RONE Awards – My Book is up for Public Voting!!!

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:

  1. Books reviewed by InD’Tale achieving the required star rating (4-5) go onto the second phase
  2. Books are subject to public voting within categories and must win to proceed
  3. 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 🙂

Philippa Jane Keyworth, known to her friends as Pip, has been writing since she was twelve in every notebook she could find. Originally trained as a horse-riding instructor, Philippa went on to become a copywriter before beginning a degree in History. A born again Christian, Philippa lives in the south of England with her handsome husband. Philippa has always written stories and believes that, since it is one of her loves and passions, she always will. In her early writing career, she dabbled in a variety of genres, but it was the encouragement of a friend to watch a film adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that began her love affair with the British Regency. Since then, she has watched every Regency film and TV series she could get her hands on and become well acquainted with Georgette Heyer's novels which gave her the inspiration to write her own. Both as a reader and a writer, Philippa believes it is important to escape into a world you yourself would want to live in. This is why she writes stories that will draw you into the characters' joys and heartaches in a world apart from our own. Her debut novel, The Widow's Redeemer (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), is a traditional Regency romance bringing to life the romance between a young widow with an indomitable spirit and a wealthy viscount with an unsavory reputation. The novel has been received well by readers and reviewers who have praised the heartfelt story and admirable characters. Her second novel, The Unexpected Earl (Madison Street Publishing, 2014), explores another romance in the Regency era when an impetuous young woman has her life turned upside down by the reappearance of the earl who jilted her six years ago. So, what are you waiting for? Get swept away into another time with characters you will learn to love, and experience the British Regency like never before.
