I am soooo excited to announce a new project sponsored by the Happily Ever After Book Club that I've had a very small hand in. Kathy at Bookworm Nation, had an amazing idea and she, along with Kathy Jo at KJ's Book Nook, and I have teamed up to put together the Swoony Awards! Kathy found Tiana at The Blog Decorator and she did the most amazing job at designing our logo!
What are the Swoony Awards? Well, let me tell you. We are all lovers of good, clean fiction, especially books that make us swoon, hence the name. As we've been talking, we decided that there needs to be an award out there that recognizes all of the authors who really make an effort to bring a fun and entertaining story to readers without all the sex, language, gore, etc--a book that you can recommend to your mom...or grandma...or friend...without being embarrassed by it. We are going to have awards in a variety of categories, so please be sure to vote!
Here are the requirements to nominate a book:
- Only books published (or republished) in 2014 may be nominated
- Clean--no sex (closed door)
- Mild/no language
- Mild/no violence
