2014 eFestival of Words Nominations

I'm way late to the party but better late than never, I suppose. In May, the eFestival of Words Best of Independent eBook nominations for 2014 were announced. I was super thrilled to see so many talented and deserving authors on the list this year who also happen to be friends or acquaintances.



As you may or may not know, the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards is a "peer-nominated awards program designed to highlight the best of the independent community from both indie authors and small, independent presses." They are part of the eFestival of Words Virtual Book Fair which takes place each August and is sponsored by Bards and Sages Publishing.

  6. Congratulations! Not too certain, what "Shamylaned" means either - I've heard the old Cockney Londoner's phrase 'to shymay' or shyster meaning to fool - might be related?
