Yay! Agents of Ki made FINALIST in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards contest for Best High Fantasy Novel of 2015. The first three stages were nomination and curated examination by the eFestival of Words judges. Hundreds of fantasy novels were whittled down to a Final Seven.
The final stage, however, is by popular vote. To win, Agents of Ki must get more votes than the other six fantasy novels, every one of them a fine work of art. Most of the other books are by authors with much more established readerships than I have, so I need every vote I can get!
Please mosey on over to the eFestival of Words website to give Agents of Ki a vote! You need to sign up first so they can make sure nobody tries to cheat by stuffing the ballot-box. To entice you to hop on over, I wrote a little blurb there in the thread beneath the ballot box about how the cover art for Agents of Ki came into being, including the symbols and inspirations included in the image.
Thanks so much for voting!!!
P.S. – and as a

REGISTRATION INFO: When you first click-through, it will bring you to a blank page. Click ‘register’ in the top toolbar (just beneath the logo) and it will bring you to a registration page. At the bottom of that page is a little video CAPTCHA that’s a short advertisement from Citizen’s Bank and a couple of other sponsors (as eFestival of Words is non-profit). When you click ‘play’ a message that says ‘Please Enter: XXX’ will show up in the black bar at the bottom of the video. Type that in as your CAPTCHA and then click enter. The ad pays for eFestival to keep up their website for the coming year, nothing more. Otherwise they never email you except to invite you to nominate books in early spring, vote come July, and then announce the winners in August. Just click the link above a second time and it will bring you to the High Fantasy voting page.
