2016 Summer Indie Book Awards!

My book, Hard Climate, number eight in the Men of London series,  has been nominated for this award in the Romance category and I’m really chuffed. (For those of you don’t know British slang, it means really, really pleased and delighted)

Hard Climate is book eight in my Men of London series, with this very hawt cover….

Keep in mind these links won’t be active until midnight Central US time on the early morning of September 1, so you won’t see anything there just yet.

THE VOTING PROCESS

Voting for the awards will be done by Pollmaker and links and instructions will be posted soon, hopefully a week before voting is due to start. Voting will be limited to one visit per day for anyone, until midnight on September 11, 2016. You may vote in any or all genres. Each genre will allow you to make multiple choices, as long as you checkmark them all BEFORE you hit the vote button for the first time.

So here’s a bit more form Metamorph Publishing on the Summer Indie Book Awards – #SIBA.

The cold of winter is setting in, at least for those of us in the northern Hemisphere of the world. But we at Metamorph Publishing aren’t letting that get us down! We’re already looking forward to a sizzling summer, and we’re here to announce our first annual Indie Book Awards! You heard that right, a summer book awards! The event officially begins on January 1st of each year, and nominations are accepted through midnight CST on August 22nd each year. Voting will begin on September 1st and end on September 10th each year.

“What’s the big deal,” you ask? “There are all kinds of contests out there.” And you’re right, there are hundreds, probably thousands of book awards. But many of them are only for unpublished authors, or authors who only write in certain narrow genres, or for authors who have never published before in a particular genre. Plus, there are plenty of them that charge an entry fee, some of which are prohibitive to authors who publish independently, without the backing of a large and powerful publishing house.

Feel free to join up with the event on Facebook at:

How do we reward winners?

Winners in each genre will receive a prize beginning with the 1st place winners. If we get enough prizes donated, we’ll go next to 2nd place winners, and then to 3rd place. Regardless of the prizes, winners will get a high-quality winner badge, stating their place and the genre of the book. These will be of high enough resolution for authors to use on their print books, if they want to!

But it’s not only the winners that will benefit from the Summer Indie Book Awards! All nominated authors will have the potential to reach hundreds, if not more, of new readers (readers often have a preferred genre, and while they’re voting for their favorite author, will come across others they may not have tried yet), and reach a huge new audience through the social media forums! And best of all, it’s meant to have fun, to reach out and network with other authors, potentially forming long-lasting relationships. And readers will benefit from having a wealth of new books in front of them, as well as a vast amount of new stories to immerse themselves in.

Though we’re using Facebook and other social media as a platform to reach more authors and readers, none of these social media outlets are affiliated with the awards. They are hosted strictly by Metamorph Publishing. Why not use hashtag #SIBA and help get the word out.
