Judges Needed for Indie Ebook Awards 2017

LJ’s third annual Indie Ebook Awards are almost underway, and we’re looking for voracious readers to serve as judges. Volunteers will be asked to assess books in one of five categories: romance, sf, fantasy, mystery, or YA. This is an amazing opportunity to discover and support local authorship and reward self-published talent.
2017 Indie Ebook Awards LogoLJ’s third annual Indie Ebook Awards are almost underway, and we’re looking for voracious readers to serve as judges. Volunteers will be asked to assess books in one of five categories: romance, sf, fantasy, mystery, or YA. This is an amazing opportunity to discover and support local authorship and reward self-published talent. The contest will take place in two sections. Groups of first-round judges will be evaluating submissions assigned to them to determine the top ten finalists beginning mid-May to mid-August. After that, a final judge for each genre will have from the end of August to the end of October to choose a winner and two honorable mentions. They will also be asked to write LJ-style reviews for their selections. Those interested should email Kate DiGirolomo with the following information: name, library affiliation, preferred email, phone number, and at least three genre choices. Please indicate if you’re interested in being a first round judge, final round judge, or if you have no preference.
