Besides being an indie author, I'm also an avid reader. I have discovered some fantastic voices and awesome reads thanks to indie publishing -- my favorites include Crista McHugh and Susan Kaye Quinn. I'm so thankful they had the courage to write and share their stories.
If you have enjoyed an indie story and felt similarly grateful to certain authors, well now is your chance to say thank you. There are several indie groups looking to hand out awards to deserving books and authors:
The 2014 Indie Romance Convention Awards is accepting nominations. Check out the pretty award!
Then there is Indie ReCon...
They have two contest categories: Best Indie Novel Award and Best Indie Cover Award. Nominations are open from Feb 3 to Feb 14, 2014.
So go celebrate your indie authors with a nomination or two! Happy reading!
P.S. If you know of any other indie awards looking for nominations, mention them in the comments and I'll add them in!
