I want to take a moment to enjoy what I'm feeling tonight. My heart is filled with gratitude for everyone that made all of the nominees feel special in the last couple months.
Unlike traditional awards shows that carry more romance industry notoriety, like the RITA, the Angie awards is a fan-based platform to increase awareness of the growth of the Multicultural/Interracial/African-American romance genres. These reader-based awards serve to remind writers their fans appreciate their efforts.
Wow! What a night! My mind is still reeling. I was surprised by some of the winners and the nomination letters were a nice touch.
I'm humbled that readers made their voices heard with this platform. They reminded these authors that their talent is noticed and enjoyed by many readers. So I must take a moment to say 'I thank you for taking the time to bring these special authors to our attention.'
We are grateful be able to give readers a place to acknowledge the authors that entertained them. And we hope to inspire all of the authors to continue to nurture their fan bases.
