Chill with a Book Awards for Independent Authors

January 2018 - Newsletter

Happy New Year!

January 2018

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and found time throughout all the festivities to chill for a moment or two with some me time.

It is hard to believe we have entered another new year, to me it seems we were all celebrating the beginning of 2017 only a few days ago. Time really does fly or are we just so busy we don't notice it?

2017 was a great year for Chill Awards with many books being added to the Award Programme from most genres... romance, murder / mystery, adventure, historical, sagas, thrillers, YA and much more. Whilst many Awards were made this year, I am afraid not all books received Chill's prestigious Readers' Award. Having to inform an author their book has not received the Award is one of the most difficult things to do and I promise it never gets any easier no matter how many emails sent.

During the year more Awards have been added to the Award Programme... 

PB Special Award 
Book Cover of the Month.

In this bumper newsletter All Awards for December and Year End Awards for 2017 are announced below. 

Here we go with all the Awards... phew so many!

Applause please for all these fabulous Award honourees

Book of the Year 2017

I think you will agree with me each and everyone of these books and authors deserves their awards.

The key stone to Chill Awards is its readers and READERS are "always" NEEDED!
Chill can never have enough readers... 

If you love to read, why not read for Chill Awards?
