CompletelyNovel bring you the Author Blog Awards 2010. The aim is to highlight to readers the great content that you can find in author blogs and microblogs. We also want to reward those authors who engage with their readers online, especially as they often invest a lot of their time in doing so.
Oh, and if we encourage other authors to do the same in future, that’s great too! Nominations are now open so please head over to the Author Blog Awards Page to find out more and nominate your favourite author blog.
The awards are being run by CompletelyNovel.com and we have also partnered with publishing news website BookBrunch and publishers such as Allison and Busby, The Random House Group, Quartet, Simon and Schuster and Headline.
To encourage as many people as possible to nominate and vote in the awards, we will be offering prizes including books, eBooks, eReaders, event tickets etc to randomly selected participants, provided by CompletelyNovel and the partners in the awards. You can check out the selection of free books and prizes to be won here.
