Antonio’s question last week about female protagonists in UF becoming more concerned with getting their man than their antagonist sparked a thought, and a deeper answer to him has been expanded and guest posted over at SF Signal this morning. SF Signal Go see! And please don’t come away from this thinking I’m dissing romance. (sheesh!)
Also, the photo contest for photos seven and eight is now officially over, and a new, almost-last contest has begun. Thank you, everyone who entered their photos of concerts and the fountain at Fountain Square at winter. They are all fabulous! I’ll have my favorites up tomorrow. However, you still have three chances to win a copy of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER, or perhaps even more cool, a chance to have your photo in it.
This week it’s going to require a bit of arts and crafts on your part. It’s election year, and Trent Kalamack is running for Mayor of Cincinnati! The caption will read “Kalamack supporters prepare for tomorrow’s rally.” and I’m looking for a group of people doing exactly that, writing up posters, preparing flyers, wearing election hats, etc. 🙂 A posed picture of supporters won’t do. It has to look like a shot snapped on the fly. Think newspaper, and have fun with this one! Winner will receive a signed copy of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER when it goes to print. As a second thank you, winners can choose one of the signed, frame-worthy pages from the upcoming graphic novel BLOOD WORK (July 12) I’m trying to get something special for everyone who enters this one, so keep your fingers crossed that all entrants, win or lose, get a signed cover from THE HOLLOWS INSIDER. (I think there will be enough to do this for all the contests, so don’t be surprised if I come to you for your address at some point.) So get out your markers and poster board, and get busy and VOTE FOR KALAMACK! (grin)
I hope you all had a safe, happy Memorial Day holiday. I watched the parade, ate too much picnic food, and planted a few bushes in my yard. I think I’m done planting bushes. Now they just have to grow. 🙂
