I’ve been shortlisted! Which means I’ve also been LONGLISTED! Preen!
I received an email yesterday informing me that I’ve been shortlisted for the 2011 Leserpreis reader award in the “romance/love/emotion” category for the German edition of Dearly, Departed (translated title is Dark Love)! Which is astounding, honestly – I’m really honored. (Especially because I’m of German descent on my mother’s side, so a little national pride is mixed up in there somewhere…)
But – here’s where you come in! Readers vote for this award (and will until November 27th), so if you’d like to vote for D,D/DL, here’s what you need to do:
1. Go to the category page.
2. Look for my book. It has a different German cover, and it looks like this:
3. Click on the yellow button under it that says “abstimmen” – this means “vote” in German (I learn something every day!).
4. Fill in your name and email address.
5. Go back to your holiday sales and/or turkey, dreaming about how awesome Christmas in Germany is.
That’s it! I’m really honored, and I appreciate everyone’s vote!
