I’m pleased and honoured to announce that Visual Effects is up for an InD’tale Magazine RONE Award. As with Show No Weakness and It’s Complicated in previous years, I need votes, lots and lots of votes, to get my book in front of the judges, where it will be judged on its own merits.
I’m not a big fan of the voting process, and I don’t do well asking for help, but…I do need your help because it doesn’t matter how good my story may or may not be, without enough votes it won’t make it to the judges. Back in 2013, not only did Show No Weakness garner enough votes to make it to the judging round, it ended up winning in its category. In 2015, It’s Complicated was also voted through to the judges, qualifying it as a finalist. I’m really hopeful my family and friends will come through for me again by giving Visual Effects enough votes to move forward.
So I’m throwing myself on the mercy of all the people I know, which I wholeheartedly do, because I’m blessed to have the most supportive family and friends. Voting starts today, May 22nd, and runs all week. This is the link to InD’Tale’s website: http://indtale.com/2017-rone-awards-week-six
If you haven’t already, you must register with InD’Tale before you can vote. (If you voted before, you only need to log in with your password.) After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If it doesn’t show up in your inbox, please check your junk mail folder for it. This email only confirms your registration, but doesn’t have a link to the contest. You must go back into the site (you can use my link) to log in and vote AFTER you’ve confirmed your registration in the email. It might sound tricky, but it really isn’t, and I do appreciate you for making the effort. Of course, for all of you who voted previously, you’re already registered, and it’s a breeze to simply log in and vote.
Edited: If you have problems finding the voting page from the home page, go to the top right side of their website to a link that says InD’Scribe/RONES and a drop down will show 2017 RONE Awards. Hover over that and another dropdown will show the weeks, then click on Week Six.
Then scroll all the way down, and you’ll find Visual Effects listed close to the bottom of the “Contemporary: Steamy” category. Unfortunately, Visual Effects isn’t all that steamy, so it might not appeal to the judges expecting more heat, but that’s the category it’s been placed in, and all I can do is hope for the best.
But before that can happen, it has to pass the voting round. So, please, take a moment or two and give your support (and vote!) to Visual Effects. I’ll be forever grateful.
