Ok so there's been a ton of twitter discussions about who should be and who isn't nominated for a Bookie.
Lemme clear the air here. ALL NOMINATIONS WERE DONE BY FANS (and after seeing the nominations lists, by people who are trying to turn this award into a popularity contest if all the posts on FB and Twitter trolling for votes is any indication). IF SOMEONE YOU FEEL SHOULD BE NOMINATED ISN'T, THEN BE ACTIVE NEXT YEAR AND NOMINATE.
The Bookies are supposed to be for the authors by the fans. its their CHOICE to choose who they will for each category, and having authors trolling for votes takes the actual fairness out of it. Would you rather win because people voted for you purely or because you hawked your nomination to everyone that can give you a vote?
That being said, Congrats to everyone nominated, And This year's event is going to be a little bigger, longer and done during Lunch! More as things progress on that though.
So... What say you?
