Three big fantasy imprints (Gollancz, Harper Voyager & Tor.com) alongside six popular & respected blogs (Fantasy Faction, Fantasy Book Review, Fantasy Book Critic, Parmenion, Grim Tidings & Kitty G) nominated some books for each category, creating the Longlist. Now, with your help, we will expand this list with 4 books for the first category, 2 for the second, and 4 for the third, making the numbers even in the process. At the end of each list, you will find a contact form where you must write the title of the book and the name of the author you want to nominate. The books with the most votes by the morning of 7th October 2017 will be added to the longlist, and then we will open the voting for the Shortlist. Be careful: Only fantasy novels published between October 2016 to September 2017 qualify for this year's awards. Please nominate books that are *not* already in the longlist.
And now to the nominations:
BEST TRADITIONALLY PUBLISHED NOVEL
BEST SELF PUBLISHED NOVEL
BEST DEBUT NOVEL
