Calderwood's EPPIE Finalists!

I'm so proud of Calderwood Books' EPPIE finalists!!

There is even a mention of us in this industry blog:

"...Hundreds of e-writers must have been cheering or groaning as the news filtered into the inboxes of their PCs throughout the world. E-mails Thursday were telling them whether they were finalists in the e-bookdom’s high-stakes contest, the Eppie awards. Just who among the six-hundred contestants–anyone can enter–had survived the first cut?

As I scanned down the finalist lists, I saw a lot of heavy hitters in the e-biz (Ellora’s Cave, Samhain Publishing, Loose Id), but also smaller new houses, like Calderwood Books–which, strengthened by gifted new authors, had made strong showings. I also saw big New York houses in the ranks, such as Harlequin and Silhouette. Sylvia Day at Kensington Books made the finals last year. "

Congratulations to:
Attack of the Killer Prom Dresses (YA)
North Star (Fantasy)
The Falling Down Man (Mystery)

If you haven't read them, go grab a copy from Calderwood Books!

Congrats Sam!!

Kensington in the finals? Harlequin? I suppose they are dually released as ebooks, but I thought eppies were for books that were e first...or would that be exclusionary? (which is something I know epubs are trying to avoid doing)

Thank you all for the congratulations! I'm thrilled, and the authors are too!
Seeley - I think that Kensington and Harlequin must have an e-book line now, in order to submit the books, I believe that you're right - they have to be published as e-books first.
