CMT Moderator (cmtmoderator) | 47 comments Hello fellow Crime, Mystery & Thriller Readers,


Nominations for our June 2019 Subgenre Book of the Month are now open. To ensure your nomination will be included in our poll, please make sure it conforms to the following guidelines:

✔️ You may nominate one (1) book.

✔️Only members who have actively participated in prior book discussions will be permitted to nominate books for the following month. If you have recently joined the group, please do participate in the current month's discussion so you qualify as a valid nominator.

✔️By entering a nomination you are agreeing to act as our Discussion Leader for the month-long Book Discussion for that book, if it wins.

Don't worry it is neither difficult nor time consuming. The moderators are here to help in the event that you need a hand. Please refrain from nominating a book if you are not prepared to lead the discussion.

✔️ Your nomination should be a Police Procedural.

✔️Your nomination should not have been read by the group in the past 24 months.

✔️A book is only eligible if it is available in paperback and digital formats in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.

Please understand we are trying to give all our members the opportunity to participate in our book discussions. We don't want to exclude a significant portion of our members because they do not have availability to the book nominated.

✔️You may only nominate the first book in a series.

The 2nd and subsequent books in a series may be nominated only after the group has read the prior books in that series.

✔️Post your nomination as a comment below.

DO NOT notify the moderators of your selection by way of a private message, if you do you run the risk of your nomination being excluded from the poll.

✔️To ensure your nomination is included in our poll correctly, do include the name of both the book and the author.You would be surprised at how many books have the same title. You are welcome to use the "add book/author" tool, which is located above the right upper corner of the comment window when you nominate your selection.

📌AUTHORS please note: We DO NOT accept nominations of your own work. Please see our Author/Publisher Guidelines for more information. You are, however, welcome to participate in the nomination (of another author's work), polling, and book discussions in general.

If you have any questions, you can leave a comment in this discussion or message Gem or Jenny directly.

The nomination period will close on Sunday, April 28 at approximately 7:3o pm MST (UTC/GMT -7).

Polling will begin on Wednesday, May 1.

Thank you and happy reading!
The Crime, Mystery & Thriller Moderators

Alex, that book is not available in paper in Canada (and there is no expected release date). If you'd like to nominate another book, please send me a message by the end of the day. Thanks, Gem
