Idol B

Green Room - Week 7 - Day 8

I haven’t read it yet, but I did receive my copy of the Fae Fatales anthology from our friends at Solarwyrm Press http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=23 and had the chance to flip through it. It looks gorgeous. Granted, it would have looked better with a large font dedication to me and/or Idol that covered the first half of the book. But really, what book *wouldn’t* be better with that? ;)

Even with that noticeable flaw though, it looks like it’s well worth you checking out, and supporting your fellow Idol contestants. The vast majority of people featured in the anthology came through this hallowed institution, which is always exciting!

Oh, and I *am* a week or so away from putting together a list for the new Community Chest, so maybe someone will want to get some copies for that! ;) Just saying!

Seriously though, good job Solarwyrm!


In other news – there is a poll going on, and things are looking *tight* http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/670715.html. Which means it’s that time again for you to make the case for your favorite entries from the week that aren’t getting as much attention as you would like. Voting turnout still hasn’t exploded – probably due to the summer – which means that every vote you can sway could make the difference! If you have read something fantastic – tell people about it! Not a “go vote for them, just ‘cause!” But let them know why they should bother to read it, convince them to go to read, and let the work itself convince them to take the next step and vote to keep them in another week!


Oh, and Happy Birthday to our own notodette!

Results - Week 7

It was another close one this week! But having lost the only previous winner at the start of this poll, we knew that it was going to be a lot more wide-open than many were beginning to think. Which is always the point of any given season when things get interesting - when folks start realizing, “Wait - it COULD be me!” and start realizing that it’s *their* Green Room and *their* polls, it’s not just something set in place, but rather something that they can make their own mark upon. Things are just going to get even more interesting as we go, especially with an immunity to be given to someone still out there...

Unfortunately, there are two people from each poll who will be making that mark from the Home Game.

They all had an awesome run, but in the end, there can only be one person left.

Leaving us this week are:


Thank you for coming out, and I hope we continue to see you around, and in the Home Game!

Topic - Week 8

This week is a little different than normal. Well, not “idol normal”, but Exhibit B normal.

I’m giving you topics. You are choosing TWO OF THEM and linking your ENTRIES back to this thread by Monday, July 15th at 9pm EDT. Which may be the longest I’ve ever given for just two topics. :D

The topics are:
When I Was Young.
the email that made you feel like a BAMF
The heart of time
Smells like rubbing alcohol
Design flaw

Have fun!
