Thank you M/M readers. I feel your pain about having to choose one nominee as your absolute favourite M/M author so that he or she could qualify as a finalist in our first Favourite M/M Author contest. You did great and we have a wonderful slate of finalists now that the nominations have closed. They are, in no particular order:
Abigail Roux/Madeleine Urban
Jordan Castillo Price
Although they didn’t make the list of finalists, what was amazing was the number of authors who were highly regarded by readers. Being an M/M author is a tough gig. Sure M/M is a much smaller pond than M/F but that means our authors live in a fish bowl, so those authors who came in just below the ‘cut’ line should be proud of their achievement. Here are a few of your nominees who came this close to being a finalist:
Now the fun part begins with the voting and good luck to all the finalists. Christian has set up a poll on the right hand sidebar just above the Reading Rooms. Of course there can only be one winner but I know that each one of your nominees is most deserving. Voting closes on Tuesday, December 20th. Reminder: You can only vote once, so mark your ballots wisely. 🙂
Huge thanks to Aunt Lynn, the official scorer and auditor and to Christian for setting up the poll.
