I am thrilled to announce that A Reason to Live has been nominated by Big Al’s Books and Pals for their 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards! I made it past the 1,400 books submitted and the 368 actually reviewed to make it into Big Al’s top echelon.
But I need your help! Winners are selected by votes, so please cast yours for A Reason to Live over at Big Al’s place, http://booksandpals.blogspot.com/. While you’re there, check out the nominees in the other genres…there are some wonderful books there.
If you want to get a look inside the book before voting, I recently made A Reason to Live free on Kobo and Smashwords, so grab your copy now (free on Amazon, iTunes, and B&N soon!) and take a gander before casting your vote.
p.s. Voting goes until midnight (EST) March 12th, so tell your friends!
