I will be giving out awards for the Novels and Short Stories that I read and reviewed during 2014 and the poems I've read! There are fourteen categories, and each work is only eligible to win in one category. Only the books I read or reviewed on Cody's blog in 2014 are eligible to win. Any story contained in an anthology will be considered a Short Story for purposes of this award, and will be considered separately from the anthology itself. If you would like a chance to win, you must submit your book for review no later than midnight PST on Sunday, December 21, 2014.
In addition to the category awards, each book will automatically be entered to win "Timmy’s Top Book of 2014" and "Best Cover Design"!
