And...


It's Time to Nominate Your Favorite Books
for the Indie Lit Awards!


I bet you've read some fantastic books this year, right?
Why not nominate your favorites for an award then?!

What are the Independent Literary Awards?

From the website, here is a little about the award:
The Independent Literary Awards are book awards
given by literary bloggers.
All judges and panelists for theses awards
are completely independent
and do not receive compensation for reviews
nor their work on the award board.
The Independent Literary Awards is currently in its second year
and will be presenting the winners for
the 2011 calendar year in March of 2012.

What genres may receive awards?

The genres that will be represented and receiving awards for 2011 are:

·         Literary Fiction
·        Non-Fiction
·        Mystery
·        Speculative Fiction 
·         GLBTQ 

·         Biography/Memoir

·         Poetry
What, then, are the rules for making nominations?

■ Nominations are open to all readers
who do not make their income through the sales of books
(i.e. not authors, publishers, or publicists) —
hence “independent” from the publishing industry.
■ Books nominated must have a 2011 release date.

■ You may nominate a book that has already been listed
(the books with the most nominations
will be what we add to the Long List).

■ You may nominate books in more than one genre,
but only one per genre.

■ Nominations close December 31, 2011.


I'm happy to be serving as a Voting Member
 on the Non-Fiction team of the Indie Literary Awards!

I am anxious to read some great non-fiction titles,
so please, please, please head over to the links above
 and nominate some great books.
Please share this information on your blog
so that other great titles will be nominated.
Please tweet about it and Facebook about it.
Spread the word, literary bloggers!
