I am going to vote for Sophias Tune as well! Although I was intrigued by several others. The note up top says this is the voting form-if not, how do we access it?

Kathy -- just after the books, there's a box with a burgundy-coloured stripe at the top that says "October and November 2015 New Releases Clash" and the next stripe says "Vote." I'm using Chrome, and can only see the first title, but when I click inside the voting area, I can use my computer's down-arrow to navigate to the other choices. Once you click on your choice, arrow down some more to find the button to submit your vote. It might be easier in different browsers, I don't know.

Thank you for explaining, Janet and Kathy. Yes, this isn't the friendliest of venues for other devices, though we have tried to keep the forms user friendly in all arenas. Technology surpasses itself sometimes. Thank you all again for your patience and support! The main thing is to get our names out there and introduce ourselves to the reading public.

I vote for "After" by Joy Ohagwu. I love the phrase 'one step will transform her life' and the fact that the lady in the picture seems to be walking on an edge. Pretty catchy!

Janet Sketchley said... Thursday, 10 December, 2015

"Technology surpasses itself sometimes." That's a good way to put it, Lisa. Thanks for all you and your team do to bring us new books every month... and for including mine in this month's challenge.

I vote for Sophie's Tune! It's definitely on my TBR list!

Leanna Hollis said... Thursday, 10 December, 2015

"I have read After. It is a wonderful book with authentic characters who have the kind of real struggles we all face. Their faith helps them overcome, but it is no easy task. I love this book and have recommended it to others. It's one of the best I've read this year."

Deborah said... Thursday, 10 December, 2015

I vote for 'After'! The cover is easy to associate and relate - a path is unfolding all women have walked! I will say, it was tough to narrow it down. Each cover has great qualities.

Jewell Tweedt said... Monday, 14 December, 2015

I vote for my Christmas Bells. It is part of Love's Christmas Past.

The Survey Monkey is embedded at the end of the post. For those who don't see it, are you perhaps on a mobile device? Maybe it isn't rendering right for that. Can you try your laptop instead?

Thanks for participating! :)

When I hit view web version, the form was there.
