A Big Change for the Whitney Awards!

An announcement was just made on the Whitney Awards site: it is now possible for a book to win in multiple categories.

Personally, I'm very excited about this change. It has been a lot of fun watching great books written by talented LDS authors being honored every year at the Whitney Awards. The level of excellence in writing that is published by LDS authors each year just keeps getting better and better. Allowing a book to win in multiple categories, if the large Whitney Academy indeed casts their votes to bring such a result, is another way of recognizing an excellent work of fiction.
