nominations open for BBA9

Sharing a blog from The Bi Writers Association . They are now accepting nominations for the 2020 Bisexual Book Awards. Deadline for nominations is December 2, 2020.

I’ve been both a nominee and judge and can sincerely vouch for how seriously judges take these. Note: there is a per book fee to enter, but ANYONE can nominate a book so if you have a crowd-pleaser, get a bunch of them together and crowd-source your entry fee.

The awards are presented annually in New York City, usually on the same weekend as the Lambda Awards. 2020’s awards (for books published in 2019) was, as you might expect, virtual. Check out videos on Youtube.
