This being Election Day, it seems an appropriate day to ask my readers this week for a HUGE favor: (besides voting… please vote!)
This week- (Nov 3 -8) – Goodreads is accepting nominations for its Choice Awards for 2014.
They allow write-in nominations, and the top FIVE vote-getters become official nominees. They combine votes with number of ratings in order to pick the top 5.
One category is:
BEST DEBUT GOODREADS AUTHOR OF 2014
A nomination in that category would mean so much to me, and could significantly boost the success of my novel.
So please, PLEASE, if you read my book and liked it:
1. Go to Goodreads.com and register if you are not already a member. Goodreads is a book review website owned by Amazon.
2. Give “Just What I Always Wanted” a nice rating. The reviews on Amazon have been amazing (thank you), but I could use some additional ratings on Goodreads in order to qualify.
Here’s the link for the Ratings. Goodreads Rating for “Just What I Always Wanted”
3. Then: Go to the this link for Best Debut Goodreads Author of 2014 and write-in:
“Just What I Always Wanted”
NOTE: You have to register with Goodreads in order to be able to write in a vote.. otherwise you get the 15 predetermined nominees, but not the space at the bottom for a write-in. But registering is EASY!!!
It’s a long, long, LONG shot – but Life itself is a long shot – so – why not???
Thank you !!!!

You have to register with Goodreads in order to get the right to write in. I didn’t realize that… but registering is easy!!!!
Will do! Hoping you will be nominated!
Thank you so much!
Thanks! I think I am going to run for Governor next!

You’ve got my vote!!
Done! Now I’m going to go out to vote.
Thanks, and Yes, the other kind of voting is even more important.
You got it! Governor? Think bigger. Then memoir.
Thanks. And it would have to be Governor first before memoir.. since my life has been pretty ordinary so far. If most of my blog posts are about makeup, I haven’t had much of a life… yet…
Been meaning to sign up for Good Reads. Thanks for the push.
Good luck! (and yes, Governor and memoir!)
Thanks… next election for sure! I will be retired then, and can campaign (when I’m not in Zumba class)
Rated, reviewed and wrote in vote. Done.
Wonderful! Thank you so much. I know I haven’t a prayer against books with 5,000 reviews, but if I could get on the same page, my visibility would go up astronomically!
And I just saw the amazon review too… Thank you so much.
Done the first, including review. Remind us all when the next round starts. Good luck.
Thanks for the review! It’s a long shot that I make it to the second round – but if it happens, I will let the whole world know!
