Thank you, Big Al & Pals, for all your hard work promoting indie writers. This contest is always fun to participate in and it gives me super ideas for new books to read.

A heartfelt congratulations to Susan Stuckey in the Fantasy category. I know your story was up against many other great fantasy stories, but there is something very special about Stormhawk's Warning.

BigAl and everyone at Books And Pals, I'd like to thank you very much. Running a contest like this takes a lot of time and effort. I appreciate all you do for Indie Authors.

I'd like to thank all the readers who voted for FOLLOWING HIS HEART. I am humbled and grateful to add the title of Readers' Choice Best Romance Award to my accomplishments.

Another thank you to all of the readers who took their time to vote for and support an author.

A special 'Thank You!' to those who voted for Stormhawk's Warning (fantasy category). I never expected to win and I was totally shocked!!

Thank you

Thank you Big Al and Book Pals! I am thrilled that my book, EVOLUTION OF A WINE DRINKER, received the honor of Best Humor Book! I so appreciate all the hard, great work that you and your reviewers do for indie writers in general and comedy book people in specificity. It's no joke that you are important to writers and readers alike. Thank you for all you do and for this award! I raise a wine glass to you!
Cheers!

Echoing the praise of others for BigAl and his pals for all the hard work. Congrats to all the winners (ysy, Donna Fasano!) - and to Emelle Gamble for beating me - er, I mean, winning in Women's Fiction. I have Molly Harper in my kindle!

Congratulations to all the winners. Many thanks to BigAl and Pals for the nomination. :) Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners! Especially Kelly Stone Gamble, author of "They Call Me Crazy," winner in the same category as my book. Kelly, after reading the synopsis and taking a peek inside, I've got your book on my Amazon Wish List and I'm going to recommend it to my book club. I've read and loved Laurie Boris's "Playing Charlie Cool" in the same category. During the contest I also added books that looked like something I'd be interested in. The quality of indie publishing is every bit as good (and many times better) than what the big guys are putting out, no question! So a huge thanks to Big Al's and Pals for their support and for encouragement. It sounds cliché, but it truly was an honor to be nominated, and the nominee badge will go proudly on my website.
