My cousin is a self-published author. Apparently her latest piece has been nominated for this award, which I have never heard of. (Amazingly, I got an email from this award promoting their nominees! Can’t *imagine* how they got my email. >this is my surprised face<)

Because I am very cynical about stuff, and the amount of self-promotion needed for self-publishing, I’m wondering about this award

Here’s the website:

I looked it over, still can’t see who runs the award or what the criteria are for winning.

I mean, it may be real and it may be prestigious. :shrug:
