Announcing The 2020 Swoon Awards

Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Welcome to the very first annual Swoon Awards!

Are you exhausted from hearing about voting and elections? How about something a little more fun?

We (Amber, Lynell, Ari & Nick) have been working hard behind the scenes, setting up for these awards. The idea for The Swoon Awards came from a place of frustration at the lack of transparency and options in the Goodreads Choice Awards, particularly when it comes to romance. Romance is one of the most lucrative publishing genres and we think it deserves its own awards. We hope that you are as excited as us!

On this website, you will find all the necessary information. In the AWARD OVERVIEW tab, you will find a description of the process, the different categories you will be voting in, and the timeline. In the RULES & REGULATIONS tab, you will also find the list of nominations and voting rules. Feel free to take a look around and use the contact form in the sidebar to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

 Mark your calendars! The first nomination round opens next week:
