The year is nearly a quarter over (where’d the time go?!), so that means it’s time to start thinking about the Independent Literary Awards. For those who may be unfamiliar with what those are:
Independent Literary Awards are given to books that have been recommended and voted on by independent literary bloggers. Nominations are open to independent literary bloggers only, and are then voted upon by a panel of bloggers who are proficient in the genre they represent. Each panel is led by a judge who oversees the integrity of the process.
The awards are given in a number of genres, and I am honored to have been asked to serve as a member of the “Mystery” panel.
Nominations in all genres will be open from September 1st through December 31st, and I encourage my fellow bloggers to participate in that process. If the spirit moves you, also feel free to add an Independent Literary Awards button to your website and help spread the word. There are going to be a lot of great books to consider by the time September rolls around, so start making your list now!
