Hi Mark,
Congratulations, your book has been nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award! This is a tremendous achievement as the Goodreads Choice Awards are the only major book awards chosen by readers.
Fifteen books have been nominated in 20 categories, including Fiction, Nonfiction, Mystery, Memoir, Young Adult Fantasy, and many more. Voting is open to all 12 million Goodreads members, and winners will be announced in December.
Three Chances to Vote!
Opening Round: October 30 – November 11

What You Can Do
  • Use the "Goodreads Choice Award Nominee" badge on your Web site and blog, and link it to your category.
  • The badge may also be used in advertising campaigns, both on Goodreads and elsewhere. (So as not to give undue advantage, ad campaigns running on Goodreads during the voting period must not link directly to the voting pages or use a "vote now" or similar call to action. Contact David Creechan at for more information.)
  • In December, we will provide "Goodreads Choice Award Winner" badges for use on your Web sites and blogs and in advertising campaigns.
  • You are welcome to use the Goodreads Choice Award nominee or winner badges on the next printing of the book. Young Adult winner Divergent and Romance finalist Fifty Shades of Greyboth highlighted their success in the 2011 Choice Awards on subsequent paperback editions.
  • Write a blog post thanking your fans and encouraging them to vote for your book.
  • Make a short video to rally your fans to vote.
  • Offer special content to thank fans for their support. Paranormal fantasy nominee Ilona Andrews even promised fans a short story upon making it to the 2011 finals.
  • Encourage fans on Facebook and Twitter to vote. Hashtag: #GoodreadsChoice
  • List a giveaway to fuel increased demand for the book.
  • Add an excerpt for new readers visiting the book's Goodreads page.
About the Nominations
Instead of consulting publishing experts or a judging panel, we look to readers to find the best books of the year. We analyze statistics from the 170 million books added, rated, and reviewed on the site in 2012 and nominate based on a book's number of ratings and average rating. So a nomination is truly an honor because it comes straight from the readers!
