Hendersonville, NC, May 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Author Joe Perrone Jr. is pleased to announce that his Matt Davis Mystery, Opening Day
, has been awarded a prestigious Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion for 2012.
B.R.A.G. Medallion is owned and operated by indieBRAG, LLC, a privately held organization that has brought together a large group of readers, both individuals and members of book clubs, located throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
The word “indie” refers to self or independently published books, while B.R.A.G. is an acronym for Book Readers Appreciation Group. By their nature, its readers are passionate about all books, but for the purposes of the service it provides, it focuses exclusively on the work of self-published authors of print and digital books. From the large and rapidly growing library of indie books that are available today, it selects those that it believes deserve to be considered. These books are then read and evaluated by members drawn from its readers group. The readers judge the merits of the books based on a proprietary list of criteria. The single most important criterion that readers are asked to use in judging a book is whether or not they would recommend it to their best friend. Once a book meets this standard of quality, it is awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion™, and along with other medallion recipients, it is presented on the organization's website.
