I have an idea!
I want to do something special for the authors who are featured on this blog.
Yecheilyah’s Book Review Awards – a virtual event in which 5-star rated authors on The PBS Blog are honored with promotion, culminating in a Book Review Award gifted to the author whose book stood out to me the most.
To up the stakes, I would like to give this author an actual award. Not a virtual certificate, not a blog award, and not a badge but something tangible he or she can sit on his or her desk and be proud of! (Of course, I’m not a rich woman so I’ll be looking for something reasonable, but nice.)
This means I will have to decide on the best place (I do have one in mind) and get a logo made!!
Of course, since I read the books and reviewed them I would be the only judge of this contest and there would only be one winner whose book beat the others in all areas:
- Book Cover Art
- Character Development
- Plot Movement / Strength
- Thought Provoking
The book in which I have given a five-star review that has beat the others in these areas will be the winning book of the year and will receive the prize from me.
Naturally, to participate I would have had read your book and given it five-stars before the excitement begins.
Which is, err, I don’t know yet. I am thinking December? Make it an end of the year thing. What do YOU think?? Should we do this?!
Again, this would mean that if you’ve been reviewed by me and I gave you five-stars, you are automatically drafted into the competition! And by December, I should have reviewed a lot more of you.
Of course, I’ll need help with this! If you want to help me to organize something special for your fellow authors of excellence, please send me an email so we can discuss details. (Ohh. I like the sound of that, “Authors of Excellence”. Has a nice ring to it. Hmm.)
