When I announced that my book How To Fell A Timberman had been nominated for the ROAN AWARD by InDtale Magazine, I recieved a few e-mails saying things like, “I went to the website but couldn’t vote!”
OPPS! HERE’S WHY!
The voting on my book doesn’t start until Monday, May 9th. Also, while it’s easy to vote, there is definitely a “process” to make it happen.
The genre’s are divided up between voting weeks and you can’t vote for your favorite book in a particular genre until that particular genre’s week.
For example, this past week, that is, May 2nd -May 8th Contemporary-Steamy, Chicklit and Fantasy’SciFi were up for votes. Only the books in these genres could be voted on.
Starting tomorrow on May 9th readers can vote for American Historicals, Ya General and Fantasy /SciFi.
Be aware that you have to register to vote [It’s free ], so the website knows you are a real person and to prevent dumping votes when only one is allowed.
Here’s a step by step how-to with helpful links. I’m using my book as an example but you can use this how-to for any genre. Of course I’d appreciate it if you stop by and vote for my American Historical, How To Fell A Timberman.
The instructions look long but only because I numbered the steps to make it easy.
Remember: You must first register to vote [ It’s free ] so they know that it isn’t someone who is voting many times. It’s easy and free and you can opt out of receiving any emails or the electronic magazine if you choose to.
