CLFA Book of the Year Voting is Open

Conservative Libertarian Alliance Book of the YearThe Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance has released its ten finalists for book of the year. In a very strong year, featuring outstanding works by some great authors, sadly Beyond the Mist finished just outside the top ten in the initial nomination phase, so cannot be voted for.

The nominations are in and counted, and the CLFA is thrilled to present our ten finalists for the CLFA Book of the Year 2017!

Beginning in January 2017, CLFA members have been hard at work, compiling a list of our favorite 2016 releases. We ran several rounds of voting to refine the list to the top ten in the survey. For the final winner, we always open up voting to the public.

To be eligible, books must be fiction of any genre and of novel length (50k words or more), initially published in any form (print, digital, or audio) during the calendar year 2016. Books may be an indie, traditional, or anything-in-between publication.

Voting is open until midnight on March 31, 2017. Winners to be announced in April 2017. Have at it!

CLFA_BookBomb_graphic

The Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance is running another book bomb for twenty books today and tomorrow (22nd and 23rd July 2016). Nobility Among Us is on the list, as well as the second of L.J. Lamplighter’s excellent Rachel Griffin series.

A book bomb works by lots of people going on amazon and buying the same book on the same day, which boost’s the book’s rankings in amazon’s algorithms and makes it more visible to potential new readers. The author also gets paid for his work, as it should be. If you already have one of these books, please leave a review on Amazon (even if you don’t have much to say or someone else has already said similar things), as that also helps to boost that book’s visibility in amazon’s recommendations algorithm. If you’ve already done both of those, please tell your friends about this event in any way you can, on your blog, on twitter or facebook or any online community you are part of. (Please do that even if you haven’t bought it yet, spread the word as widely as possible!)
