I've voted in these awards since 2009! And I've already voted in the opening round. I had a hard time choosing between a few of my favorites. In Romance, J.R. Ward, vs. Lara Adrian vs. Jeaniene Frost...oh so hard to choose! Also, the YA Fantasy & Science Fiction group was another a super hard choice. How to choose between Veronica Roth and Cassandra Clare?!?!? There are so many good choices, the competition is tough this year...Are you voting? Who are your favorites?
Voting for the Opening Round is now open, check it out!
