Ok I must ask, who does this award and how much was the entry fee?
I have a total confusion on your book.
What is the title? What is the genre? And why if it is such a great book is it only on Smashwords?

I have been following the indie authors for a while. I have never heard of that particular award.

It appears that authors must PAY MONEY - $50 - to enter this contest for each title they submit.

Submit 10 ebooks and the cost is $500.

Thanks Don. Pretty much what I figured. The more titles you submit, the greater your chances of getting "Best Indie" on one of them.
Or in other words, give us money and we will give you an award.

I wish to make it clear, however, that I pulled those figures (10 and 100) out of thin air to show what this company can potentially make.

I figured that much.
And the bad part is: they will make the money because there are authors that believe any award will lead to sales.

Maybe I am just too jaded anymore.

The award can be seen at http://bestindiebookaward.com/. It does cost $50, and like was said, a person can enter as many books as desired. There are only 9 categories, so only nine winners. I only entered one book, which has also won lots of other awards, so if it wins against those who put in a lot, that is great. [Promotional text deleted - MODERATOR]

Glad you have won other awards because that best indie award isn't worth the bytes it uses.
Anytime a website has award in the name it is usually a scam.
I also noticed the only promotional sites they use are little bitty ones.
I looked at last year's winners. No big indie names there.
Not even any mid listers.
Oh wait, I think I remember Julie talking about this award.
Can I recommend you check out Bardsandsages.com?
She usually knows about all the indie awards.

The category for this title from our new member (for those who would like to investigate further), is in the "Mainstream Category."
