DABWAHA Final Four Voting Is Nearly Done!

sidebarlogoWe are at a crucial juncture in the Final Four at the DABWAHA. Who will survive to the Championship Round? You decide with your votes. (cue ominous music).

Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs won out over popular contemporary romance, Blue Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas in the first set of voting in the Final Four. Right now The Spymaster’s Lady by Joanna Bourne (would she rather win the DABWAHA or the RITA?) is facing a very close vote with Maya Banks’ polyamorous tale of love between one woman and three men, Bet Me.

The voting is open until midnight EDT tonight. Go forth and vote. Every vote does count in this competition.

    Is anyone else having trouble voting? I don’t remember voting already today but when I go to vote it just shows the result. In the past it’s always shown an option to vote even when I have voted, this just makes it as if the poll is closed.

    @ldb Sometimes it will show you haven’t voted if you log in on a computer that you didn’t vote on, but it won’t allow you to vote, if you’ve voted from the same IP address.

    I was surprised that The Spymaster's Lady managed to come from behind to win. Then again, a lot of people did pick it to win the whole thing.

    I managed to pick the correct two finalists on my 2nd chance ballot. Too bad I didn’t get much else of it “right” – LOL

    Iron Kissed for the win on Monday!

    Oh well, all’s well that ends well, I guess I voted and just forgot, which is a little maddening because that lapse of memory seems to happen WAY too much.
