saints and Sinners Literary Festival in 2007, the award became part of the Lambda Literary Awards program in 2011. Originally presented annually, it was presented only once every three years for part of the 2010s before becoming an annual award again in the 2020s.

It is the largest literary award in the United States that is exclusively available to LGBT writers.

Writer and academic James Duggins endowed the award.
