It’s a new dawn…..

Howdy folks of Rizzles land!

Firstly, happy new year to you all! I hope you’ve had a wonderful 2015 so far.

Well, unfortunately, RL continues to beat me about with a broom but I’ve decided not to let that get in the way of our wonderful fic writers getting some much deserved recognition and possibly some adoration from tens of people by presenting to them another Rizzles Fan Award. So, I’ve been poking about here with the feather duster and found a fiver down the back of the couch, so that’s good…. but we’re also about ready to crack on with some fic awards…

I’m sticking out some feelers to see if there is any interest in running another round of awards? I know a lot has happened in the fandom and some disillusionment so, if you’re interested in more awards…. HOLLA!!!!

Also, hit me up on twitter, @RizzlesFanfic to let me know

Hope to see you all soon.

Poof… there I went.

The more astute among you will notice there’s not been an awful lot happening here. Due to some RL tragedies, I have been unable to have much access to the internet.. or electricity, hence the utter lack of any rounds of awards this year. While RL continues to beat me with a broom, I am hoping that I will be able to return to the awards at Christmas time.

As soon as I am able, I will consider doing another round of awards, should there be enough interest.

Take care all.

2013 in review – THANK YOU!!!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 70,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

Merry Christmas

I’d like to take a moment now to wish you all a very happy and healthy christmas.

I know a lot of us, myself included, have struggled this year. A lot of disasters have befallen many, both emotional, and physical and while I hear many are on the way up again, I hope you can all find some time this holiday season to both find some cheer and maybe deliver a little to those others in the fandom and your personal lives.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas; may it be filled with love, laughter and joy, family and friends. If you are travelling, please be safe and leave plenty of time for your trip so you get there in one happy piece. Please don’t drink and drive, it’s not worth the risk to yourself or others.

Thank you all to those who have offered support, both for the awards and my own personal disasters. It is hugely appreciated.

Yeah, so that really. Have a fantastic time!

Voting is now open

You may now start voting. Please remember the following:

  • You may NOT vote for your own stories but may ask you family and friends to do so.
  • You may submit a maximum of three forms. On each form you can vote in every category should you wish. Use your votes wisely.
  • If you are unsure, please drop me an email or a tweet to clear things up.
  • If you try and cheat – firstly, what’s wrong with you, that’s not nice! Secondly, ALL of your votes will be classed null and void so not only are you doing yourself out of votes, also anyone else you might chose to vote for too.

Authors, there is still plenty of time to add your thanks to the page if you want to. Send an email to me with your message and pen name so that my poor smooshy brain doesn’t mix any of you up.

Delays… Oopsies.

Hey all!

Well, the more observant among you will have noticed that the voting form isn’t up yet, despite the dates saying it would be. Let me tell you why.
The rules say an author can have a maximum of three stories in a maximum of three categories. Sometimes, some authors get nominated over this allowed limit during the course of the nominations period. When this happens and after nominations close, I then contact the authors and ask them to chose which of their stories they’d like to keep as I think this is the fairest way to do it.  Obviously, due to those pesky real life commitments that people have, sometimes it can take a little while for the authors to both get back to me and make a decision. This is the cause of the delay at the moment. I am waiting for a couple of authors to get back to me about which of their stories they’d like to keep. As soon as I get a reply, I will get the voting form up. You will still have the alloted 14 days to vote in, it’ll just be a little later than we anticipated.

If you have been nominated, please check your ff.net account to see if you are one of the authors I’m waiting on.

Also, if you are a nominated author and you wish to thank those that have nominated you, please send an email to rizzlesfanficawards@gmail.com with your message and most importantly, your penname.

 

Thank you all for your patience.
