How many of you have heard of leserpreis? Probably not very many. What is it? Well, leserpreis is a German word that actually means “readers’ choice award.” And it’s time for the Leserpreis or Readers’ Choice Awards in Germany, which is the biggest people’s choice book award in the German-speaking world. So, more than 15,000 readers nominated over 4,000 books and authors in 15 different categories.
The exciting news is that my audio book for Awake at Dawn (Erwacht im Morgengrauen) was voted onto the short list for “Best Audio Book.” You can see the complete list at Lovely Books (http://www.lovelybooks.de/ leserpreis/2013/hoerbuch/).
Now the important part starts. Readers can vote for their favorite books until Thursday, November 28th. So you can go to Lovely Books and vote for the audio version of Awake at Dawn. You will have to log in to vote, but you don’t have to receive their emails unless you wish to. Then, on November 29th, the Leserpreis in Gold, Silver and Bronze will be awarded. So, be sure to vote.
