GN Delays, Contest Extension
It's either good news, or bad news, depending on how you look at it.
Due to lengthy computer troubles, the release date of the Evil Plan Graphic Novel is going to have to be pushed back till February. We just haven't been able to get certain things accomplished in time, and we're figuring out what will have to be cut from the book, and what will be kept in. By all accounts, it looks like the redraws of the prologue pages are going to have to stop early, or they may just plain not all end up in the GN.
Of course, this means that the GN contest gets an extension until February as well, so it's good news in the sense that more people will get to enter. To those who've already entered, please accept my sincerest apologies. I feel like crap, making you guys wait even longer for an announcement on that. You got your entries in on time, and that was wonderful of all of you. So again, thank you so very, very much.
And to everyone who was thinking about doing it, but thought they'd run out of time: Hey, look, two more months! I'm not gonna pull any of that annoying "YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE NOW, GET TO IT" crap with you all; nobody gets to harass my readers, not even me (unless it's teasing you via the plot ;) ), but I will attempt to tantalize you with the prizes. To anyone who hasn't seen the rules, or wants a refresher, here's a copypasta of the contest:
The Contest Begins
Is anyone interested in winning a copy of the Evil Plan graphic novel before they go on sale? How about a super-special copy, not only signed by the creators, but annotated and transformed by extra drawings! Here's how things are going to go down...
-The contest starts July 12, and ends on November 30. November 30th is the last day to submit entries; Megan and Alexis will start picking the winners on December 1st.
-Entries must be Evil Plan fanworks, but they aren't limited to any particular kind. So long as they include Evil Plan characters, you're good. It can be fanart, fanfic, fancomics, a youtube video of an interpretive dance based on the telekinesis chip, whatever works with your talents. ^_^
-Entries (or links to entries) will be posted on the "Extras" page of the Evil Plan site, so that everyone can see everybody else's work.
-There isn't a rating limit for the entries, but we won't host anything obscene on the website, and your chances for winning won't be very good.
-There will be two prizes: Both Megan and Alexis will each take a copy of the GN, and write and draw all over their copy, creating a one-of-a-kind annotated version, complete with creator comments, jokes, and general doodles.
-Megan's favorite entry will receive her copy, and Alexis' favorite entry will receive hers. These copies will be sent before the GN goes on sale, and thus the winners will get their special books before anyone else.
As before, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to post them here. If you'd like to submit any entries, please send them to Thaliathetiger@sbcglobal.net , or note them to me on DA, or send me a PM on Smackjeeves. We'd really love to see some more entries, so use whatever talents you prize and please give it a shot!
