    It's Sunday - and for a change I have got the day off.

    Let's get on with the listing, shall we?

    I put this list up every morning and 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.

    If I have missed anyone please let me know either with a PM or by posting a link here in the thread.

    Happy scouting to you all!

    Is it possible to add "Domestic Goddess" to the list?

    Thank you.

    It isn't necessarily or bust. Some books were picked with low hours h and the.  I think the thing is people like to support the books they think are winning so some people might view but not nominate. Essentially the trick to get on hot and trending is to be on hot and trending. Counter intuitive I know.

    Reach out to people and try to get some friend nominations judt to get on hot and trending and then see if it sticks. That's the real barometer.

    Just read "Raven's Peak" and voted. Great story, nice writing. May the Force be with you on voting.

    It's Monday and I'm going back to work a little later this morning. I need to pay the bills. I hope that there is no one in this group right now whose first or middle or last name is Bill, because I really hate all Bills right now.
    :)

    Let's get on with the listing, 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

    4 days left Raven's Peak by Lincoln Cole
    5 days left Starborn Connection by Danielle Kazemi
    5 days left The Nether by R'Lee R. Coffey
    6 days left The Spirit Tree by Kathryn M. Hearst
    7 days left The Overstolz Code by Eugene Lloyd Macrae
    7 days left The Girl in the Boston Box by Chuck Latovich
    10 days left Fallen Heart by Beck Robertson
    11 days left Red Rabbit by Toby Tate
    12 days left Yesterday's Prince by H.D. Lynn
    12 days left Domestic Goddess by Deb Schneider
    14 days left No Reason to Hide by P.H. Turner
    17 days left Son of Lot by Karol Lagodzki
    21 days left The Saturday Evening Girls Club by Jane Healey
    24 days left Nordic Nights by Christine Anne Libbey
    24 days left Take the Body and Run by Jada Ryker
    26 days left Stolen Hearts by Rohit Gahlowt

    I put this list up every morning and 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.

    This way folks can readily check out the kboarder members who have a book in the running and can make up their own mind.
     
    If I have missed anyone please let me know either with a PM or by posting a link here in the thread.

    Happy scouting to you all!

    I got The Nether, too. And Raven's Peak. They are going to be awesome. I expect to read both for free because they will get picked.

    I hope so!

    I updated all of my tweets this week to reflect that my campaign for a #horror novel ends on #Friday13th.

    Coolest day to end it possible!

    Anyway, for stats:

    5 Days left, ends midnight on Friday (the 13th! AHAHAHA)

    Me too. It joined Raven's Peak and Starborn connection.

    So far, none of my picks and been picked, so you 3 can let me know if you think I'm a curse and want me to deselect you. But in reality, most of my picks are still in review.

    Thank you Heather, Karol, JaneHealeyUnga, Vincent, Heather, and anyone else who votes for The Nether. My current stats are 1.7k page views and 474 hours in H and T.  Heather, I don't think you have anything to worry about, though I don't envy you right now. The waiting period seems pretty brutal.

    The nether has been sitting on H&T pretty much it's entire campaign! it's gotten tons and tons of internal support from kindle scout fans, which is a huge plus!

    8 books expire on Friday (along with mine) and then I think like 6-8 expire with yours. Hopefully, from all of those ours climb out on top!

    I nominated "Raven's Peak" when Vincent's campaign ended. I predict "Raven's Peak" will be pecked. Er...I mean picked!

    Thank you, Steve, for the running list, and thanks to everyone who viewed my Kindle Scout campaign :) The stats showed 6 views from KBoards. Love it! If anyone doesn't want to nominate it, I totally understand (there is a cat on the cover, but in his defense, he's grumpy and doesn't want to be there). But at least check out the authors and think about nominating them.

    I am also reading Steve Vernon's 30 Days on Kindle Scout. You can find it here: https://stevevernonstoryteller.wordpress.com/how-to-win-at-kindle-scout/. If you're on now or thinking of submitting, you should check it out. My favorite: the drinking game based on the stats. Cheers!
