The Whitney Awards

by Rebecca Talley

It's hard to believe, but we only have one more month left of 2010. I remember all the fuss just before we welcomed the year 2000, or Y2K, here. Time sure flies by, doesn't it? The older I get, the faster is seems to fly by.

As we wind down this year, don't forget to nominate your favorite books by LDS authors for a Whitney Award. The Whitney Awards were created to recognize writing excellence by LDS authors and the program has continued to grow since its inception. In order for a book to be nominated, it does not have to be LDS, but the author must be LDS. Each year books geared toward the national market are nominated and win. For a complete list of eligible books please visit LDS Publisher.

To nominate a book for a Whitney Award please visit The Whitney Awards.

We have some excellent books written by our very own blog team members. Remember, each book needs at least five nominations to be considered. Make sure to nominate your favorites--I have. This is a great opportunity to recognize LDS authors.

Visit today and nominate your favorite books!

Thanks for the reminder, Rebecca. I still needed to nominate my favorites. Although my own book is eligible for 2010, the first wave of readers isn't going to finish it until mid-December. Talk about time pressure to get the Whitney noms in!
