The Awesome Indies is getting harder to get onto, the standards are going up and the requirements for the Seal of Excellence are very high. Here’s what one of the reviewers said about what makes a book worthy of the Seal of Excellence.
“When I read a story, I want that movie playing in my head.To me, reading a fantastic book is like watching an incredible dancer. There are good dancers who perform the music with wonderful technique and accuracy, and I enjoy watching them (4 stars). But the dancer who causes me to live the music in such a way that I don’t realize I’m watching is the true artist (5 stars). An author who draws me into the story and lets me experience it through the actions and dialogue of the characters so that I have a sense of loss and maybe a little regret when I re-enter the real world–well, that is the author who writes one hell of a book.
Lethal Inheritance does that perfectly.”
Apparently, Demon’s Grip does as well, because I just got awarded a Seal of Excellence for it. Here’s the link to the Award Announcement on the Awesome Indies
Now I can put a shiny gold symbol on the cover.
