Recently I was delighted to learn that the IndieBRAG group has awarded their Medallion to The Reputed Wife.
My historical novel about Herodias Long has now joined Rebel Puritan as a BRAG winner!
So, what's BRAG, and why should readers care about their Medallion?
In 2012, fifteen million books were published in the United States. No, that is not a misprint. That's 15,000,000 books published last year, most of them self-published.
How is a reader to find a really great book among those 15,000,000 works clamoring for attention? Big-time reviewers like the N.Y. Times will not review self-published books, so they can easily go unnoticed. Amazon and Goodreads reviews can be inflated.
BRAG is the Book Readers Appreciation Group, and their reviewers seek outstanding indie books produced by self-publishers. This group provides readers with "an independent, broad-based and reader-centric source" of reviews. If BRAG reviewers give a book their Medallion of approval, you can bet that it's a worthwhile read!
I couldn't be prouder that both of my books about Herodias Long have earned a BRAG Medallion, and I urge you to check out BRAG's website via the link below. You will find outstanding fiction for adults and children, non-fiction, and also my own Rebel Puritan and The Reputed Wife. Happy reading!
