I am sad to report that our system is detecting deceptive voting by some. I am happy to announce that most of you are running a clean race to get your votes. I am even happier to state that we know exactly which votes have been made in a less than honest manner and these votes are immediately place into a detainment file and never make into to the poll where the votes are counted.
The purpose of using a voting system is to get a buzz going about your book and to determine which book people want to read the most. By trying to circumvent the system you have cheated yourself from determining how people are honestly responding to your book. You have also clearly displayed to us your own personal character. We seek to develop a long-term relationship with our authors so demonstrating less than admirable qualities is not endearing yourself to us. I respectfully ask those of you doing this to cease at once. If you do not stop your book will be disqualified.
For those who are working hard to get the word out about the contest, I applaud you! You are demonstrating the precise type of author we enjoy working with. The month has only begun so continue to work hard and run a clean race to get your votes and may the best book win!
