This won't allow us to vote twice for novella or inspirational. I even tried to log out and log back in. Do we need to vote on a separate day?

Actually, in order to vote twice for a genre, you have to select multiple check boxes at once. However, that is possible only for categegories that have more than 25 nominees, which is for week one, only the Novella category.



I am honored that Christmas Love and Mercy was nominated in the inspirational category. There are so many wonderful authors in which to choose. I wish us all the very best!  Saundra Staats McLemore  Inspirational Author of Christmas Hotel Series


Can't seem to follow RONE week one  voting link. Am I too tech challenged? At least, it  won't work on my iPhone.

Still failed to load on my desktop. Is using the Firefox browser the issue?

The caption says it all...☺️

What am i doing wrong would like to vote but can"t seem to get to where i need to be. 

I Voted. Good luck to all. 

Voted love fangirl 

Love the FANGIRL cover by PMattern and Danielle James

I haven't voted yet, but it won't let me vote. Keeps coming up that my link is "banned". Is it my computer that's the problem? Or the server I'm linked to? 


I vote for Catherine Brun Brooks Burnt To A Crisp cover. Hope this suffices for my vote.
