Christopher Pickert | 8 comments Hello,
Please add an award for my book "Year of the Amphibian":
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

The award is:
Finalist (general fiction category) - Eric Hoffer Award 2019

http://www.hofferaward.com/Eric-Hoffe...

I read that you consider finalists "nominees", but I'm not sure if that is the same for the Hoffer award or not.

Thank you!


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 5216 comments Done. Yes, all award non-winners on GR are nominees.

Christopher Pickert | 8 comments Thank you Elizabeth! Much appreciated.

After I made this request I received two more awards, but I'll start a new thread for those.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 5216 comments You can use this thread if you wish.

Christopher Pickert | 8 comments Oh good, in that case:

Finalist in two categories of the 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards:

- General Fiction / Novel (over 80,000 words)
- First Novel (over 90,000 words)

However, while they have emailed recipients and encouraged social media posting, they said they will be making their own announcements later this month (maybe next week?). So we are in a gray area at the moment. I can always wait if you think that's best.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 5216 comments Yes, I would prefer to have a link to the website when it's announced. Let me know.
