The Readers’ Favorite Award Ceremony began, on time, at 7 pm, Saturday 18th of November. The ‘featured image’ shows the stage before the start. Basically, it looks the same as last year… the difference being it says 2017 on this year’s banner whereas (to state the obvious) last year’s banner said 2016
Some of us met on Friday morning at the Readers’ Favorite Booth at the Miami Book Fair.
Readers' Favorite Award Ceremony
It is an awesome feeling to be in a room brimming with talent. There is a buzz in the air as authors, their guest/partner, the Press and the VIPs mingle before the start. It is a time when authors who have been here previously, greet other repeat award-winners.
It is also a time to meet and talk with first-time winners.
Did you see that hilarious Facebook Live Interview by Jo Dibblee?
I met her last year, bought her book – and reviewed it – also in the backseat is Brenda Hammon, first time award winner.
We all have stories...
Not only the ones we write about. There are struggles, there are disappointments and hurts. Conversely there are also joys.
Authors encourage each other, some of us write to each other.
All of us, have a ‘hall of fame’
…People who have helped and encouraged us on the way. Writing a book is a huge investment in time and resources and although the writing part is solitary, it is not done in isolation.
I have a hall of fame – support of many people. Most know who they are… don’t you.
However, with the physical production of the books in the Apostle John Series, there are some team helpers.
There are many others who have encouraged me, supported me and kept in touch with me when I have felt isolated. Although unnamed here, I thank God for each and every one of you.
Then there are the folks, most of whom I will never meet… readers! Without you where would any author be?
Whether you read on an electronic device, or prefer to hold a printed book – thank you!
And a special mention to those readers who leave reviews so that other readers know what you think of the book.
So, the Readers’ Favorite Award Ceremony is over for 2017. I attended because of all of you, and your support.
Take a bow – you are special.
