RONE Awards
  • The number of overall finalists in each category is based on the number of books qualifying in that genre. Genres with a very high number of books will have more overall finalists than those genres with a relatively few number of books competing.  This ensures the highest level of fairness possible for each book.
  • As was stated in the RONE awards rules, all 5 star rated books automatically become finalists.  Therefore, depending on the number of 5 star rated books, the number of finalists picked in this round will be different in each genre.

* Please be aware that because of the extremely high number of books we review, the qualifications for the 2018 RONE Awards will be changing. Next year only 4.5 and 5 star rated books will become nominees and all will go through the reader voting round.

Voting schedule for the 2017 RONE Awards

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...☺️

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.
