Though I haven’t reviewed all the books on my shortlist for the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off, I have read through them, and after some deliberation, I figured it was time to announce the winner from my batch.
Barbara J Webb’s City of Burning Shadows!
Congrats to Webb for being passed to the second round, to be read and reviewed by all the other blogs participating in the challenge! (My review of the book is here, if you haven’t read it yet.)
And many thanks to everyone who submitted their novels for this challenge. I enjoyed reading them, and they helped me understand a lot more about agenting, editing, and writing. I appreciate being given this chance, and I hope that, even if your books didn’t get passed to the second round, the publicity from the challenge resulted in at least a few more sales for you all!
I’m looking forward to round 2 of the challenge, and seeing all the books chosen as winners from everyone else’s batches! Stay tuned for more awesome self-published books in the future!
