The last couple of years I’ve had a chance to work with this wonderful program and wanted to let you all know about The Whitney Awards!
ABOUT THE WHITNEY AWARDS
What are the Whitneys? (excerpt from the official website)
The Whitney Awards honor novels in the following categories: General Fiction, Romance, Suspense/Mystery, Speculative Fiction, Speculative Young Adult Fiction, General Young Adult Fiction, Middle Grade, Historical, Best Novel of the Year, Best Novel in Youth Fiction, and Best Novel by a New Author.
Novels can be nominated by any reader (via this website or by mail), and nominees are voted on by an academy of industry professionals, including authors, publishers, bookstore owners, distributors, critics, and others.
See all of the awesome books that won Whitneys, last year, in 2012 here.
