  1. I was curious to know how Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel Jose Older made it to the list when it has a release date of Jan 6, 2015. Does that mean we can nominate books up to that date?

  2. @Diana:

    Alas, no. We goofed. We’ll substitute another book shortly! Sorry and apologies and thank you!

  3. Re: Fair play. Actually no, “Fair game” was the first book, “Fair play” came out last year and is eligible .

    Sirius.

  4. Can you remind me what the parenthetical numbers next to the titles in the pick sheet are, please? Is that ranking, seed or whatever we call it? Thanks.

  5. Vampire Charming by Cassandra Gannon. Or anything by Cassandra Gannon, especially her Elemental Phases series, of which the latest book was published in 2014: Magic of the Wood House. The series is a whole new take on paranormal romance and destined mates, and independently published.
