Alliance Award 2017
The Alliance Award is the new Reader's Choice award given by the Realm Makers, the Christian Writers Speculative Fiction Conference Realm. The main criteria for nomination, aside from length and publication date, are that it is speculative fiction written by a Christian author.
The voting process is interesting. Voters must have read at least two of the nominated books, and must prove it by submitting a starred review which explains why they picked that rating.
And two CLFA members had their books nominated by their readers for this award!
Congratulations to Domino by Kia Heavey and Star Realms: Rescue Run by Jon Del Arroz. And the very best of luck to both of these great books!
Domino, which is one of my Top Ten Reads of 2016.
And here is my blog post about Jon Del Arroz, who is one of the the writers who got on my banned books list after he was blacklisted by the left-leaning SF community for supporting Trump.
