Fast forward to now - year 2017 - here we are once again. This time, it's not only for one category but two! If you're a friend of mine or follows me in any of my social media accounts, I'm sure that you've seen me post about this at least once. Maybe some people were getting tired of seeing those posts of mine but I'm not doing this just for myself.
The reason why I posting about this is because I want other people to discover all these books that were written by my clients - who are also such great friends of mine. I know that their books deserve to be read a lot of people around the world. I'm not saying this just because they're my friends or clients. I'm saying this because I've read their books and personally, I do love them and I'm hoping you'll love them too. If you didn't, then that's fine. We all have our own preference and I respect that. The only thing I wanted was to reach people who haven't read these that liked the same type of books because I'm sure that they'll enjoy it as much as I did.
If you've seen my previous post about JABBIC 2016, you'll see that we entered 4 different books for 4 different categories. When the voting for the Reader's Choice started, I saw all the entries for the categories that we're part of. and to be honest, part of me thought that we won't make it. There were so many great covers out there and being in the same contest with the artists who created them - it's already an honor for me. Never in my entire life have I imagined to be doing what I'm doing now so how much more being in a contest with all these talented artists around the world?
"5 years ago, 10 years ago, none of these ever crossed my mind and I'm grateful to be here."
This year - huge thank you to each and every one of you who helped us vote - we were able to make it to the 2nd place in the Single Title/Mainstream category for the Grand Prize and won the Sexiest Cover for the Reader's Choice. I know that if it weren't for your help, we wouldn't make it so it's all thanks to YOU. It doesn't matter if you voted once or voted every time you can. YOU are appreciated and I want to thank YOU!
You're one of the reasons why we always strive to get better at what we do. We want you to look at better covers and read better stories. We enjoy what we do and we want you guys to feel the same whenever you see or read our works. If it weren't for you guys supporting our art, we wouldn't last.
Once again, thank you so, so, so much to each and every one of you! Until the next one!
