RONE Award Nomination

Jan Sikes, a Story Empire colleague and award-winning author, wrote a post last September about her experiences submitting her books to award contests as part of her promotion strategy. You can check out the post Here.

She was so convincing that I decided to give it a try and submitted The Necromancer’s Daughter to 4 different competitions.

It’s a long process as you can imagine. But one of the contests has moved on to the 2nd round, and my book is still in the running. This one is for the InD’Tale Magazine’s 2023 RONE Award.

Now the reason for this post:

I’ve never asked for Votes before, but reader enthusiasm is the basis for moving on to the 3rd and final critique round. So, I’m putting on my grown-up pants, sucking in some courage, and asking:

If you’re inclined and have the time and energy, a vote for The Necromancer’s Daughter would be much appreciated.

And, of course, they don’t make it easy, so no pressure to follow through on this request at all. They require voters to subscribe to their site (it’s free, but still): InD’Tale Magazine. Once you’re there, the blue Subscribe button is at the top.

And once subscribed (which includes an email verification link), you can vote. Click on the top menu item: RONE’S/Contests, then 2023 RONE Awards Reader Voting.

Week 2 (today-4/23) voting includes Fantasy novels. Click on “Vote Here” and the rest is easy.



If you’re an author, this site has a lot of reasonably priced promotion opportunities. It’s worth a peek.
