Thanks to everyone who voted in our Reader’s Choice poll this time around! The poll phase narrows down all the books we published in 2015 to 4 titles for our reader/judges to evaluate. Here are the 4 Readers Choice Award finalists:
Readers Choice Award Finalists for Books Published in 2015
- All the Darkness in the World a tale of vampire horror by Andy Deane
- An Exorcism of Angels dark poetry by Stephanie Wytovich
- Indelible Ink urban fantasy by Matt Betts
- Steel Victory (Book 1 of the Steel Empires alternate history series) by J.L. Gribble
The next step is for our judges to read each title and rank them in order by preference. The winner will be announced at this years’ DogCon which will be held at the Broadkill Writers’ Resort in Milton, DE on the weekend of October 1st.
This Year’s Judges
Pam Emanuel is an avid reader who goes through 7 to 10 books a week and doesn’t own a TV. By day, she’s a Corporate Accountant, but by night she works on her third (unpublished) novel. The first periodically collects rejection notices and the second is locked in a disc waiting for the IT Guy to rescue it. She shares space with the Queen Diva of Persians, Greta.
Daniel P. Haeusser is a microbiologist who recently began working Assistant Professor at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, where he mentors undergraduates both in the classroom and in the lab with research involving phage (virus) subversion of bacterial cell division. He also regularly writes and edits for the American Society for Microbiology blog Small Things Considered. In his spare time he enjoys reading all sorts of books from the dark and deviant to the latest mainstream lit, which he reviews at Reading 1000 Lives and through contributions to various larger venues. By pen, typewriter, and laptop Daniel does attempt to create fiction; someday you may actually see it in print.
