B.R.A.G. Medallion for “Bluff”

Bluff with BRAG stickerI’m super pleased to announce that the detective novel Bluff, which features your truly, was recently awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion!

The B.R.A.G. Medallion website is operated by indieBRAG, LLC, a private organization consisting of a large group of readers located throughout the United States and in ten other countries. B.R.A.G. stands for Book Readers Appreciation Group, and “indie” refers to self- or independently-published. IndieBRAG’s mission is to “discover new and talented self-published authors and help them give their work the attention and recognition it deserves.”

According to their website, all ebooks brought to the attention of indieBRAG, LLC are subjected to a rigorous selection process. There is an initial screening to ensure that the work meets certain minimum standards of quality and content. If it passes this preliminary assessment, it is then read by members drawn from their global reader group. They judge the book on a comprehensive list of criteria, including

-plot
-characters
-dialogue
-writing style
-copy editing
-cover and interior layout.

One final factor is whether or not they would recommend it to their best friend.

On average, only 10% of the books they consider are awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion and  presented on their website. So if you want to support independently published authors and be assured of getting a quality publication, check out the BRAG site for your next read.
