Moonscript (Kings of Aselvia Book #1) by H. S. J. Williams

What’s next? The voting!
As Genie might say, there are a few provisos, a couple of quid pro quos.
Come back June 1st through June 21st to vote.
Rule #1: You only get to vote once.
Our judges will filter out multiple names and email addresses and other tricks to game the system. We love your passion, but if we think you’re trying to cheat, we’ll disqualify those votes.
Rule #2: You can only vote for books you’ve read.
These are all deserving stories. If some of them having made it to top of your TBR list, move them on up, and if you have read them, be sure to leave a review on all the sites where the books are available for purchase. It’s a great way to help these authors and help your fellow readers find these exceptional stories.
Rule#3: Give each book you’ve read a Star rating.
The scale is 1 to 5, with 5 being the best.
We have actual humans checking the voting. If you think you’re being Admiral Thrawn level strategy with giving one book five stars and all the rest one-star, we’ll see that. It’s a good to get your votes disqualified. Be thoughtful in your voting. This is a major award. The authors deserve that.
The Readers’ Choice Award winner will be announced at the Realm Makers Conference Awards Banquet on Friday, July 16, 2021.
