The LDSstorymakers sponsor the Whitney Awards each year. The awards are for LDS authors in several categories including:
General Fiction, Romance, Suspense/Mystery, Speculative Fiction, Youth Fiction, Historical, Best Novel of the Year, and Best Novel by a New Author.
Last month I interviewed one person nominated for one of the awards this year, Heather B. Moore for her book "Abinidi". Since that time I have met another nominee for one of the awards this year, Sarah M. Eden for her book "Seeking Persephone". I met her at an ANWA meeting. I've heard really great things about it and loved this trailer she had on her blog. Check it out. Also be sure to check out the other finalists for the 2008 Whitney Awards here
Afterall, as mormon mommy writers we need to support our peers as much as possible. Because it will soon be us publishing books, making book trailers, and winning awards!
