x Stacy and Daisy Awards 3[1904]

Welcome to the 1st Annual Stacy and Daisy Awards for 2017! One week ago we announced our dozen nominees, and now comes that fateful moment when the winner is finally revealed. I would like to note, though, that it was a tough choice, and just because we picked one book above the others does not in any way mean that the other nominees were not wonderful and deserving of awards themselves.

Usually we will have two awards, the Stacy Award and the Daisy Award. This year, however, it is unanimous. We both agreed that this one book was the best book of 2017.

And now… *drum roll please*… THE WINNER OF BOTH THE STACY AND DAISY AWARDS:

Sunken Gold, The_preview (1)

Joseph Williams

for his five-star book, The Sunken Gold

We extend a hearty congratulations to the winner and all the others that made it onto our lists, as well as all the authors that gave us the honor of sharing their books with us in 2017, and we eagerly look forward to all the amazing books we will be reading, authors we will be interviewing, and giveaways we will be sharing in 2018!
