Shameless vote begging :)
Hee! I am honoured and a bit staggered to find out that Captain’s Surrender has been short-listed for the Dear Author Bitchery Writing Award for Hellagood Authors (DA BWAHA for short).
Why am I honoured and staggered? Well… (a) it’s Dear Author and they don’t take any prisoners and (b) I’m up against people like Diana Gabaldon, Josh Lanyon and Laura Baumbach!
Clearly I need all the help I can get!
I normally wouldn’t try to get people to vote for me by the underhanded expedient of actually asking them to But this case seems different because (a) voters can get prizes, up to and including a Sony e-reader. And (b) Captain’s Surrender is up against Lord John and the Hand of Devils! I repeat: I need all the help I can get!
The explanation of the rules of the contest is here at DA BWAHA.com
and the 8 books in my category are on the GBLT page (click the link at the top right hand side of the page.)
Voting isn’t live until tomorrow (the 15th of March 2009), but if you genuinely did like Captain’s Surrender more than those other books, I’d love it if you felt able to vote for it. Thank you! (And here’s hoping the e-reader will be yours!)
