Last year, fans of Allies and Enemies like you paid me a great honor by making my first book a finalist for a 2016 Dragon Award hosted by Dragon Con. Not only was the experience humbling, it inspired me to go on to complete the series.

What do you say? Can I count on your help one more time?

As with last year’s competition, the two-step nomination/voting process is free and does not require the person doing the nominating to attend the actual convention or be a member of Dragon Con.

Plus, it’s a chance to give a shout out for your favorite movie, TV series, comic and other fandom categories for consideration.

Here’s all you need to do:

1.  Visit the link below to sign up. Don’t forget to click the box that says you’ve read the rules.

2.  You’ll receive a confirmation link via email. Use that to complete your nomination forms. (It’s a two step process if you’ve never voted before.)

3.  In the Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel category – please enter Allies and Enemies: Exiles and Amy J. Murphy in the respective title and author fields. (Because of the date of the release, only Exiles is eligible for the competition. The deadline for nominations is July 24, 2017.

When the nominations are tallied later this summer, you’ll receive a reminder email from the Dragon Award organizers with the “short list” candidates and final voting instructions.

Again, this is all free to you. I hope to count on your support for the 2017 Dragon Awards.

Going to Dragon Con 2017 in Atlanta, GA? Great! I’ll be planning a meetup at the con. Watch for announcements on my website or on twitter (@selatyron).

Thanks in advance for your help.
