How to vote:
If you were part of the nominating process, then you don’t need to cast a vote. We will assume that you want to vote for your nominee(s). If you want to change your vote, or cast a vote in a category where you didn’t nominate, then post your new vote in the comments section below.
If you were not part of the nominating process, then there are three steps you must follow:
A) Establish your credentials. Make a comment on this blog post, with links to three reviews posted in 2015 on your blog, podcast, or booktube channel. If you have a multi-topic podcast/video, please give us time references.
B) Post on your blog (or talk on your podcast or youtube channel), discussing which story you think is the best. You get one vote per category. You may cast your votes together in one post, or you may use separate posts. You are not required to vote in all three categories.
