Saved you already to nominate later. Love it!!!  :D

Top ones nominated. So many good books ending close together! Lots of fun coming up in the waiting room I think.  ;)

Thank you, Nikki. I'm bringing a case of ice-cool beer to pass around!

Top three nominated and fingers crossed for those in the waiting room!

It's my birthday today!  For my birthday, my page views went over 2k.  This is certainly my most successful campaign so far.

Also for my birthday, all my eBooks are $.99.

I love birthdays!

Happy Birthday!!

Haha! I'm having anxiety already, I can't imagine how bad it will be once I'm in the waiting room! I think I need more than one bottle of wine!!!  :P

Whilst it would have been nice to get an offer from the Scouts instead of a reject, I am glad I only had 48 hours of anxiety and cookies before I was kicked out of the waiting room! Good luck -- I've already got yours nominated!

Thanks, Lincoln. That's what I figured, but being new to the world of e-pubbing, I wanted to check.

Did that agent offer you a good deal on a really nice bridge, too?

Yeah, and it came with a free swamp!

Top 3 nominated, good luck, guys!

Got a week left for me... looking forward to the boost I'll get in the last few days of my campaign, because stats haven't been so great this time around.

Thanks for that, Mary! I've just nominated your book and wish you best luck with it (between my wife and I, we always have six slots available for the titles at the top of the list).

Hey Sunday. How you doing?

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

1 day left Fallen from Grace by Nikki Landis
1 day left The Modern Mage by T.J. Flaxman
4 days left Shipley Bridge by David Thompson
6 days left Black Sun Ascension by T.S. Starkenberg
6 days left Finding Home Again by Mary Head
8 days left Self Possessed by Lee Isserow
11 days left Nick of Time by Julianne Q. Johnson
13 days left The Everett Exorcism by Lincoln Cole
14 days left The Shadow Girl by Misty Mount
18 days left Beyond Gaza by Yvonne Crow
18 days left The Lost Spy by Kate Moira Ryan
19 days left Heart of Time by Skye Mackinnon
21 days left Justice Returns by William Bernhardt
22 days left I Rode for the Wigglin' W by Flynn Mcguin
25 days left The Summoner by M.C. Glan
25 days left The Book of Witches by Leena Maria
25 days left Unknown Presence by Alicia Rivoli
26 days left Hunter's Soul by Stacey Oakley
26 days left The Lost Word of Khymera, Part II by Theresa A. James

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!
