I was so excited to find out that EYES OF LIGHTNING received a high rating from InD’Tale Magazine, which qualified it for the 2012 RONE Awards! Now it has continued to the second phase, where readers will narrow down the contestants to four finalists by voting for their favorites. The finalists in this round will then be judged by a group of industry professionals to determine the best in indie and small-press published books in 2012. Winners in each category will be presented the RONE award at a Las Vegas ceremony in August.
An excerpt from InD’Tale Magazine:
We at InD’Tale magazine went to extensive labor to create and present the most credible and prestigious award in the industry today. Our three round system of elimination covers every facet: highly reviewed, loved by fans, and critiqued by qualified judges. No other award system today begins to compare, making the RONE award the very highest of honors bestowed on a book in the publishing industry.
I can’t advance to the third and final phase unless I receive enough votes. But since I have the best fans in the world, this could happen with your help!! If you’ve read EOL and liked it, I would be eternally grateful if you would CLICK HERE TO VOTE ON THE RONE SITE! The only trick is that you have to either register with InD’Tale first (which involves clicking a link in the verification email you receive) or download a voting form to email to InD’Tale. Once you’ve done of those two options, you’ll be able to vote for EOL in the Young Adult Paranormal category. Voting is only open for one week, making June 1st the last day to vote. If you have family and friends who read EOL, please help me to spread the word about the voting! Let me know if you have questions. And THANK YOU to everyone who votes!! You rock!!
