With Australia's federal election well and truly over, it's a good time to grab your voting hats and leg it on over to the Spinetingler Awards Shortlist.

Why, you say, why, Daniel?

Well, old mate, old chum, old pal, it's because iffun once you get there you scroll down a teensy tadbit, you'll be finding my first and last name under the nominations for Special Services to the Industry. Now that don't mean I've been handing out free lube to all the crime fiction kiddies, no siree, it's all about this wild and crazy social network I created and maintain, the one that all of you are reading this on, the one called Crimespace.

And while I'm being all forthcoming and such, I figure it's a good idea for me to be honest with you, my voting public. All the other people nominated for the same award have been giving good to the crime fiction world on the internet for longer and better than yours truly.

But to be equally honest, I'd like you to vote for me. Also, check out all the other categories while you're at it and vote for fellow Australian nominees, Amra Pajalic and Text Publishing.
Here's how:
Voting is open. ONE E-MAIL PER PERSON ONLY. You cannot send another vote in, even for a different category – multiple votes from the same sender will not be counted. Take the time to consider your votes carefully. E-mails must be received by December 30, 2007 - authors, if you're putting this in your newsletter make sure you are clear about the deadline for voting. Many recommendations were not considered in the first round because they were sent late.

You may vote for one winner in each category as long as all votes are submitted in one e-mail. Simply state the category and your chosen winner for each of the eight categories. Any votes that contain more than one selection per category may be removed from consideration completely. No ties.

Send your e-mail to sandra.ruttan@spinetinglermag.com with AWARD NOMINATIONS in the subject line. It is not necessary to explain the reason for your vote.

I saw that announcement - seriously excellent. Been a while since we've had to search through the fine print for something positive for poor old "Australian Culture" to come out of Canberra.

Hey, all I did was cut & paste and tweak to suit. But I am feeling a bit mushy about old Rudd at the moment. Did you read this?

It's worse than I thought - the bloody tie has cut off the blood circulation and you're READING like a politician.

Loosen the knot man before you start talking fluent bureaucratess (in Mandarin :) )

Yeah, I wouldn't have worn the yellow tie if my wife hadn't told me to. ;)

I stand ready to provide any assistance, such as energy assistance, bilateral development or any safeguard expertise that I may be able to offer, specifically in line with the casting of said votes in this award climate that is currently precipitating.

Oh god - not that bloody tie again!

If you break into Mandarin I'll not be held responsible for any responses!
