Authors After Dark 2013: GraveTells nominated for Blog of the Year!

by davincikittieOctober 31, 2012

Ok, you know how sometimes you open your cabinet and there’s a candy bar there that you totally forgot you had, and how you get that feeling of “oooo!” and smile really big?  Take that and multiply by like a THOUSAND and that’s how happy you guys made me tonight, when I found out GraveTells is a nominee finalist in the 2013 Authors After Dark Bookie Awards for Blog of the Year.

Best. Candy bar. EVAR.

I believe the winners are announced at the convention, which isn’t until next August, and I have no idea how many times you can vote or if there is a cut off for submitting your votes… and I’m sure you’re all still reeling from my barrage of “Vote for GraveTells!” posts for the Bloggy Awards in August (moment of nerd gamer humor: *DVK’s Effervescent Excitement crits you for 926 periodic shadow damage*), so I’m not going to campaign this one.  😉  I am SUPER stoked that you all appreciate what we do here at GT enough to nominate us enough times to get onto that very short list of fantastic blogs (Mr. Romance Man, YOU ROCK!) and hopefully I’ll get to meet those of you who attend the conference.  I’m going to put up a voting banner at the top of the site and a button on the sidebar that will take you to it, so those of you who want to vote can have easy access.

I was also excited to see several of the authors, books, and publishers we’ve featured this year on the nominee list!  Here are a few shout-outs to some lovely people who have spent quality time with us here at GT…

  • Joey W. Hill (holy nominations, Batman!)
  • Rebecca Zanetti
  • Gena Showalter
  • Kendall Grey
  • Caridad Piniero
  • Carrie Ann Ryan
  • Katie Reus
  • Laura Kaye
  • Elisabeth Naughton
  • Deborah Cooke
  • Lynn Rush
  • Brigid Kemmerer
  • Eve Langlais
  • Lisa Kessler
  • Yasmine Galenorn
  • Entangled Publishing
  • Torquere Press
  • Ellora’s Cave
  • Samhain Publishing
  • Connlan Kayrs (my favorite swoon-worthy hero *yes I like him more than Bones!* from Rebecca Zanetti’s Hunted)
  • Lady Lyssa (queen of all things vampire in Joey W. Hill’s incredibly hot and addicting Vampire Queen series)
