Independent Literary Awards

You may have noticed that I added this new button to my side bar recently. That would be because I've accepted an invitation to join the voting members of the "Mystery" category of the Independent Literary Awards. I'm very excited to be a part of this because it's an award that is given based on what independent bloggers really love and recommend. Independent bloggers - for this purpose - are the ones who are doing this for the love of the books, not to earn a living. And we have a nice array of bloggers on the Mystery voting team.

I'd like to encourage fellow independent bloggers to nominate 2011 releases that you loved. Nominations will be accepted between September and the end of December. I'll remind you more about it throughout the year. I'm looking forward to seeing what bloggers love in the genre this year. But I know, we're only into March and there's already a slew of deserving books I've read - and that's just what I've read! The books this year will provide a challenge for nomination choices.

I'd also like to encourage you to pick up the button and add it to your blog to help spread the word. The more folks we have nominating, the better! Let's join together and show our appreciation for the books we believe deserve accolades because they've provided us with joy, entertainment, thrills, etc. They're the reasons we do this, right? So let's put them in the spotlight for all to see.

Let me know if you have questions about this. I might not have the answers, but I'm sure I can get them. I'm already excited about this and my role doesn't even start until January.
