It's Your Turn to Be Heard

If you have ever followed an awards show or awaited the announcement of a book award winner with an anticipatory trepidation: hoping your favored choice will win, knowing it won't; this is your chance to set the record straight.  Wallace at Unputdownables has created a platform that will give book bloggers a unified voice: the Independent Literary Awards.  Don't pass up this opportunity to put some added weight behind your opinion.

I'm thrilled to be on the panel for the Literary Fiction category--if you want to see a goofy picture of me, and a silly little blurb, you'll find it on the Judges and Panelists page.  I can't wait to see what books you all consider to be this year's Must Reads.  If you have a book blog, get on over there and nominate your favorite book from 2010.  Also, help give book bloggers a voice by spreading the word.  Grab the button, visit the site, nominate a book!

amused, bemused and confused:  "Don’t be put off by the word ‘literary’. We’re not just interested in fancy-schmancy high art. If you are a book blogger, that’s literary enough."

in so many words: "It's about time the ever-growing, ever-expanding, ever-more-powerful book blogging community had an award of its own."

Book Gazing: "I'm hoping people nominate a really interesting load of submissions,"

Amy Reads: " excited to read all the books."

Book Chatter: "...I can’t wait to see what makes the short list."


  1. Hey, thanks for including a quote fro me :D I'm so excited about the awards (I'm on the panel for the GLBTQ category) and hope that lots of bloggers show interest!

  2. That's what I'm hoping for too--I think it has great potential, and should be a lot of fun at the same time.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, leave a comment!
