I spit my latte this morning when I learned from my publisher that IT'S ALL RELATIVE: 2 FAMILIES, 3 DOGS, 34 HOLIDAYS & 50 BOXES OF WINE has been nominated by YOU, the fans and Goodreads members, as a 2011 Choice Awards nominee in "Humor." And I need your support!
Please go to the link below and vote for IT'S ALL RELATIVE (and, if you're not a Goodreads member already, it only takes a few seconds to register and vote). The Opening Round of voting goes through Nov. 13!
I'm up against some powerhouse authors and legendary funny folks, including Betty White, Albert Brooks, Chelsea Handler, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon, so I am truly honored ... but I think you can see why mama needs to mobilize her rabid voting base.
All nominees were selected by the readers, i.e., YOU!, and nominations are based on book's total number of ratings and average rating as pegged by 6 million Goodreads members. So a nomination is truly an honor because it comes from readers! This year, Goodeads analyzed statistics from the 87 million books added, rated and reviewed on the site this year. Only a total of 15 books in 22 categories, for a total of 330 books, were nominated. THANK YOU!
GO HERE NOW TO VOTE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS ON FB, TWITTER, YOUR BLOGS!
You will have three chances to vote:
Opening Round: October 31 – November 13, 2011
Voting open to official nominees and write-in votes.
Semifinals: November 14 – November 20, 2011
We add the top 5 write-ins as official nominees. Additional write-ins no longer accepted.
Finals: November 21 – November 30, 2011
The field narrows to the top 10 books in each category
In advance, thanks for your support! (I'd say it's an honor just to be nominated, but we all know that's just BS!)
