Back to step two, where you come in. I need your votes. There are 24 nominees in my category, Thriller/Suspense, and only two will move on to the final phase. If you haven't registered with InD'tale before, you'll need to do that. After the contest, if you want to unregister you can. What registering does is allow you to vote, and you'll also receive the online magazine each month for free. It really is a nice one, but you can opt out. The point is...I need your vote first.
The conundrum is I have two books in the category. I think I need to favor one over the other or risk the result of not getting enough votes for either one to move on to the final round. If you've read them both, then vote your conscience if you must, but I'm going to favor The Power of Love and Murder. There is a scene in the book right out of my brother's life, so it's special to me. Plus, it's political misdeeds and rock and roll related...timely and fun.
Thank you so much!
