Readers’ Choice Awards: The Voting Starts Now

Night Undone Cover Art

Nowadays, most book “awards” require an author to submit a book along with a hefty check to some “place” that will evaluate it and hopefully not resell your hard copy somewhere online when they’re done. Needless to say, I don’t do the award thing anymore. I don’t have an $80 entry fee lying around and I’d prefer readers judge my writing in other ways.

So, when a nomination for an award comes along that is based solely on quality – that gets my attention.  That’s what happens, once a year, at BigAl’s review site. If you’re lucky enough to be one of the books reviewed, that’s an honor in and of itself. But to then have a book nominated for an award – well… I’m tickled to death. But…it gets better.

This year, two of my books have been nominated for Readers’ Choice Awards. That is the highest compliment and honestly, I am stunned. So, BAD BOOK has been nominated in the humor category, and Night Undone in thriller.

But…that’s not all. This year, quite a few of my author friends have also been nominated. It’s wonderful to be among such talented people. Makes me feel smart.

Kudos to:

Laurie Boris for Sliding Past Vertical
Lynne Cantwell for Tapped
Nicole Storey for Blind Sight
DV Berkom for Yucatan Dead
and of course Stephen Hise and JD Mader, my co-authors of Bad Book

If I missed anyone, I apologize.

My friend Laurie Boris, who I mention above, has written a blog post featuring some of the nominees as well as instructions and links for voting.

Congratulations to all my fellow nominees and to my friends – I’m proud of you guys and honored to be amongst you! Best of luck to everyone.

Here’s Laurie’s post: Readers’ Choice Awards: The Voting Starts Now.
