Golden Flogger Award Finalists — 2016

Below are our Golden Flogger Award Finalists. We believe these 38–books represent some of the best BDSM romance and non-fiction on the market today. Finalists are listed alphabetically by author in each category. We received 201 books for consideration of the Golden Flogger Award. Of these, 38 books were disqualified as they did not meet our criteria for a BDSM novel. We hope you enjoy these novels as much as we did.
Join us August 18, 2017 in New York City to discover the Winners!

Note: The judges would like to acknowledge the fact that BDSM Writers Con Anthology 2015 was nominated by several individuals and reached the Finalist’s stage of the Golden Flogger Awards. Unfortunately, it cannot be considered further due to its association with the conference. Therefore, we’d like to acknowledge its Finalist nomination and the authors within it who wrote wonderful stories for your enjoyment. And though you many not find it on Amazon, as they sent the book to the naughty bin, you can purchase your copy here and enjoy.
