I’ve just returned from the EVVY Awards and it is late Saturday night, but I wanted to report on this evening’s festivities by scheduling this blog posting for publication early Sunday morning. I mentioned some details about the EVVY Awards in a previous posting, and even more details can be found on the Self Publishing News blog by clicking here.
Since it’s so late, I’m just going to mention the title, author, category and “place” (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) and then a more detailed blog posting will follow later this week, along with a press release, both of which will probably appear on the Self Publishing News blog rather than here. That future blog posting will include cover images of the winners along with links to their respective author webpages at Outskirts Press.
But for those of you reading this blog, you receive the news as early as possible. The only way to get it faster would have been to join us for the event in Denver, Colorado, March 27th, 2010. Seven of my OP colleagues joined me, including Jeanine, Karl, Shirley, Trinity, Debra, Caroline, and Ellen. A photograph of us will most likely accompany the future posting, as well, so you can see the awards themselves.
Without further ado…

Congratulations to our award-winning self-publishing authors, all of whom will also be notified personally. Framed award plaques will be mailed to the winners listed above within the week along with some promotional materials to market their award-winning books.
