Be a Whitney Sponsor!
By now, I hope you've all heard the announcement of the Whitney Awards, a new awards program designed to celebrate and encourage excellence in fiction by LDS authors.
The LDS Booksellers Association Convention, scheduled for mid-August, is fast approaching. This is the biggest event of the year for LDS publishers and retailers, and this is the time when we need to roll out the Whitney Awards in a big way to attract the attention of industry professionals.
In order to do this, we need funds. If you feel the Whitney Awards are a valuable program that will benefit LDS literature, we would appreciate your help. Donations of any size will be gratefully accepted. Even a donation of a couple of dollars can buy a handful of convention buttons.
Donations can be made via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org or via snail mail to:
PO Box 468
Orem UT 84059-0468
You donations will go a long way toward helping launch the Whitneys this August and making this program a success. For details about the Whitney Awards, including the official rules, FAQ, and a nomination form where you can nominate your favorite books released in 2007, visit the Whitney website at www.whitneyawards.com.
Thank you so much!
