And the Winner Is...Book Boost Blogger of the Year Announced

Congrats to Letty James!  
Our 2012 Blogger of the Year!

Letty's post from February 2012 was selected based on numerical scores from THREE "celebrity" judges this year.  Meet the judges down below.

Letty is half of the talented writing duo with author Beth Henderson (shout out to Beth).  Please join me in congratulating Letty on her win.  As the 2012 Book Boost Blogger of the Year, Letty will receive the following prizes:

1. A year of FREE cover ad promotion at the Book Boost;
2. The top right hand column ad spot ALL YEAR; and
3. A custom designed trophy (for bragging rights, of course)!

Woot!  Squee!

Much appreciation to all the nominees and the voting was very close indeed.  Big hugs to fellow nominees Jami Gray, Susan C. Muller, Anna Alexander, and Meggan Connors.

And now...please meet our judges:

Judge #1 (and #1 in my heart):  Kerri's husband!

This is the man who must live with me day in and day out.  Listen to my chatter about the publishing industry, the trials of the writer's life, and the challenges of working at home with 3 little ones in tow.

He brings a unique perspective to the mix and is one of my biggest fans.  Here's what he had to say about the winning entry...

"Fast paced and humorous."

Judge #2:  Maya Jax (our 2010 Blogger of the Year)

This judge knows what it takes to win this award.  As our inaugural winner, she made me laugh until I cried with her debut novel, Escapades of Romantically Challenged Me.

I'm looking forward to featuring Maya here in April and finding out what she has been up to lately.  Thanks to this judge for her time and graciousness.  Here's what she had to say about the winning entry...

Judge #3:  Leslie Langtry (our 2011 Blogger of the Year)

This judge is our reigning title holder and pens the Bombay Family of Assassins series for your reading pleasure.  Who wouldn't love a hilarious hit woman?  You must check it out now.  Or else!

Leslie will return to chat with us in April and I can't wait to hear what she has next in store for us.  Thanks to Leslie for your comments and scores.  Here's what she had to say about the winning entry...

"This was my hands-down favorite.  She had a rapport with the reader."

So, until next time...keep writing those killer posts and YOU may be the next Blogger of the Year.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Now, let's see if I can get Judge #1 off the golf course and into my arms...
