Your votes determine who will move on to the Final Four. Voting closes at 3:30pm CST on Fri, April 1, in order to allow us time to create the next survey which will open at 12:01 am April 2.

You may vote for whomever you choose, and we encourage you to pick a few upsets. Correctly predicting the upset is what makes for a winning bracket! You can also influence the voting heavily by asking friends and family to vote for your picks. All you need is a unique email each time a vote is entered.*

So, vote early and vote often. Follow @BCPublishers on Twitter to see voting updates, quotes from winning and losing authors, and more.
