Once more into the breach, Dear Friends!

Folks, if you've been following blogpocalypse recently, then you know I've been bugging the crap out of you to vote for me at Book Spot Central's book vs. book smackdown tournament, a competition organized like March Madness basketball. At first it was sort of a lark, but then I was in the sweet sixteen, then the elite eight, and then -- much to my sincere surprise -- the final four.

Now I'm in the finals, and, I'll be honest, it's still all for fun ... but I really really want to win. I admit it.

This is going to be a tough one, people. I'm definitely the underdog. I'm up against a fantasy novel called The Way of the Shadow by Brent Weeks. Right now the vote count is as tight as hell, but Weeks has a lot of loyal readers and once they really wake up and mobilize, the Gischler is in some deep doo-doo.

You guys have taken me me this far. It's all you. And I'm grateful as hell. I'm going to be borrowing against good deeds until the year 2024 to pay back the karma debt.

But I need you just one more time. One more vote (and they also ask for a sentence or two to explain why) and I can stop hounding you about this. For those who've vote already ... thanks. Go get your friends and neighbors to vote now. For the rest of you, baby, this is it. The final push. Please go here and vote. You do have to register, but I understand it just takes a minute.

Thanks and double thanks.

Just finished 'Go-go' so I didn't vote before, but I went and registered and voted last night. I'll tell others too.

REALLY enjoyed the book, by the way. Laughed out loud.

That makes you officially awesome. Thanks!

Don't the rest of you want to be awesome like David???


Sandra Ruttan said...

Ah, but aren't you supposed to be lobbying us harder, reminding us a vote for Gischler is a vote for sexism?

I guess, using reverse psychology, since I am awesome, I have to vote for you. Done.

Victor Gischler said...

You were already awesome, Sandra. Mow you are DOUBLE awesome. Awesome is , like, your super power now.


Randy Johnson said...

Already done!

Red said...

Done and did.

I wouldn't worry too much about the karma thing. You could qualify for a low-interest karma loan. Are you too big to fail? Karma bailout!

Go-Go Girls was absolutely hilarious. I really enjoyed it. Keep up the good work.
