For the first time, the panel of first round readers for the Cybils Awards includes someone from the other side of the pond–Valinora Troy, a writer from Ireland (it’s great to have you, Valinora!). Now that most of the review copies publishers send us panelists are ebooks, the books are more accessible even if they aren’t out over there yet.
That being said, there are plenty of books that released in the UK/Ireland almost simultaneously, or before coming out here in the US/Canada! For readers there, here are some that haven’t been nominated yet, that might be books you love and want to champion by nominating them! A great way to warm an author’s heart, and to help books find new readers!
You have until the end of October 15 to nominate, and here’s where you go to do so!
These are the ones I know about (feel free to add more in the comments!)
