SPFBO: Round 1 Winner

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!

  1. Oooh, this is such a lovely idea! Hopefully I’ll be able to join the next time around and be part of this. It’s always nice to try out something that has been under the radar and find something glorious about it. SFF is such a genre that offers so many possibilities and ideas, too. ‘Grats to the winner!

  2. Thanks for taking on this rather daunting task! I know you’ve learned so much from it, and as one of the writers who alllllllmost made it up to being reviewed by you, I’ve learned a lot about being patient as well. Plus I’ve added some new titles to my own reading list, hearing what you think of other books! Thanks!
