My debut novel The Widow’s Redeemer (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), has been nominated for the RONE Book Award for excellence in post medieval historical fiction and it is now up for public voting which you can do here! (I will only be posting about this once 🙂 )
What’s the RONE Award:
In a pre-publication review of my book, InD’Tale magazine gave The Widow’s Redeemer, 4.5 out of 5 stars and as a result also gave it the Crowned Heart Award for excellence. You can read a snippet from the review on this page. This meant that it was automatically nominated for the RONE Award which is divided into 3 stages:
- Books reviewed by InD’Tale achieving the required star rating (4-5) go onto the second phase
- Books are subject to public voting within categories and must win to proceed
- Books will be subject to a panel of experts for review before a final book is chosen to receive the RONE Award in each category
Where to Vote:
Okay, so that’s the process and The Widow’s Redeemer has already achieved the 1st step. Today, 26th April 2013, the public voting has opened for The Widow’s Redeemer, which can be found on this page, under ‘Week 2 Poll Period’ in the category ‘Best Historical Post Medieval Work’ and is open for 1 week ONLY!
How to Vote:
So, I wanted to ask all those people who have read my book and enjoyed it, if you want to support the book, can you vote for it today on the link above? Voting is really simple and involves either registering with InD’Tale (which I am – it’s a great magazine) and once you’re logged in beneath the voting category ‘Best Post Medieval Work’ my book will appear and you can vote, or you can download and email or mail a voting form depending on your preference.
Thank you to all those of you who take the time to do this – I really appreciate it!
Have a great rest of the day and I’ll let you know how I got on – it’s just such a thrill to even be nominated 🙂
