Writer Beware Wins Blogging Award
Posted on May 21, 2012 Posted by John Scalzi 7 Comments
The Writer Beware blog has been devoted for years to exposing scams aimed at writers, and now that work has paid off: The blog and its proprietor Victoria Strauss have won the Independent Book Blogger Award in the category of “Publishing Industry.” This is pretty awesome.
Here’s the official page with all the winners (and nominees), and here’s the press release, posted on the Writer Beware site itself.
Congratulations to Victoria Strauss! May you continue to vex and annoy scammers and scumbags who prey on writers. No doubt some of them are grinding their teeth at you winning this award. I say: Let them grind.
So there, scammers and agenda-laden trolls. Victoria (and Ann and Richard) and Writer Beware rocks; kudos to SFWA for their support of Writer Beware. It really does make a huge difference.
Looks like the anonymous grinding has begun over at Writer Beware, and hilariously so.
This is very necessary work. I am glad someone is doing it. Terrific to see such work acknowledged.

Grats to them, they deserve it. It’s a good work they’re doing.
The heads at The Write Agenda already exploded. Good times!
Sincere congratulations to Victoria, Ann and Richard – what a tremendous service!
