Help Us Win Midweek Open Trackbacks

Posted by Adam Graham on February 20, 2007

Reuters reported in January that a website was going to host “The American Idol of Books.” I might not quite have the belly that Ruben Stannard does (it’d be close though), but by golly a chance to compete for $5,000 and a book contract was too much to pass up.

So, both Andrea and I have spent part of the last month polishing our respective manuscripts and bothe are entered for the grand prize.

I offered Tales of the Dim Knight a story of a man who, after finding an alien symbiot becomes a Super Hero. It’s definitely on the lighter side. Those who have enjoyed, “Your Average Ordinary Alien” will also get a kick out of “Tales of the Dim Knight.”

Andrea has Country at Heart, a young adult romance that deals with some serious issues. Much of the story centers around a campground that’s based on one she and her family spent most Summers at when she was growing up. This story is definitely not Spec. Fic, though Andrea did try to make it. I talked her out of using a frame featuring the main characters telling the story to their cloned grandchildren. I told her this story shouldn’t have any cloning around in it. (Please don’t let that last pun stop you from reading my story or Andrea’s for that matter.)

Your reading and your honest votes are much appreciated. If you want to vote, click here to join

Now, onto the Party. First, the rules:

2) Send me a trackback of any tasteful post you want and as soon as I check my blog, I’ll update this post with your link provided you link back to this thread. If your software won’t allow you to send trackbacks, just use the Wizbang Standalone Pinger.
3) Deadline is Wednesday at 11:00 PM MT. Further trackbacks won’t be posted after that time.

This is a Trackback URL that’s good one time only so that we can seperate humans from spammer bots.

02/21/08: Rights
To a conservative, a right defines something you can do. To a liberal, a right defines something you can expect. The problem is that a liberal right is always purchased by depriving others of conservative rights….

Tuesday’s Victory and Freedom Blog List
There’s much great content by Conservative bloggers, but so little time to read. I’m referencing, today, a few pieces that I feel are especially pertinent to our American freedoms and our victories. If you haven’t gotten to them, I’m providing the li…

Talking Back To Hillary And Skewering Her Rhetoric At The Same Time
This video is outstanding. It skewers Hillary and her insincerity in regards to the war in Iraq. It was created by Bryan Preston over at Hot Air and in case the video isn’t viewable on this blog you can go there to view it as well.

A tip o’ the cap …

Conservatives Need Art
If conservatives ever hope to soundly defeat liberal ideas, they simply cannot remain on their own turf. They must take on liberalism where it is strong.

Note from Andrea: Sounds a lot like the goals of the Lost Genre Guild
