Folks, I have decided to hold a companion contest to go along with the poll to name my iPhone! This one will be for everybody who did NOT get a name into the poll. However, what makes it a companion contest is that I want to see supporters for various names campaign for their favorites!
The original poll post is here. Check that out for the full list of names as well as the current voting results!
Rules as follows:
- The stakes are the same: the winner will receive either a copy of Faerie Blood, or, if he or she owns it already, a copy of the book of their choice from the Drollerie Press bookshop.
- Campaigns should be in the form of drabbles (100 words of prose, for those of you who don’t know that term), LOLpics (with or without cats), filks, rousing campaign speeches, or whatever else comes to mind! Bonus points if you invoke any of my known fandoms*. Extra bonus points if you invoke anything having to do with Faerie Blood, for those of you who have read it already.
- Campaigns must be for names that are in the actual poll. No fair campaigning for a name that’s not actually in the running!
- Please post your campaign material in the comments of this post (at angelakorrati.com, if you’re reading this on LJ or anywhere else I mirror to).
- If you have a name entered into the poll, you are not eligible to participate in this contest. You are however welcome to shamelessly rally your supporters to your cause!
- This contest will expire along with the poll one week from today on Monday, July 27th.
So get cracking, people, campaign season is ON!
* Good fandoms to invoke: Great Big Sea, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Elfquest, Pern, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Star Wars, Star Trek (TOS), Temeraire, Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, zombies!
