Goodreads 2011 Choice Awards and The Night Strangers

So, THIS was a pleasant surprise: THE NIGHT STRANGERS is a finalist in the Horror Category of Goodreads 2011 Choice Awards.

I must confess, I did not see that coming

And what thrilled me the most was this: The process.

According to Goodreads’ Jessica Donaghy, “We analyzed statistics from the 87 million books added, rated, and reviewed on the site in 2011 to list 15 books in 22 categories–that’s 330 nominations. We did not consult a panel of experts or form a secret committee of publishing insiders. Readers know what’s good and what’s great. These nominations are based on a book’s number of ratings and average rating as pegged by the more than 6 million members on Goodreads.”

So, I am profoundly grateful to a LOT of Goodreads readers.  Thank you.

And because I am so deeply appreciative, I am going to be REALLY presumptuous and ask a favor.



IF you liked it a lot. . .

Please vote for it

NO pressure — I mean that! — but here is the link.

Thanks again — all of you rock.

All the best,

Chris B.
