Aye, aye! We have news, zombie lover folks!
We've got almost 40 entries on the Zombie Luv Contest, which in our view is huge! We're totally *doing crazy dance*, heh.
There's some great stuff there, which makes it all the more difficult to judge and choose a single winner, even if there'll be at least one honorable mention.
We need more time to decide, so we'll make the winner's big announcement on July 22th.
Please bear with us. It's just an extra week. ;)
Also, we feel that the poll was too large in options and too short in voting time. We'd like to give you more time to read and choose your favorites, this way you can also help us out with our dilemma. (the honorable mention one ;)
That's why we're extending the poll up until July 20th, midnight EST.
Another reason for this extra time is that the blogger widget wasn't working well for everyone, the lazy bastard! heh
The solution I came up with is transferring the poll to the comments. I'll consider all votes accepted by the widged so far, and I'll compile the votes you leave on the comments in a spreadsheet.
The poll's result will be announced on the same day as the contest's winner.
Here are the guidelines for voting:
- You may vote for as many entries as you like. Just name them on the comments.
- Anonymous votes will be disregarded.
- Contestants may vote for themselves, but they must vote for at least one other entry as well.
- If the widget has decided to work for you, please be a good sport and refrain from voting again. I have no way of controlling this.
You'll find the complete list of entries at the bottom. Have a great reading time! :D
Now, since you'll have an entire extra week to read all these fantastic stories, you can also take a peek at the my interview at The Penny Dreadful twitter chat -- Tuesdays, at 4pm EST -- where I talked about how the contest came to be and other things.
I had much fun and I hope you'll have some reading it too. :)
Psst, don't miss the chance to explore the TPD's website. Awesome stuff in there!
I loved it and felt most honored, Tony. Thanks! :D
