|It's DABWAHA TIME folks! This year, the bracket tournament of books has its own site, so check it out at http://dabwaha.com. If you're not familiar with it, the rules are simple: we have picked a slate of 64 books in 8 categories. Starting on March 15, you will be able to select the books you think will win in competition, advancing through the rounds until we arrive at Book of the Year. Brackets must be completed by 11:00 pm EST on March 18, 2009. Voting will start March 19, 2009, and will follow as closely as possible that other March tournament, the one with the basketball (Go North Dakota State!).|
Polls will be hosted on the DABWAHA.com site (don't worry, we'll give you a heads up on SBTB and DA when they go up) so you can vote for your choices.
There will be prizes for the best bracket in each of the rounds, and all the details, including the grand prize for the winning bracket and the winning author are at dabwaha.com.
You can enter by simply entering a UserID and email address. Each entry is entered in the database by Jane so there is a delay between when you register and when you see your userid in the list of entries. Please wait for about 3 hours before checking to see if your bracket has been submitted.
But here's the best part! Harlequin is so excited about their nominated books they've created a special store at eHarlequin to celebrate. Everything in that special store is 30% off with the coupon code 'MADROMANCE' - and you can click one button to add every book to your cart.
If you want paper copies, you can visit our Amazon.com store. Stay tuned for more buying options, and, of course, the start of the tourney bracket selection.
Big huge heaping thanks to our sponsors: Sony, Harlequin, Samhain Publishing, and Fictionwise.
