No guest author today. Life has been crazy lately and I forgot to invite someone, but not to worry. This actually works out fine because I want to tell you a little about BigAl’s Books and Pals, where my book, Dearest Irish (Texas Devlins, Rose’s Story) is nominated for a 2014 Reader’s Choice Award in the Romance category. It’s a tight race!
BigAl’s Books and Pals was recently selected as the Best Review Site by Indies Unlimited. That’s quite an accolade, but it’s well deserved. Al is one of the most respected online reviewers around. The fact that Al and his Pals are dedicated to supporting indie authors puts their reviews in big demand. My hope is to have Al as my guest here in the near future.
Quoting the message I received about Dearest Irish being nominated:
“In the twelve months ending February 28th, 2014, BigAl and the Pals will have received over 1,400 books to consider for review and published 368 book reviews. From those, we chose the books we felt stood out from the pack as exceptional examples of Indie (self-published and small press) writing and divided them into thirteen categories. ”
You can understand why I’m so thrilled to see my book among the chosen few. This being my second year in a row to receive an award nomination from Books and Pals simply astounds me. Even though last year’s entry, Dashing Irish, didn’t win in its category, I’m proud to display my nominee badge on this site. Should I be lucky enough to win this year, I will dance on air. Your vote can help me achieve that goal.
