What a wonderful morning to announce the nominees for the AMB Ovation Awards (The Angies). I’m so sorry if I botched anyone’s name or novel title. I wasn’t scheduled to do the presentation but our velvet-voiced announcer Isaiah Evans came down with a bad cold. Please accept my sincere apologies but my attempt was done in one single take a little after 12AM this morning.
This September each of the author nominees will be asked to submit a ‘thank you statement’ that will be accessible from ‘The Angies page’ so their readers can be acknowledged for their support. The nominees can also explain how their story came to life and why they worked so hard to see it in print.
The recipients of the Visionary Award and the Academy of AA/IR/Multicultural Fellows will have their biographies listed along with anything thing they wish to say about the African-American, Interracial, and Multicultural romance genres.
In October, the Academy will be seeking 'The Angie acceptance speeches' of all of the nominees. Your speech will be read in December by one of the loyal readers that nominated you for your award. This will be a nice treat for you and an once-in-a-lifetime moment for them. (Click here for a list of the nominees.)

Congratulations to all the nominees!
