As well as writing, running, cooking, making posters with my Photoshop and doing zillions of other things that need doing each day, I also run the exciting site, Chill with a Book!
I set up, Chill with a Book for authors to showcase their books and for readers to find great page turning reads. With over 60,000 hits on the site, Chill with a Book is moving into a brand new and exciting area for indie authors and small indie publishers. This exciting area is Chills very own Award!
Chill already has a team of secret readers who evaluate books - they do NOT write reviews - instead they determine a books eligibility for the Chill with a Book Award against a five point check list. Books must receive a resound yes against each question, however if the book is border line, a reader must then mark each question between 1 and 5. If a book receives 20 points or more it will receive the Chill with a Book Award.
1. Were the characters strong and engaging?
2. Was the book well written?
3. Did the plot have you turning the page to find out what happened next?
4. Was the ending satisfying?
5. Have you told your friends about it?
Saturday 17th September sees the first two Awards announced. It is an exciting time at Chill and also for indie authors. The announcements of all Awards will take place over at Chill with a Book.
