If someone comes along and asks you to help them carry a couple of large pieces of wood, that they fastened together, up a hill – SAY NO.
In the meantime, you can always check out the results from last night: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/637427.html
And the “new” topics: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/637501.html
Which does remind me, if you submitted topics at the start of this mini-season, and haven’t seen them appear yet – *email me* and let me know. There was one person who got lost in the shuffle, and I want to make sure that there isn’t more than one.
Congratulations to our friends at SolarWyrm for meeting their Indiegogo Fundraising goal! I’m really looking forward to seeing their Fantasy Noir Anthology. Just remember, it’s spelled “Dreslinski”, and if you need the address to send a free copy as a “Thank You”, I can get it to you. ;)
At the very least, I *do* need a copy of the cover for my wall. (That goes for everyone else with a book who hasn’t sent me that yet! Seriously people, how I can look on his pride on what my Idolers are doing, and what we help spark, if I don’t have my wall up to date!)
They are currently looking for hire artists to do illustrations, so if you are an artist, or know someone, there’s a nice opportunity here: http://solarwyrm.com/2013/03/29/call-for-artists/
In other news, due to the apparent success of her last offering, ashgaelsonaria is making one of her other books available for free on Kindle from today until Tuesday, April 2nd. So, hey, free book! http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/B0075S3PJS
You can always check out the main store as well. http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20
Something that I’ve been meaning to do for awhile now, is featuring something every week or so. I haven’t gotten around to it. But I really should… I’m going to start with one that’s pretty heavy, but man is it important.
http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/B005CWN9TU Her Final Year: A Care-Giving Memoir by xo_kizzy_xo and her husband. Or http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20/detail/0615512054 for the physical copy. I actually have a copy of this one, so I can attest that it’s good.
Also, because of everything that has been in the news this week, check out the works of Tom Deitz. I call him a “Friend of Idol” even though he never did get to see it. But he was an awesome guy and one hell of a fantasy writer: http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20?_encoding=UTF8&node=16
