The Cybil Awards or Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards, are held every year. This year I am pleased to announce that I will be a returning first round panelist in the Sci-fi/Fantasy Middle Grade Category. These awards are a great opportunity for book bloggers to get together and recognize the most outstanding books of the year in each category.
My fellow panelists include:
Anamaria Anderson of Books Together
Gwenda Bond of Shaken & Stirred
Aaron Maurer of Coffee for the Brain
Nicole Signoretta of Booked Up
Charlotte Taylor of Charlotte's Library
Karen Yingling of Ms. Yingling Reads
There are so many sci-fi/fantasy books put out each year that the category is split between Middle Grade and Young Adult. The first round judges will sift through over a hundred books and narrow the selection down to those 6-7 that are most representative of the category they were nominated for. From there the second round judges will pick the winner from the nominated books.
Nominations come in via the public and are open until October 15, 2010 at 11:59 PM EST. As long as the book was published between October 16, 2009 and October 15, 2010 it's eligible. If you have a book that you feel should be nominated for any of the categories feel free to nominate the book here.
