Voting Open for Best Fantasy Novel of the Year on Reddit


Well, it's that time of year again, reddit's /r/Fantasy voting is open for a number of rewards and The Death of Dulgath has been nominated for Best Fantasy Fiction of 2015 and the cover design that was created by the amazing Marc Simonetti is nominated for Best Artwork Released in 2015.   To vote, click on the picture below or on this link.

Now, I don't expect to win, and this isn't a plea to vote for my book, I'm just letting people know the competition is open so you can weigh in on your favorite. To be honest, I'm just hoping not to embarrass myself by coming in last place.

I have been fortunate enough to win a Stabby in the past. The nice thing about this competition is how cool the trophy is... a beautiful engraved dagger. Here I am showing off my prior Stabby win.


I was also nominated in two other categories - but asked to remove myself.  The first was Best Self-Published Book of 2015.  While it is true that The Death of Dulgath is a self-published novel, I didn't want to steal the spotlight from those that self-publish and don't have the marketing support of a big traditional publisher.  The other category I pulled myself from contention was the Most Active Author nomination.  The reason for pulling my name from that one was because it's essentially what I won the Stabby for last time. I say essentially because the best contributor in the forum award used to be just one category but now it's been split into author and non-author categories.  So, again, I wanted to step aside and give others who haven't won this amazing award a chance to get their own Stabby.



In any case, I truly feel that it's an honor just to be nominated, and I encourage you go vote for whichever book you enjoyed the most in 2015.  Cheers!
