After the untimely death of the previous Awesome Indies coordinator, Brian Sfinas, I took over the administration, rebuilt the website at http://awesomeindies.net and relaunched Awesome Indies as Awesome Indies Book Awards.
As Awesome Indies Book Awards does not charge a submission fee but relies on donations to meet expenses, we are not able to pay our assessors. Perhaps it is time to reconsider our submission and award process, so I would welcome any ideas or suggestions you may have. Ideally, this appeal will encourage a plethora of editors, proofreaders, publishing professionals or readers to join our assessment team! If you would like to be considered, please apply at http://awesomeindies.net/assessors-needed/
