2012 Rone Awards

I woke up to a very exciting email this morning. I sent a copy of my first novel, The Gates of Nottingham to Ind'Tale magazine quite a while back, but never heard from them again. As it turns out, I must have gotten lost in their email pile because they not only read my book, they gave it a four star review!

Furthermore, because it garnered such a great review, it's been entered into their 2012 Rone Awards under the Historical - Pre-Medival category. This award comes down to a vote, so now I have to rely on you, my lovely readers, to help me out.

You can vote for me here. Unfortunately, to keep the poll honest, you will have to register with them. I can attest that the registration is easy and you won't be sent millions of emails from them. Actually, this is the first email I've ever been sent by them, so you probably won't be bothered at all.

I would really appreciate the votes on this. I worked very hard on this book. It's my first baby. So, to see it getting some attention is mind-blowing.

Thanks all!

BTW, I also got another four star review on Amazon. This is an awesome morning.


  1. Informative article, just what I needed.

  2. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
    going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
    unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. This blog is run through blogger and I would recommend them as a web host. They have a number of templates and color plates and your design is very easy to personalize. Thanks for asking!

  3. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think of if you added some great pictures or video clips
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial
    in its field. Amazing blog!

    1. That is very flattering and I would love to incorporate more multi-media. The trouble at this point is in funding. I work very hard for a living and do not have much spare cash. I do not own a good camera (video or picture) nor do I have any smart devices (phones, tablets, etc.)

      For the time being I am operating the old fashioned way. Do you have any cost effective suggestions for devices to help?

  4. Saved as a favorite, I love your blog!

    I was researching on Bing for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to
    say cheers for a remarkable post and a all round thrilling blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all
    at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also included your RSS feeds, so when
    I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do
    keep up the excellent work.
