How to vote:

If you were part of the nominating process, 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, put your vote on your blog, podcast, or youtube channel.  Then, leave a comment on this page, so we know to count your vote. You get one vote for best short story and one for best novel, but you don’t have to use both votes if you’re only interested in one category.

The voting deadline is April 30th, 11:59PM US Pacific time.

Good luck to all the nominated authors!

    There aren’t as many nominees this year as in the past couple of years, so if you haven’t voted before, this might be a good year to join in. I see a couple of works by authors I’ve enjoyed in the past, so my reading list for March/April just got longer.
