Backstreet Lite was
formed just under three years ago. The group was formed
with a common interest for the love of the Backstreet Boys as well as losing
weight. As time has gone by, we have grown by leaps and bounds. We've
dieted together, fell off the wagon together, and vacationed together. We have
made some everlasting friendships.
The majority of us
also share another common interest, BACKSTREET FAN
FICS! We devour fan fics, trade links, and annoy authors with feedback! We
read anything we can get our hands on and have been known to discuss many
of the stories. We have chased down links, followed stories, and begged for
updates. Some of us have even turned to writing for an outlet and for the Lites.
We search high and
low for new links, sites, and authors. We are always looking
for new stuff to post and pass around.
Therefore, last August,
we decided to do a BSB Lite Award Site. We have all
seen them and we love them because you can always find new material to read
along with the old stand-bys.
We had such a great
time doing this last year and we discovered many new
authors, we decided to do it again. Our awards are set up a bit differently than
others.There will be three Lites judging each story. After we finish, only five
of the 34 categories will be put up for public voting. We are taking every measure
to make this as fair as possible. So, please feel free to nominate your favorite
author and enjoy the fun! Authors please feel free to nominate your own writings.
All Lites are disqualified
from entering. Let's face it, we've seen the 'Let's Win
Our Own Award Sites'. People run the sites to benefit themselves and lo and
behold they win, isn't that amazing. In our eyes, it is deemed tacky.
