heart-bigIt’s time to vote for the winner of the 5th annual “Show Us Your Love” video contest!

We received a lot of really great videos this year with authors expressing their deep and abiding love for their books — and for Outskirts Press. We could only select three finalists, but you can check out all of the videos submitted for the contest in our YouTube Playlist here.

The three videos with the most “likes” on the Outskirts Facebook page from among all the entries submitted this year have been selected for a public vote to determine the winner. The poll ends Friday, February 26th, 5 p.m. MST, and the winner will be announced on March 1st.

Below are the three finalists for this year’s contest. Watch the videos and place your vote. The author whose video earns the most votes will win a brand-new 15.6 HP touch-screen laptop.
