3 Beautiful Words: "Dear RONE Nominee"

I opened up my email the other day and here is what I found:

Dear RONE nominee,

Congratulations on being nominated for the illustrious RONE Award!

Very excited and pleased that All Fired Up received a 4 star or better review from InD’tale Magazine and has continued to the public voting phase for the 2017 RONE Awards. Just being a nominee for this prestigious recognition for indie authors is an honor among all the writing talent on the list of nominees.

What happens next? Readers and fans will determine which books go on to the final round. I’d love your vote!! But it’s a small window for casting your vote. Here is how:

Voting for my category (mystery) takes place May 22 – 28 2017.

Here is the link on the magazine’s website to register as a subscriber: (once you've voted and you no longer wish to remain a subscriber to this free online magazine, log back in to the site and unsubscribe).

Then write yourself a reminder on a hot-pink sticky note, like I must do for everything, and stick it on the refrigerator, microwave, your teakettle, or your rear view mirror in the car. Whatever is your style. Even if this reminder to vote for All Fired Up is on your to-do list with your milk and eggs or dry cleaning or pedicure, I will be honored.

Voting week for my category (mystery) - Week of May 22 -28. Did I say that already? Okay, I'm saying it again. :)
