Selecting the Superior Story

I must apologize, but you will not be reading a story cut from one of my dreams today. With working mandatory overtime through the holidays, a new baby born this month, and my chief editor (wife) taking care of a new baby, I have decided that it is time to start wrapping up this little experiment. So what little time I have for the foreseeable future will be focused on editing these entries and getting them ready to publish. 

Now, I’ll be giving my readers the chance to decide what I write. Beginning as soon as you read this, I’ll be accepting votes. You can vote on anyone of my blog entries, specifically the story part that came from a dream. Included with the vote, I am taking votes for a medium. Whichever one wins, I will expand that story into a full blown novel or screenplay. Now I believe that some of them are better suited for this than others, but I’ll let you determine that.

Voting will be done by simply using my contact page (http://www.razaugg.com/contact/) and sending me a message with your votes. I think it would be really cool if you told me why you picked that piece as well. Once I get 1,000 votes, at that point I will set a time limit before I close the polls and begin working on the chosen project. So, if you really want a certain story, get your friends to read it and send in their votes as soon as possible.

What’s that? You don’t think that gives you enough motivation to send in your vote? How about prizes? Everyone who votes will be entered into a pool and five random readers will be selected to receive a signed copy of the piece (in either it’s printed or filmed form) as well as a signed copy of my first novel, Hunt of the Fallen.

In closing, I wish a fantastic end of the year to all my readers. May you have a season of marvelous holidays full of family, laughter, and charity for all. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on my pieces.
