I always roll my eyes when I see posts on my dog lists along the lines of — my Fluffy is entered in the most beautiful puppy contest on dogzdogzdogz.com. Please go vote for Fluffy.
However, here I am asking for votes, not for Fluffy, but for Beautiful Bad Man. You see Bad Man is up for a 2012 RONE award at InD’Tale. The process as I understand it is that all romances like Bad Man which were indie published in 2012 and received 5-star reviews at the site are eligible.
After that, there is reader voting to nominate a certain number of the eligibles for the next round. That’s where things are right now. The InD’Tale staff actually sent me an email urging me to tell readers, friends and fans to vote, so here I am. You can see the entire list of eligible books here.
Voting for my category, American Historical, opens today and continues for a week until Thursday, May 2. Instructions for voting are here.
You don’t have to register to vote. But if you don’t, you have to do one of two alternative procedures that sound more complicated. I registered at the site at the time they did the review, and they’ve never spammed me in any way. I get one email a month notifying me of the release of that month’s edition of their magazine, and that’s all.
Unlike the Fluffy voting, this is not strictly a popularity contest. After the reader voting to narrow the field, the nominated contestants will be read and rated by reviewers (and not the regular reviewers for the site). That’s how the final winners will be decided. If I’ve read it right, there’s an overall winner and runners up and a winner in each category.
I’d appreciate any of you who can take the time going over to the site sometime in the next week and voting for Bad Man.
As one of my all-time favorite ads used to say, “Thank you for your support.”
