Thirty-three books were disqualified as they did not meet the criteria for a BDSM novel or were not published in 2014. Below are our Golden Flogger Award Finalists.

Note: The judges would like to acknowledge the fact that The First Annual BDSM Writers Con Anthology 2014 was nominated by several people and reached the Finalist’s stage of the Golden Flogger Awards. Unfortunately, it cannot be considered as a winner due to its association with the conference. Therefore, we’d like to at least acknowledge its Finalist nomination and the authors within it.

Live with passion,
