January 1, 2014 (Matthews, NC) — Have you ever wondered what all the hoopla is about? It’s not just about winning an award and showing off work. It’s about supporting charities and writers around the world. Elisa writes, “More than 520 books, almost 170 judges, all over the world, and many, many submissions, from indie publishers, from mainstream publishers and a lot of self-published authors. And, to me more important of everything, we raised almost 11500 dollars donated to LGBT charities.”
Every year Supposed Crimes enters books for judgment and supports the LGBT community in great ways through the annual Rainbow Awards. Each year we win some and we lose some.
But I know what you’re all waiting for! Without further ado here’s our wonderful news.
