I’ve written before here about how supportive I find the indie publishing community when compared to the world of traditional publishing. Maybe I’m lucky, and I move in particularly cooperative, friendly circles, but today I discovered that several online friends and acquaintances have been nominated for eFestival of Words: The Best of Independent eBook Awards. As I was perusing the nominations, I also realized that Cage Life was nominated, which came as quite a shock—a very pleasant shock, but a shock nonetheless. Now, I not only have several good Indie friends (authors such as David Gaughran, Christine DeMaio-Rice, Lin Welch, Jack Wallen, and Michelle Muto) to vote for, but I also have the satisfaction of knowing that my little Indie short story “experiment” resonated with enough readers to see at least someone nominate it (and whoever you are, thank you so very, very much).
The finalists will be announced on 1 July and voting begins (so fingers crossed I make it to the next round), with votes finalized on 17 August. In the meantime, check out the site and browse the bookstore to see what indie publishing has to offer. 🙂
