The 2015 BigAl's Books and Pals Readers' Choice Nominees



Posted by KAREN WOJCIK BERNER

I'm happy to announce that A Groovy Kind of Love has been nominated in the Women's Fiction/Chick Lit category of the 2015 Readers' Choice Awards over at the awesome BigAl's Books and Pals review blog.

Voting started on Saturday, 3/14, and will continue until Saturday, 3/28. You could win a ton of books and even a $75 Amazon gift card if you head over to BigAl's Books and Pals to vote. If you were to vote for A Groovy Kind of Love, I'd be eternally grateful. Just sayin'.

Here's what the Pals had to say.

"In the twelve months ending February 28th, 2015, BigAl and the Pals will have received over 3,000 review requests and published more than 300 new book reviews. From those, we chose the books we felt stood out from the pack as exceptional examples of Indie (self-published and small press) writing and divided them into fourteen categories."
