UPDATE, 11-13-09: The voting process has turned out to be slightly complicated, so Dave created a PDF with step-by-step instructions and pictures! Hope this helps!
Dave is one of 40 authors whose fiction book submission was accepted for a publishing promotional blitz by Marcher Lord Press (“The Premier Publisher of Christian Speculative Fiction”). By vote of fans and the general public, one of the 40 manuscripts will be selected and published in the spring.
Your vote could be the one! It is a 3-month process that involves just a few, simple steps (and a very small amount of your time reading each month). Each “registered voter” can only vote once each round, but there will voting in November, December, and finally January. Don’t quote me on these details, but I think the November voting will decide the top 10 entries, the December voting will decide the top 5 and then the January voting will determine the actual winning manuscript.
My humble request:
Become a registered voter and help Dave win! The publishing company will not be spamming you or selling your information. We won’t personally know if and when you registered and voted. It is private. But we’d be ever-so-grateful if you’d do this!
HELP! Here is how:
PRE-REGISTER to become a certified book-choosing voter!
- Click here: http://wherethemapends.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=mlpselect The page topper is titled: The Anomaly
- Click on: Create a New Account
- Make up a Username and Password
- Put in email address and minimal personal info (you won’t be spammed)
- Agree to the terms of the contest.
They will email you to make sure you are legitimate and not just our family voting for Dave a gazillion times. ALTAR is entry # 27. This month you’ll get to read a blurb and a synopsis of the story, which is really good, by the way.
First-round VOTING IS NOVEMBER 13, 14, 15!
Once you’re registered, you can go back in and vote on any one of these three days in November. And I believe Marcher Lord Press will notify you in December and January of voting dates. At any rate, I am certain I will mention it again. Because I KNOW you are going to help me help Dave win! Tell your friends and family and everybody you know to VOTE! I don’t even read fiction and I am going to VOTE! It really is a cool story. I promise. (NOTE: You must vote for 3 submissions or your vote will be disqualified…be random if you don’t want to read them all…is it cheating to say that??)

ok~~~I have all the important things written out. Now if I can just do it right.!…we’re
all set. Oh~~~and “If I don’t forget tomorrow,!”ha! Love ~~~ Mom
I just voted for Altar!!!
It’s lame how you have to vote for three of the stories though….hopefully none of the other ones I chose will win! :)
I want to vote, I really do. Apparently, one needs to be smarter than the website. I’ve gotten all registered, but I can’t find the voting page. Can you give a link to said page?
I know, Sherri-I want to wring someadministrator’s neck for not making this waaaaaay easier. Stand-by for update on making this better. YIKES!
Yay! Dave’s pdf made all the difference! I successfully voted. I’m excited to see the whole book in print!
I did my voting yesterday. At first I too had no idea how to vote. But after a minute looking at all the posts I found it. It wasn’t that hard. It was right above the posts of all the enteries.
