Do you ever watch award shows and wonder whose voice the decision-makers are listening to? I get frustrated sometimes when I watch events like the Academy Awards or the People’s Choice Awards or the Golden Globes, because many times the winners aren’t the ones I would have picked.
What if you had a voice?
Maybe you can’t do anything about who wins the next Emmy for best picture. Maybe your vote won’t matter much in the People’s Choice Awards either. But I can tell you about a contest you can vote in TODAY that will make a huge difference in an author’s life. The Alliance Award!
I announced a little while ago that my novel, New Name, had been nominated for another Realm Makers award, the Realm Award. The Alliance Award is a completely separate contest. It’s entirely based on reader votes!
This is the first time that Realm Makers has offered a reader’s choice award. This gives you an amazing chance to be a deciding voice in who wins this incredible prize. And, let me tell you, the competition is stiff this year. Every nominated book is awesome!
Who gets to vote?
Everyone. Anyone. You just need your email address, and you need to have read at least two of the nominated books on the list. That’s it. And who is on the list? Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Nadine Brandes, Ronie Kendig, Jill Williamson, Mike Duran, Mary Weber, Patrick Carr, Morgan Busse, and yours truly, just to name a few.
Seriously, if you haven’t read any of these books already, you should do it anyway. Use this list as your next year’s reading list, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
So what are you waiting for?
Jump over to the Realm Makers page now and cast your vote for your favorite book from 2016. Your voice really matters in this awards contest. Honestly, one voice can make a difference. So check out the list of nominations and mark your star rating for each book on the list that you’ve read!
But don’t delay. Voting for the Alliance Award ends April 30!
Thank you all for your vote, and good luck to all the nominees!
