WOW!!! Looking forward to the panels this year, utterly SHOCKED I've been nominated for Author of the Year. Don't really feel like I deserve that, but wow, that's just . . .my face hurts right now okay from smiling too hard! 

This was a good week to get such good news!

Thanks Julie for running this every year.

As long as the face is not cracking, you're fine. Smile away. You deserve it.  ;D

Thanks Julie for running this award event. It's such a great way to showcase indie books and it has all the gravitas and prestige equivalent to all the awards that shut out indie books. I wish it is more well-known by the publishing world and the public at-large.

Good luck to all the nominees!!!!

I've just seen two of my books on your list of nominees, Julie, so thank you so much for that. Fingers crossed and all that.

Wow!  Shocked, stunned, and utterly humbled by the nomination.  I'm rarely at a loss for words but...just wow.  Thanks so much for the honor, Julie and whoever put forth my work.

That is the great thing (and biggest problem) with the competition. You learn about all of these great books you may have missed otherwise!

Any nominee that wants the nominee logo with a transparent background, just email me at efestivalofwords@bardsandsages.com and I will make sure you get it.

Actually, I don't have anything to do with the selections. Everyone is done by ballot. All we do is validate the ballots and make sure they are accurate.

Oops...I knew that once upon a time. At any rate, it is wonderful of you to put so much hard work into an endeavor that makes many people so happy and encouraged. :)

Well thanks for that. Both my books have turned up on the finalists list, best romance and best historical. So, if anyone feels inclined to vote for them, I shall have no objection.  ;D
