Rose and Bay

So! Over here are the Rose and Bay Awards, which are in their first year, recognizing excellence in crowdfunded fiction.

Go, look, read some amazing work--there are several categories, and some stellar art in all of them.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland is nominated for Best Fiction.

And I'm here to ask you...not to vote for it.

Fairyland has gotten more attention than any crowdfunded project in recent memory. It's getting a print edition, a sequel, articles on so many sites. It has a strong fandom and wonderful fanart, and all sorts of other exciting things, some of which I can't even tell you about yet. It will have many more opportunities to shine than most online fiction, when it hits bookstores. I'm so grateful for everything that has happened. I could not ask for more. And though I have a platform on this blog that can do wonders, I don't want always to be asking for them for myself.

There are crowdfunded projects struggling for readers and for donations, who don't get that kind of attention. I would like to ask, if you might have voted for Fairyland, to instead read one of the other nominees. More than one, if you have the time, but all I'm asking for is one. Vote for them, if you enjoy it. But the important part is for you to read or see the very deserving projects there.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Fairyland--let's spread it around a bit.
