Dancing With the Dead has won a CIPA EVVY MERIT AWARD in the 22nd annual competition. So please allow me a moment’s celebration.
Here’s how CIPA describes the competition:
“The CIPA EVVY awards is one of the longest-running book awards competition on the Indie publishing scene. It is sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA), along with the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation (ELF).
The CIPA EVVYS are open to all types of independently published books. The EVVYS recognize achievement across a diverse range of genres and technical categories. It is international with entries from all over the world, including England, Belgium, South Africa, Russia and Dubai.
The judging is tough—the way a book competition should be. Judges are selected through CIPA’s competition judging qualification process and include teachers, business leaders, authors, critics, editors, readers and others.
CIPA EVVY entries are judged and scored according to established minimum acceptable criteria. Only those entries that attain the minimum acceptable score become finalists with the highest scores in each category used by the judges to help determine each category’s winners, if any.”
