Submissions are juried and then judged by a panel. As a rule, fifty percent of those works are then passed on to a reader group, hence the title, Book Reader Appreciation Group or B.R.A.G.
Forty percent of those submitted are winnowed down to ten percent as deserving of a Medallion.
We are pleased and humbled to be included in this exclusive group whose works are recognized for their excellence. Here's a link. . . .
When there, click on the "home" link to find our novel among those recent inductees. Works are judged on plot, writing style, characters, copy editing, dialogue, and cover/interior layout.
One final criterion readers apply? "Would I recommend this book to friends or family?"
