Please get ready to vote next week! Look out for a post from Rosie, too.
See details below:
The books ~ how they were chosen
Obviously these are taken only from those that have been submitted to Rosie and the team for reviewing, so it is not a far reaching selection, though we still had a few hundred to choose from. Rosie divided all the books that have been submitted in 2015 into five general categories, and the review team members (around 30 of us) each nominated up to three out of each category. Please see below the six in each category with the most nominations ~ these are the books that you, the reading public, may vote for. You may vote for up to two per category.
Please do NOT vote in a comment on here, or by tweet, but wait until voting opens on Rosie’s blog, on November 30th.
The voting will be open for ONE WEEK ONLY.
Results will be announced on December 15th.
Please only vote for a book that you believe deserves an award. We value everyone’s contribution and you are not required to vote in each category; it may be that you will vote for just one book if there is only one that you a) have read and b) deem worthy of the accolade of the Golden or SilverRose!
Obviously, authors are asked not to vote for their own books.
These are the books available for your votes on November 30th. These are the ones that received most nominations from the members of Rosie Amber’s Review Team.
(please note, some of the reviewing team are writers, too. We were only allowed to nominate ONE book by a team member)
