The people have spoken. We are very excited to present the 75 Favourite Australian Novelists, as voted on over the past week.
This is not in order, for the order will only be decided once you cast your final vote. Next week we’ll announce the Top 50 day by day, culminating in the Top 10 being announced on Friday the 25th of January.
A huge thanks must go to all the authors, without your gifts to us there simply wouldn’t be a poll to vote on. Don’t forget, if you see any novelists here you love don’t just vote, get in contact with them to let them know they’re here, and with some noise could be a big player next week when we announce the top 50.
This poll will be up all week and will close at midday on Sunday. As before, you can vote for as many novelists as you like, but you can only vote once. Unlike the last polls, for the suspense, you won’t be able to see the results immediately. That will all be unveiled next week.
We also had feedback that some people didn’t vote for the big names in the heats, knowing that they’d go through without their vote. Well, this is the time the big names need your vote, this is the big one, the final, and every vote counts towards deciding who is Australia’s Favourite Novelist!
