And the winners are ...



In the twelve months ending February 28th, 2014, BigAl and the Pals will have received over 1,400 books to consider for review and published 368 book reviews. From those, we chose the books we felt stood out from the pack as exceptional examples of Indie (self-published and small press) writing and divided them into thirteen categories.

For 10 days we collected votes from readers with more than 1,100 people voting and we gave away some great prizes. (Giveaway winners are displayed on the Rafflecoptor for on the voting page if you're interested.)

Congratulations to all the authors, both nominees and the winners. We think they're all worth a read.
