We are over the moon to share that books by two of our incredible authors have been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Awards 2022. The awards, chosen by readers, celebrate the best books of the year, and we are thrilled that The Maid by Nita Prose and Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson have been selected for the shortlist.

The Maid launched this January to global acclaim, and claimed the No.1 spot in the The New York Times and the Canadian Globe and Mail charts. We were thrilled when Amazon selected The Maid as one of their Top 20 Best Books of the Year, and Kirkus Reviews named it one of their Best Mysteries and Thrillers of 2022.

Black Cake instantly hit the No.2 spot on The New York Times bestseller list when it published earlier this year. Black Cake was featured on Obama’s 2022 Summer Reading List, and is one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year.

The Maid has been nominated in two categories: Debut Novel and Mystery/Thriller. Black Cake has also been nominated in two categories: Debut Novel and Historical Fiction.

Many congratulations to Nita and Charmaine, and their wonderful novels! Voting in this round is open until November 27th.
