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.

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.

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?

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? 

SORRY I ALREADY VOTED

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

Firstly, knowing what size you are considering, you can purchase a variety of sexy underwear online. buy nighty online

despite my own right to choose the winner, I wouldn't be surprised if any of the finalist took the prize home

My favorite of all time contastant is Novella but it seems the jury made a perfect decision due to the fact that Rone Awards are way more famous around the globe so it is so important to click2assignment and see the results flying to high position.
