It's postponed so often that I forget this thread even exists in between bumps!

hey kids - just wandering past and stuck some votes in.
Sorry I've not been about much lately, it's been a crazy time of it. Plus my good lady has asked for book 3 for christmas of the dragons stories I write for her. Given my limited time I doubt I'll be able to get that down and do the monthly comps... but you never know, the right theme might tempt me out into the light.

Anyway.. much digital love to y'all...

12 hours left to vote for me make your votes, people.

Just make certain that whatever you do, you vote for me are confident you've chosen me the stories you're most happy to read provided they're mine. That's really all that matters. It's not, but I'm pretending it is to be humble.

Also, vote for me.

Or if you're a fan of grimdark, you could vote for me instead, and enjoy the sight of Rukaio's eyes filling with salty water  :P

On my computer now, and can't see a thing.

I guess, Lady ty, that it's not something to see, but something to smell : fear.  ;D  :P
