A few of us that have been planning this event thought that maybe since this is an indie convention, maybe we should do an indie awards, live in person.
Not the type of awards you’re used to where they pick the best author in their given genre, but instead we reward the people that help us get noticed in the first place. We want to reward the authors, readers and pimpers that go above and beyond to get their favorite authors out there, because without them, we wouldn’t get very far on our own.
It’s just in the planning stages at the moment, but I am thinking it might be a great way to kick off the after party. Before everyone starts drinking. =D
More details to come, but if you know some amazing pimpers, authors, or readers that go out of their way to help the community, please share this with them. They should get to be treated like royalty for a day.
(Obviously we can only give the awards to people that attend, so get your tickets now before the prices go up!)
We will start formulating a plan to get contestants organized in the coming days. Again, can’t wait to see you all!
