It’s very humbling to receive notification that your debut novel, This Piece of My Heart, received a nomination for the 2016 Summer Indie Book Awards in the Romance Genre. Sponsored by Metamorph Publishing, this new award seeks to recognize authors who choose to publish independently. Nominated books fall in one of 19 categories, with the winners in each category chosen by social media votes.
Voting for the awards is conducted via Poll Maker, and opened at midnight Central US time September 1, 2016. Anyone can vote once per day, until midnight on September 11, 2016. Categories and voting links for all categories are available on Metamorph Publishing’s Facebook Page. If you can’t find a book title or author while you’re on the poll page, you can use Control and F together to bring up a search bar at the top right of the screen. Then, you can type in the book title or author name and it will highlight them for you! (You can find This Piece of My Heart in the Romance category.) As you look through the LONG list of nominated books, you’ll found many talented authors whose books earn five-stars in my collection. Also, I was super happy to learn that you can vote for multiple books within each genre! One vote per day, please!
You may vote in any or all genres. Each genre will allow you to make multiple choices, as long as you checkmark them all BEFORE you hit vote the first time! Since voting is limited to one visit per day, you must get ALL your choices marked within a category before you hit the vote button.
Check out the wonderful books nominated—you may find dozens of ideas for your Fall Reading! You can find all voting categories on the Metamorph Publishing website. #IndieBookAwards
