Thank you to everyone who voted (or tried to vote but couldn’t get through the login process, which took me a like the whole week to understand) — Shards has won the Pitch Perfect award for the week of February 6th!
Well, or, seeing as Pedro isn’t in the running for a Pitch Perfect Pick this week, you could vote for my book Shards, if you want to … Clicking on the image below will take you to the voting page.
I only voted once for myself, because that’s how I roll, which means I got an actual vote from somebody who isn’t me. I don’t know who else voted for Shards, but thank you, anonymous person! And another thank you to anyone else who might have the time and inclination to pay Underground Book Reviews a visit and place a vote for Shards — as far as I can tell, no login or account is required.**
** EDIT: I’ve heard that the voting is in fact asking people to log in using WordPress or Facebook. I apparently never log out of anything so I didn’t realize it was doing this. Sorry about that! I appreciate that people have been willing to cast votes for Shards, but please don’t worry if you can’t get to the voting screen — I wouldn’t ask anyone to create an account or log in to a random site on my behalf! 🙂
So this week I started reviewing my last completed but unpublished manuscript, Father’s Books. This one is essentially a ghost story, set, like Crows and Long Before Dawn, in a thinly veiled version of the Mohawk Valley region of New York. But more on that in a week or two, because this week, I heard from Underground Book Reviews that Shards is a Pitch Perfect Pick finalist for this week. Pretty cool!
