Come April 1st... It's YOUR Turn To Vote For The

Small Press Idol!

And That's NO April Fool's Day Joke!

Erik W Hendrix...  Has been sending out several notices that the judges for the 'Small Press Idol', (SPI), are no longer the Only Ones that Can Vote on entries that were submitted to the contest.  Well at least starting April 1st that is!

Click Here to see our current listed Comics, Magazines, Games and more!  Erik wrote me:  "I will end up sending a couple more of these before voting starts on April 1st, but just a reminder. If you have not already done so, please go to dimestoreproductions.com and sign up. The link is near the top left corner and it's a really quick and easy process. A link to the process I wrote on "how to sign up" is below.

Note: If you signed up but didn't get a confirmation email, send an email to ian@dimestoreproductions.com from the account you used to sign up and ask him to activate you.

Note 2: Starting on April 1st, you get ONE VOTE PER DAY, so please go onto the site daily and vote for your favorite (hopefully it's Faction).

Process for voting: http://www.geocities.com/thelastbard/faction/SPI-JoinForums.doc

Link directly to sign up for DimeStore:
http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/signup.php ."  

My thanks to Erik for re-submitting this reminder to so many!  FYI, Erik also has an entry titled 'Faction', which is one of the 27 entries that are moving on to Round 2 of SPI... so give his work a look at also if you are so inclined!

Click Here to see our current listed Comics, Magazines, Games and more! Ian Shires , (pictured to the left), listed on the main web site all 27 of the projects that made it into Round 2.   By making it that far all 27 are set to have their projects printed in 'Mysterious Visions' at the very least. 

Ian also says "But more over, they are still in contention for the $700 cash prize, 4-issue publishing commitment grand prize. So take a moment this week to check them all out, make your own notes about them, and get ready for Round 2 where we turn up the heat big time, and YOUR VOTES COUNT!"

For those of you that have missed my previous blog posts on SPI, you may be thinking "So what exactly is Small Press Idol?".  I'll let their web site promo say it for them:

"Small Press Idol is the greatest amateur's contest in comics, mixing a bit of American Idol with a bit of The Apprentice, and a bunch of our own special social experiment elements. This contest is not for everyone...but it will be fun, and, for those that participate, it will challenge you to be the best you can be. If you survive round 1, your work WILL BE PUBLISHED! This year: We have national store distribution! It's our biggest year ever!"

So starting April 1st, 2009, YOU can start voting for your faves on Small Press Idol... so take the time now to register and take part!
