Vote for my book in the Wonderland Awards!!!

That’s right, there might be an award in my future.  Right now, preliminary voting begins for the Wonderland Awards, a true I-shit-you-not honor among us literary weirdos.  Only two people win every year, one award for Best Novel and another for Best Collection.  The winners the last four years have been the best writers bizarro fiction has to offer.  Now, my book A Town Called Suckhole on the list for Best Novel.  If I get enough votes then my book will go on the ballot in November and maybe even win an award…. which would be pretty fucking cool.

How to vote?  Peruse the two lists below.  These are all the bizarro books released this year.  Just send your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place votes in the Novel and Collection categories to bizarrocon@yahoo.com with the subject line “Wonderland Book Award Preliminary Ballot.”  Make sure you vote for A Town Called Suckhole and two of your other favorite novels!
