So, you've written a novel. For whatever reason - and there could be many - you have decided to self-publish.
That doesn't make you less of a writer; that makes you an Indie writer. Which means you can submit your book to IndieBRAG.
What does this mean? Well, as their mission statement says, they aim to discover 'talented self-published authors and help them give their work the attention and recognition it deserves.'
When your book is submitted, it will go through a rigorous process during which the IndieBRAG readers will read and assess your book, checking it against a list of criteria.
Given that not all books are accepted, those authors who then go on to receive the BRAG Medallion can say that their book has been held up to scrutiny and can wear the badge with pride. The BRAG Medallion is a mark of quality.
And it doesn't stop there. Authors are invited to write articles for the IndieBRAG blog, there are opportunities for interviews and now there is a new initiative.
Every two weeks, Indie author and champion Helen Hollick will be presenting interviews with characters from Medallion-winning books.
The first of these Novel Conversations will be published on Tuesday 4 September 2018 and will feature a character from one of the books of multi BRAG winner Anna Belfrage, Matthew Graham, from her award-winning time-slip series, The Graham Saga.
And look out for a conversation with a certain Æthelflæd, Lady of the Mercians on October 12 😉
