The Delaware Press Association held its 41st annual Communications Contest Awards Banquet on May 3 at the University & Whist Club in Wilmington.

Devil's Party Press of Milton captured two awards. “Halloween Party 2017,” the publisher's debut release from October 2017, took third place in the "Short Stories — Collection" category, while “Solstice,” DPP's sophomore title from December 2017, captured second place in this same category.

"The Delaware Press Association is a wonderful organization, and I am honored that our first two ventures into the world of publishing were recognized by the DPA judges. We look forward to being actively involved with the DPA in the months and years ahead,” said DPP Publisher Dianne Pearce.

DPP also unveiled its publishing roadmap for the remainder of 2018, which features two original novels, each by Milton authors. “One of the Madding Crowd” by David Dutton is scheduled for publication in August, while “Mosquitoes and Men” by Mark Polo is scheduled for a November release. DPP will also publish three anthologies this year: “Equinox” on May 7, “Aurora” on July 23 and a third untitled collection to be released in late November. The publisher is currently accepting submissions for “Aurora.”
