Welcome to the 2005-2006 Excellence Award Page. Each month, one of four awards is  presented to authors, groups, or designers.

Each award was created for a specific purpose (see requirements below). The Internet is no longer the marketing tool of the future. It is the marketing tool of TODAY. Authors who intend to succeed must learn to use the net to their advantage. In order to encourage them, I created these awards.

Clicking the different awards will take you to the award page for the author/designer currently holding the award. Click Hall of Fame to view names and links to all former winners. Information about each award is listed below.

Awards

Recipients are presented with a graphic award to place on their sites, which must be linked to mine. For one quarter, the winning site is displayed on the featured award page and then the winner's name and website links are retired to the Hall of Fame page as a permanent link.

Excellence Award winners may post excerpts, announcements, or promos on my Yahoo group, Romance Lives Forever.
