Voting for the Grace Awards has now begun!




Copy and paste the template below into an email and send it to: graceawards@aol.com 
(The template is in BOLD type below.) I've had five books release in 2011 that are eligible, so if you loved them feel free to nominate them. To remind you of the titles, they are... Letting Go, First Response, In Sheep's Clothing, When Love Collides, and Their Separate Ways...

CRITERIA FOR NOVELS:

Original novels presenting a Christian worldview written in English and originally published in English, released in hard cover, trade paperback, or in Ebook format.

Traditional publishers, Small press, Indie publishers, self-published works. To us, Pbooks and Ebooks all compete on the same level playing field. Where a question arises, the Board makes the final decision, but it is not our aim to exclude, but rather to be inclusive.

Readers can only vote for novels released between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

Most of all, the novel must reach the highest of literary standards and add something of value to Christian fiction and the Christian community.

Only one novel by an author can final in a category.

WHO CAN VOTE FOR NOVELS:

Individuals (not organizations) readers who maintain a networking page (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Goodreads, ShoutLife, Linkedin, Ning sites, etc.) created before November 1, 2011.

An individual not affiliated with the Grace Awards (and not in the publishing industry) will tabulate votes.

If a novel is submitted in an incorrect category, the Board’s Voter Panel will move it to the correct category rather than discount the vote. The Panel makes all decisions on what votes will be accepted, but it is not our aim to exclude or disqualify, but rather to be inclusive.

Authors can vote. You are readers too. You can’t vote for your own novel(s).

Board members and judges can vote, but not for their own book(s).

I see no template to copy and post?

If you read the post in red near the top it says the template is in the bold type below. So look for the bold type and you'll see the template.

I did, but it is not showing and on the one blog I found it showing, it wouldn't open. People are not going to vote if it's so hard.

Michelle Sutton said...

I'll post it here then. I don't know it wouldn't be showing up on your end. That's strange.

Michelle, I don't see any link to click on even after you reposted. It says the one below, but nothing shows below. I would have liked to participate and vote for different books in different categories, but I can't get the required template. Thanks for trying, BJ

You aren't reading the instructions correctly. YOU provide the link to the review YOU posted when you send the information in. You can delete the categories you aren't voting for. Let me know you what I mean. Say you are only voting for one category... You would send this...

Womens Fiction Title HERE YOU WOULD TYPE THE BOOKS TITLE, LIKE THEIR SEPARATE WAYS(serious women’s issues, can have humor and/or suspense elements). Why you like the story: (At least 25 words HERE YOU WOULD WRITE YOUR DESCRIPTION)

AND HERE AT THE BOTTOM (OR AT THE TOP) YOU PROVIDE THE LINK TO YOUR REVIEW POSTED ON ANY OF THE SITES LISTED -GOODREADS, FACEBOOK, SHELFARI, ETC. MAKE SENSE?

Michelle Sutton said...

AND BY DESCRIPTION ABOVE, I MEAN YOUR DESCRIPTION OF WHY YOU LOVED THE BOOK, NOT WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT.
