AuthorSpark founder and author Nigel Jay Cooper has been nominated for the Blogger’s Author award in the Book Party Awards.
Nice in itself but given what we do – ie help authors to build their profiles and connect with people online – it’s nice still.
Here’s the reason for the nomination:
“These writers have been nominated by book influencers not just for their wonderful novels, but for their engagement with readers on social media, and showing appreciation and gratitude for the amount of time and work that goes into book blogging.”
