Every March, the awesome Jane and Sarah from Dear Author and Smart Bitches Trashy Books put together a tournament unlike any tournament EVER in the history of humankind. It’s the Dear Author Bitchery Writing Award for Hella Authors – or DABWAHA for short.
They break the romance genre down into eight categories and they start off with eight books in each category. The only thing is, this year they have announced seven finalists per category, and they’re leaving the eighth up to readers to nominate.
The books have to have been published in 2013, so although I’ve gotten involved in DABWAHA as a reader before, this is the first time I’m eligible as an author. Friends, I would LOVE it if you nominated one of my books for DABWAHA.
If you enjoyed either of the books I had published last year, here’s what you do:
1. Go to the DABWAHA nomination form.
2. Under “Contemporary Romance Nomination” write the title Knowing The Score, my name (Latham, Kat) and this ISBN: 9781426895920
3. Under “Novella-Length Romance” write the title Mine Under The Mistletoe, my name (Latham, Kat) and this ISBN: 9781426897603
4. Submit the form and go tweet about it with the hashtag #DABWAHA!
Nominations close on the 15th, so make sure you get your nominations in by this Saturday!
Thank you so much for your help! I’ll be back tomorrow to announce the winners of my Contemporaries to Covet giveaway and the winners of my Playing It Close giveaway. (Yes, that means those giveaways are still open until the end of the day, so go enter if you haven’t already!)
Done and done! These were both such good books so I think you have a great chance to make it far in this competition. Good luck —
Thanks so much, Suz!!
