I’ve been teaching, coaching/mentoring, critiquing and generally being bossy in a writerly way for almost 14 years. I’m thrilled to be starting another year of doing the aforementioned with this award.
The Book Awards have been run by ‘not for profit’ publisher Acclaimed Books Limited, since 2008 and in that time, tens of thousands of voters from over one hundred countries around the world have shown their appreciation by supporting and nominating books in the competition. This is the first year awards have been offered to professionals who support the literary industry.
The Book Awards Managing Director, Peter Lihou said:
“We have run the awards for over five years but last year was the first time we featured the, often unsung, stalwarts of the literary industry, our supporting professionals. Without the help of these talented individuals and organisations, many of our much-loved stories would never have seen the light of day.”
The Book Awards are the only international awards that are open to all professionals offering services to authors and titles distributed in Kindle or Printed formats by Amazon.com sites around the world. Any one can nominate or vote for a professional without charge or registration. Dubbed The People’s Book Awards, this openness attracts large numbers of visitors to the awards site http://www.thebookawards.com.
Many thanks to those who voted for me 🙂
