Healing Love has been nominated for the “best Amish Fiction” book of 2012 for Christian Retailing’s “Best” Awards. Winners will be announced at the ICRS convention in June.
Nominees get exposure in Christian Retailing Magazine and will be scrutinized by retailers and other judges. Until this year the award was called “Retailer’s Choice” but this year they’ve expanded the judging to include others.
I have no idea on the competition yet, but it will be available soon. Whitaker House had one nonfiction book win a few years back (My Time in Heavenby Richard Sigmund) and Tender Vow by Sharlene MacLaren received an Honorable Mention (3rd place) two years ago.
