So what’s next?
Come back May 1-21 to vote! The top five books with the most votes will move onto the Readers’ Choice Award finals!
Here’s what you need to know:
- You’ll only get to vote once. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Please don’t try to game the system by using multiple names and email addresses so you can vote more than once. While we appreciate your zeal for your favorite books, if we suspect you’re trying to cheat, those votes will be disqualified.
- You can only vote for books you’ve actually read, so get busy reading the books above!
- For each book you’ve actually read, we’re asking for a star rating. (Five stars is the best.)
- Don’t five-star a book and one-star everything else, Maleficent. That’s a good way to get your vote disqualified, and we do check. Be thoughtful. The authors deserve that.
The Readers’ Choice Award winner will be announced at the Realm Makers Conference Awards Banquet on Friday, July 16, 2021.
