[OCT 2015] - TNotSSmbtoaFBbtSiathatdwtB - Voting Thread
« on: November 01, 2015, 12:41:14 PM »
It's time to vote on October's Writing Contest: TNotSSmbtoaFBbtSiathatdwtB (or as I call it, 'the books one'!)

We got 16 entries this month!

Thanks to all of you for participating - we've been having quite a lot of entries this year, and even in the months where it seems there will be less, you come up with the goods at the last minute :D (this time there were 4 entries on the last day hehe)

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your four favourite entries in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Awesome.

But I'm getting 404-Page-Doesn't-Exist for the .mobi's.

doh.

helps if i build the new file AND push it.

fixed!

also, i now have it printing out my notification message, so it's just a copy-paste to get it into the forums.

yay, automation!

You know, if you have a pretty epub, you could also let go and just feed the epub to an app like Calibre, that does beautiful conversions from one to the other  ;D

Also just realised there were 5 written in 1st person out of 16 entries. Which is quite interesting.

Voted. Very tough to choose my fourth vote from among four competing for the last slot.
Really fun stories this month!
