Indie authors name this site one of the best!

I was pretty happy to receive word that this website has been selected by The Alliance of Independent Authors to receive a “Top Website for Self-Publishers Award.” It’s the second time in less than a year that this site has been honored by independent authors.

The Alliance award is given to websites and blogs that the organizations members have nominated as outstanding.

Founder Orna Ross said in an e-mail that “With so much (mis)information flying around the Web, we wanted to create a benchmark that would signify excellence, integrity, creativity and helpfulness in the indie and self-publishing world.”

Alliance recognizes 12 sites

Here’s a complete list of sites receiving the honor this year — you can see that this resource is in good company:

  1. Sandra Beckwith, Build Book Buzz
  2. Ben Galley
  3. Aggie Villaneuva
  4. Susanne Lakin
  5. Mark Coker
  6. Self Publishing Review
  7. Dan Poynter
  8. BooksJustBooks.com
  9. Joan Stewart
  10. Pixel of Ink
  11. Book Bub
  12. Jon Reed

My sincere and humble thanks go to those Alliance members who nominated this site. I work hard to provide content that is useful, relevant, and timely, and this honor suggests that I’m on the right track.
