I am so excited to announce that I have been selected to be a Cybils judge this year!
I was lucky enough to be a judge a few years ago. Last year I was not selected, but now I get to be part of this amazing group of people once again. It really makes me happy. Happy, Happy, Happy.
This year I will be helping in the category of Book Apps. You can read about the rules and category on the main website.
Book apps are stand-alone applications on a touchscreen device like the iPad that combine features of books, audiobooks, ebooks, animation and video creating a unique experience for readers of all ages.
Remember when you nominate an app there are a few rules to keep in mind.
1. Must be available in iTunes store.
2. Book apps must be published between October 16, 2012 and October 15, 2013.
There is a great website that will provide you the release of any app – http://appshopper.com.
Here is the amazing group I am fortunate enough to work with for the judging.
Don’t forget to nominate your favorite app along with all the other book categories. It is always hard to judge which ones to nominate.
