Calling fans of GATHER THE BONES - the RONE AWARD

As a small press published author, I try very hard not to be too 'needy' but if you read (and liked) GATHER THE BONES,  I hope you don't mind if I put out a special request for your support.

GATHER THE BONES has been nominated for the RONE Award. The RONE awards are organised by InD'tale Magazine, a huge supporter of indie and small press published books. They reviewed GATHER THE BONES late last year, giving it a 4.5 star review. To read the review click HERE. As a consequence of this review, the book qualified for the RONE awards and is up for voting by fans. If it is successful in this round it will be read by industry professionals.

"The finalists in this round will then be read and judged by a group of professionals in the industry to determine the very best in indie and small published books of 2012. They will then be awarded the prestigious RONE award, itself, at the formal ceremonies, August 9th, at the Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As you can tell, we at InD’Tale magazine went to extensive labor to create and present the most credible and prestigious award in the industry today. Our three round system of elimination covers every facet - highly reviewed, loved by fans, and critiqued by qualified judges. No other award system today begins to compare, making the RONE award the very highest of honors bestowed on a book in the publishing industry."

  1. Hi! I just wanted to offer my sincere congratulations to you on being a fellow FINALIST for a RONE Award as best of 2012. I am attending the conference. If you also plan to attend, which I believe you do, I look forward to meeting you in person and chatting. Or at least congratulating each other in person after we both win! (Wink!) God Bless, Hallee Bridgeman

  2. Hallee...thank you so much :-)

    This particular award means so much to me because the nomination has come from readers and not from a conscious decision on my part to enter a contest.

    Sady I won't be there in person. I live in Melbourne, Australia and have already indulged in one major trip to the USA this year so a second was not going to happen.

    I shall be keeping fingers and toes crossed for you!
