Working with K’Anne is such great fun, no idea is dismissed out of hand, everything is explored, everything is for the benefit of the authors. on behalf of the readers and the more fun we have doing it, the better ! And thats how she came to create the Lesfic Bard Awards.
What makes this such a unique award for authors to enter and win is the Triple blind judging system that the executive committee have chosen to employ. This UNIQUE system of reviewing books means that the judges don’t know the author, the book title OR the subject matter. AND no one knows who the judges are !!!
There’s no risk of authors or readers currying favours to influence the panel or the award. Its a high integrity system. Completely FAIR and UNBIASED. It’ a great idea which reflects the morals and ethics of K’Anne herself. Just to reinforce this, she isn’t submitting any of her own books or part of the judging panel. This helps ensure no conflict of interest.
I’m really excited about these awards and what I’m hoping they’ll come to represent for authors and readers. There’s been great interest in the award already since it’s been announced, particularly when the trophy was shown !
If you’d like to know more, there are a number of ways you can get involved with the Awards.
- If you’re a reader, and we mean a KEEN reader, then you might be just the person we’re looking for to be part of the judging panel. Just think, you get to read great fiction, from talented authors, for free !!! How cool is that ? Just follow the link to join in !!!
- If you’re an author, we’d love to have you enter and be part of the awards. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your book and if you’re lucky enough to win, the way in which the award is judged makes a real statement about the quality of your work. You can enter by clicking on the link here. Then make sure you share the fact you’ve entered !!
- If you’re a sponsor (hey every scheme needs sponsorship !) the awards give you a nice way of giving something to an undervalued section of society and associating your brand with some of the best that lesbian fiction has to offer. Get in touch with the committee by clicking on the following link and marking your mail “sponsorship”.
Can’t wait !!!
