You’ve heard of the Academy Awards. The Emmys, Tonys, and Golden Globes. But you may not have heard of The Biggest Bow Wow of them all:
The Kimber Awards.
What? You haven’t heard of this prestigious honor? Maybe that’s cuz I, Kimber, just made it up.
Well, okay. Mom helped. A little. She lobbied for “World’s Most Super Duper, Seriously Splendid, Extra Excellent, Terrifically Talented, Genuine Genius-y, and All-Around Awesome Author Awards.”
I nixed that. After all. Someone has to be the adult in the room. (Well, okay again. It was mostly me. But Mom helped a bit.)
Where was I? Oh yeah. The Kimber Awards. …
Our Highest Award
The Kimber Award is our highest award. It’s reserved for authors who are four paws above the average kennel. They’re not only wonderfully talent authors. They also:
- Go the extra mile to reach out.
- Like and Comment.
- Share links.
- Ask questions.
- Send us those email thingies.
- Let us know when new books are coming out.
- Follow up.
- Say thank you.
These authors actually read and follow our submission guidelines. (You wouldn’t believe how many people don’t, Toots.)
So, Mom and I wanted to let you know which authors made the Kimber cut for all-around awesomeness. These seven authors qualify as some of our favorite folks on the planet. (Author photos from respective web sites. Links to books reviewed are included as applicable.)
Our 2022 Kimber Award Winners (in no particular order):
Wendy @ The Bashful Bookworm: Wendy is a book blogger par excellence. She can always be counted upon to provide insightful comments and an encouraging word. Be sure to drop by her blog. You’ll be glad you did.
Your “one-stop shopping” destination for inspiration and insight.
Rick Rogers: Challenge, adventure, and loads of laughter all skillfully rolled into Rick’s ever-engaging memoir, Walking Home: Common Sense and Other Misadventures on the Pacific Crest Trail.
