2016 Beachie Award

I’m really excited to announce that my book was chosen by alt-lit reviewer Beach Sloth for a 2016 Beachie Award.
“Best Novel (Male): Andrew Miller’s If Only The Names Were Changed– I began the book knowing nothing and by the end I knew it all. This is a book that consumes the reader whole and I liked the unusual multi-layered, multi-faceted life that lives within the pages.”

“Fasten your seat belts. Andrew Miller’s alternative lit style is about to take you on a bumpy ride.
