Hello world!

Have you ever wondered what it means when someone pushes an “award w inning” book or author?

Have you ever wondered why YOUR favorite author hasn’t won a bucketload of awards?

Have you ever wondered what idiot gave this book/audio-book/short-story/e-book/web-site an award?

I think books, authors, and the written word are some of the most precious/important/wonderful things we produce as a culture and that they SHOULD be awarded & rewarded, but I also think it’s good to know what an award is FOR before you put any creedence into its merit. So..it begins.

Look for posts about specific awards, awarding groups, and lists of “winners.” Some awards will be painfully familiar, some will be new or more obscure.  If you know of a good one I’m missing, let me know!

If the mood strikes, you might just find something worth reading….

Are you out there? Hello? Anyone? (Thanks for reading! )
