Invictus, a new novel about music, race, and redemption, has been named a Finalist for the annual Landmark Prize for Fiction. Homebound Publications made the announcement on February 14, 2017. This year's prize went to Mark Seiler for the novel, River's Child. L.L. Holt was identified as the first of two Finalists for the award.
Several publishers are currently considering Invictus,
the story of a Black child born to a devious white musician and his
long-suffering wife in late 18th century Germany. Based largely on fact
and the result of years of research in Europe and the U.S., Invictus explores
what it means to be different, the power of music and genius, and the
indomitable human spirit. Publication is expected during the 2017-18
