I Am Not Above Shameless Award Elbowing

The opening round of the Goodreads Best Books of 2013 contest is live.

It is full of really wonderful books. (I mean, holy crap, have you read V.E. Schwab’s Vicious, yet?) A bounty of great books on there by wonderful authors: Robin Hobb, Richard Kadrey, Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, Joe Hill, Margaret Atwood, James S.A. Corey, Marko Kloos, John Scalzi, Hugh Howey, Diana Rowland and so on. Hell — three of my Taco Brothers are on there: Kevin Hearne, Brian McClellan, Jason Hough. Proving I eat tacos with bad-ass people.

Again: amazing group of books and authors. Bonus: new books to buy and read!

Last year, I had no book in the 2012 first round — ahh, but Goodreads allows for write-in books, which is how Blackbirds popped up last year. That’s awesome, because it means the readers loved the book enough to put it there. This also means you could, ohhhh, say, write-in a book this year like The Blue Blazes (paranormal fantasy!) or Under the Empyrean Sky (young adult fantasy/sci-fi!) were you so inclined.

Or you could write-in other books by other great authors you really enjoyed this year!

So, please go, and support the authors and books you’ve enjoyed.

If that includes me, fistbump.

If it doesn’t, no worries!
