This year, I received an early Christmas gift when I was notified that my latest novel, Never Waste Dreams, has been awarded an indieBRAG Medallion. It’s a special recognition because I now carry this honor on three of my independently self-published books. Here’s why I’m so proud to be chosen as an honoree:
B.RA.G. is an acronym for Book Readers Appreciation
Independently published authors are invited to nominate their books by submitting them to a selection process. This entails an initial screening to ensure the author’s work meets certain minimum quality and content standards. If the book passes the preliminary assessment, it is read by a selected group of indieBRAG’s global reader team members. Each book goes through an evaluation phase and is judged against a comprehensive list of relevant literary criteria. If a book is considered worthy, it is awarded a Medallion and listed on their website.
I’m a reader as well as an author. While many of my own reading choices are written by traditionally published authors, I’ve found some first-rate books from many independent authors.
