SCROLL DOWN TO READ THE POST
Pyrite Time! Whoo!
It’s Pyrite time! Did you think we weren’t doing it this year? Nah, we just wanted to wait until we’d covered as much as possible of the year’s best.
Voting will happen in the comments. We’ll be doing our best to adhere to the RealPrintz voting procedures, as follows:
- Any officially nominated book is eligible; in our case, that means anything that’s been written up this season, plus the handful of books we’ll be posting in the next week*
- Voting for the winner books takes place first (the honor book vote will follow, and all books other than the winner will be eligible for the honor vote, regardless of whether they received votes in this round)
- Votes are weighted, 5 points for first place, 3 for second, 1 for first — Be sure to number your votes! You don’t have to vote for three books but you can’t skip positions – if you vote for two books, they get 5 and 3 points, not 5 and 1 or 3 and 1.
Voting will stay open until midday Wednesday, with the goal of posting our Pyrite winner by Wednesday evening
Take a minute to read back through all our “nominations” this year or just vote away!
*TK this week, in some cases in very brief form: The Smell of Other People’s Houses; Rani Patel in Full Effect; Tell Me Something Real; Girl Mans Up; Merrow; Julia Vanishes; Steeplejack; Spontaneous; Beast; Still Life with Tornado; Scythe; The Reader
