I've got the top three nominated.  Man, it's tough in the waiting room.  Trying to keep on trucking with book 2 but can't resist email refreshing to see if there's any news.
Good luck! Sitting in the waiting room is rough!
I had a co-worker who had her browser open to my book's nomination page, and she found out a little while before I did because it changed on the page before I got the email. She didn't tell me though! When I came back to her office after I found out, she told me she knew already and that I had just happened to walk into her office as she was reading it and didn't know what to say so she said nothing. I'm glad she didn't tell me because I needed a moment by myself after getting the rejection anyway. Hopefully your news will be better than mine was!

I now have ten books in the KS waiting room, and I can't even imagine how the authors must feel at this moment. Hoping for some wins here soon!

It's Sunday morning. I've checked the weather report and they're calling for warm and dry, so I think I might take the morning to paint the back shed. It needs replacing because it is rusting to pieces but we're going to need to get a couple of years more out of it - so paint will have to do.

Now let's get on with today's list, shall we?

Remember - the campaigns that need nominations the most are the ones that are closest to the LAST DAY LEFT, 1 day left, 2 days left etc.

Updated List

LAST DAY LEFT! Ghosts in Glass Houses by Kay Charles
LAST DAY LEFT! A Return to Fallbrook by T.T. Rankin
LAST DAY LEFT! Unimaginary by Patrick Tylee
4 days left No Place in Eden by Hilary Murray
4 days left The Things We Do For Love by Anita Louise
5 days left Plunge by John Greco
5 days left The Smart One by Joe Clifford Faust
6 days left The Book Knights by J.G. Mckenney
6 days left Night of the Webcam by Robertson Tait
6 days left Thread of a Spider by D.L. Gardner
8 days left Fallen from Grace by Nikki Landis
8 days left The Modern Mage by T.J. Flaxman
11 days left Shipley Bridge by David Thompson
13 days left Black Sun Ascension by T.S. Starkenberg
13 days left Finding Home Again by Mary Head
15 days left Self Possessed by Lee Isserow
18 days left Nick of Time by Julianne Q. Johnson
20 days left The Everett Exorcism by Lincoln Cole
21 days left The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount
25 days left Beyond Gaza by Yvonne Crow
26 days left Heart of Time by Skye Mackinnon
28 days left Justice Returns by William Bernhardt

I put this list up every morning and I strive to keep it up-to-date so that this thread needn't dissolve into a flurry of "NOMINATE MY BOOK, NOMINATE MY BOOK" posts. No one is under any obligation to nominate any of these books. I'm just trying to keep the thread clear of unnecessary clutter. This way once a day there is a complete list of current candidates and folks can readily check out the kboards members who have a book in the running and can make up their own mind. I try and stay nonpartisan about it - which is why I don't comment on any particular book by title. I just keep the list.
 
If I have missed anyone please let me know either with a PM or by posting a link here in the thread.

Happy scouting folks!

Thank you to everyone nominating UNIMAGINARY.

Your help has pushed the title into H&T for a full 27 hours straight.

The big orange stripe is fun to look at, but I know that my chances of being chosen have
more to do with the 14 months of rewrites and editing than any virtual meter of popularity.

Mostly, thank you to my Creator, the inventor of quantum physics, who holds everything together with His command to exist.
It amazes me that one of His names in Hebrew is AUTHOR. I am His idea.
We shall see what has been written on my upcoming pages...

- Patrick

I've got the top 3 nominated. I'm drooling over The Everett Exorcism. I must say that I've never been this grabby for a KS book. I used to live in Everett. I even miss the rain sometimes. The first pages are AWESOME! Good luck to everyone!

Hi Lincoln, thanks for sharing your ideas. I'm curious how you put the Instafreebie Group Giveaway together. Interesting concept. I use Instafreebie but haven't done much with it other than connect a couple of my free books to mailchimp. I actually do pretty well and add to my email list daily but I don't know anything about group promos. Would you mind sharing? Thanks!  :D

Two weeks left in my campaign, and my stats are much worse so far than my first campaign. I have yet to spend a full day in H&T (had one 23 hour day; close but not quite), and my hits are seriously pathetic. This isn't my first rodeo, so I know that these things are only a small piece of the overall puzzle, but it's still a bit discouraging.

Good luck to those on your last day; I've got you all in my noms!

Ghosts is now in the last 12 hours of its 30 days--which simultaneously came up very fast and took forever to arrive. It must be one of those timey-wimey things.

A huge thank you to everyone who nominated and to those who share their experiences here.

Here's a brand new interview for folks who need a giggle.

Great post! Folks, no matter how you choose to promote you should be reading Lincoln's blog posts!

Thanks so much! Makes me great to hear that some people like the package (and hopefully the book lives up!).

I'm having quite a bit of fun with this campaign and trying to just build up an audience as much as anything.

I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to nominate A Return to Fallbrook, without your support I'd most likely have a big fat zero hours in H&T (even if those hours don't tell us anything, it's still pretty cool to see!)

Best of luck to those already waiting and those about to take a seat in that waiting room!

Well, it is Monday. The weatherman lied about the warm and dry yesterday. It was too damp out for painting, but I did manage to mow the lawn and get some work done on my next manuscript and fire the barbecue up. I'm heading to work this morning, by the way of the public library to return a couple of books.

Let's get on with today's list, shall we?

Remember - the campaigns that need nominations the most are the ones that are closest to the LAST DAY LEFT, 1 day left, 2 days left etc.

Updated List

3 days left No Place in Eden by Hilary Murray
3 days left The Things We Do For Love by Anita Louise
4 days left Plunge by John Greco
4 days left The Smart One by Joe Clifford Faust
5 days left The Book Knights by J.G. Mckenney
5 days left Night of the Webcam by Robertson Tait
5 days left Thread of a Spider by D.L. Gardner
7 days left Fallen from Grace by Nikki Landis
7 days left The Modern Mage by T.J. Flaxman
10 days left Shipley Bridge by David Thompson
12 days left Black Sun Ascension by T.S. Starkenberg
12 days left Finding Home Again by Mary Head
14 days left Self Possessed by Lee Isserow
17 days left Nick of Time by Julianne Q. Johnson
19 days left The Everett Exorcism by Lincoln Cole
20 days left The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount
24 days left Beyond Gaza by Yvonne Crow
25 days left Heart of Time by Skye Mackinnon
27 days left Justice Returns by William Bernhardt
28 days left I Rode for the Wigglin' W by Flynn Mcguin

Cool video Patrick! You made this yourself?

Yes, I use Adobe Premier Elements 16.
Was lucky enough to buy the license, so I'm not stuck leasing Creative Cloud.

Well, look at that. My campaign is over. I'm in the waiting room.
