Normally Google Alerts tells me about reviews and such, but sometimes it misses for whatever reason. It missed this one, so the email I got yesterday was a bit of a (nice) shock.
Not only did it contain a link to a stellar review and a shiny button with which to show it off, but it informed me that All Wounds had been nominated for Book of the Week on their site! From their mail [sic]:
Your story “All Wounds” was reviewed by us this week here: http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com/2011/12/all-wounds-by-dina-james.html and is up for Book of the Week honor this weekend (voting runs from Saturday, December 10th through December 11th). We thought you might like to know. You can find the information here on Saturday:
Wow. WOW, I say. So what happens if I win this nomination? Again, from their email:
The winning author gets a nifty button and the privilege of having their book or story featured at the top of the Long and Short Reviews home page the entire next week, as well as getting a custom made animated banner from Goddess Fish Promotions to publicize their review and the win!
That’s a pretty sweet deal. I like shiny banners and promo!
So if you liked All Wounds, would you mind heading over to the review site and voting for me? There’s no registration (that I saw) and it’s just one click on my name then one for the vote button! (You can also click to see the results once you’ve voted!)
Thank you, lovely friends and fans!
