Nominated for ‘Author of the month’ by SpillWords Press

I am delighted to say that SpillWords Press has nominated me for ‘Author of the month’. The news came as a pleasant surprise via email and it’s all thanks to you, who not only read my work but took the trouble of liking it on SpillWords. Now, it’s time to cast your vote for ‘Author of the Month’ . The voting opens on 26th May 12.00 a.m EST and remains open for 4 days. The winning depends on a number of factors, one of which is to get the maximum number of votes. I would deeply appreciate it if you could click on the link below, login with your fb or google Id and cast your vote for me (if you like my work). If you haven’t already read my work, simply click on my name on SpillWords and read my poetry published so far by SpillWords Press. Do share this message on your pages if you like the poems so I can get the votes.

But, win or no win, I want to say, ‘Thank you’ for reading my work and getting me nominated. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.

Here is the link to cast your vote- https://spillwords.com/vote/

Just click on the link – login with Fb or gmail- click the three horizontal bars on the top left-hand corner of the screen (menu) – click on ‘Vote’ which is the last option on the menu – you get a list of nominees- cast your vote and wait for the message ‘Thank you for voting’. If it does not come or you close the box before it comes, the vote does not get registered. Another easy way of doing it is sending an email to with the name of the person want to vote for. If it’s me, then you need to say, ‘SmithaV’.

If the above steps seem tiresome, I understand. Don’t beat yourself thinking you aren’t tech-savvy. It is quite cumbersome. However, if you take the trouble of voting, please know that I greatly appreciate it.

The poem for which I was nominated is the one I shared recently. I am linking it here again just in case you want to read it before you cast your vote Published: Ye Birds on my Window sill

I have taken the below from the SpillWords site- just in case the voting button does not work, you can do the below

After clicking on the “Vote” button, you will see a small looping icon indicating that your vote is being finalized. Please give a sufficient time for this process to be completed, as sometimes the connection may lengthen the waiting period. If an error occurs and the icon stays looping indefinitely, please refresh the page and select your vote again. In 90% of time refreshing your browser will solve the problem. If the error persists, or for any reason you’re not able to vote via our voting page, you can cast a manual vote by sending us an email to vote@spillwords.com Please include your username and your vote in the body of the email.
