Winners of The 2014 DJ Gatsby Book Club Literary Awards

First of all on behalf of DJ Gatsby Book Club and its more than 10,000 WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and Tumblr followers I want to congratulate all of the phenomenal authors who were nominated for the DJGBC Literary Awards this year.

This is our second year presenting the DJGBC Awards and the first time that we actually chose the winners without having on-line voting. We selected the nominees as well as the winners by using a not so scientific formula in which we combined Amazon Ranking, Reviews, Social Media presence as well as interaction with DJ Gatsby Book Club. The Authors & their books were chosen from releases that were published in the past 12 months.

And lastly we want to say congratulations to all of the winners. Running an On-Line book club is hard work and maintaining a On-Line presence in so many social media platforms  is very challenging.

We love what we do and we do it for you and the thousands of readers who go out and buy your books. Your impact on the literacy of African-American readers and young children is so important and we salute you all for continuing the long-standing tradition of storytelling in the black community.

DJGBC Founder: Jeff “DJ Gatsby” Wilson

madlen 1

Madlen Namro was born in Lodz, Poland. When she was seven, maybe eight years old, children in her school used to call her Pippi Longstocking, because she would always make up stories and generally pull everyone’s leg all the time. In fact her daydreams of being a writer got serious enough for her parents to be called to school. The teacher downright told them that the best way to deal with it would be to make her commit it all to paper. So, when she was around nine, her first book was written, it was called “Talking Dog and Me”. That’s how her adventure with writing begun. She’s always seemed to have a rather lively imagination and making up stories has always been her second nature, something she never had trouble with. She believes it to be a gift from God and one that she was meant to use.

Madlen writes articles, tales, books for children, teenagers, science fiction and screenplays. She has recently begun a new journey through life as a Film Director. She is a full member of Women Writers and Journalists Society in London & website is http://www.madlennamro.com
