Literacy week, month, whatever — Book 5

I don’t follow a lot of what goes on, so when I got tagged for a Literacy Month challenge, I thought nothing of it, rolled up my make-believe sleeves, and responded to the challenge. Except, Literacy Month is November.

. . . you can’t trust anyone these days . . .

So I’m supposed to “. . . post seven books I love; one book per day, no exceptions, no reviews – just covers . . .” which I’m doing on Facebook.

I wrote posts about the first three books because they were in Italian and wanted to expand/explain my choice. This book is in English and the reason I’m writing a post is . . . because I want to.

But, the first three books are all in Italian. So, I figure I should expand a bit on them here, on the blog.

The Alphabet Challenge: “C” Stories Voting

Assuming everyone has read the stories, this is the place where you can vote for your favorite of the “C” Stories.

For readers who stumbled here or who need a refresher, the stories can be found by clicking on their respective names.

Here are the links to the stories:

Candidate

Crash

Combat

All readers have to do is read each story and choose the one they liked best. Voting is open until the publication of the next group of stories (the “D” stories) at which time I’ll tally the votes and declare a winner.

As a reminder, to have your vote count, click on the circle next to the story you’re voting for, and then click on “Vote”. If you don’t click on “Vote”, your choice won’t be recorded.

If you want to make sure your vote is registered, click “View Results” before voting, then, go back to the poll and vote, and then click “View Results” again to confirm the counters have changed.

If your vote didn’t register, please let me know.

The system has a check for duplicate votes, so if you try voting again within a week of when you last voted, the vote won’t register.

~ 0 ~ 0 ~ 0

If you would like to leave a comment for the writers — either here or with the individual stories posts — please do so. I will forward each comment/question to the appropriate writer.

The writers will appreciate hearing from you and will likely respond.

The next stories — the “D” Stories — should be up at the end of February.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

The Alphabet Challenge: “C” Story No. 1 of 3 — “Candidate”

This is the third round of The Alphabet Challenge mentioned in THIS post. As a refresher, the Broxson twins, Gary and Perry, and I will each write one story for each letter of the alphabet. Meaning, a story whose title begins with the given letter. For these submissions, it’s the letter “C”.

Readers have until the publication of the next story (about two weeks) to vote for their favorite story in each round. Points will be assigned to each writer based on the voting rank.

For each letter, the story with the most votes gets three points. Second place gets two points, third place gets one point. In the case of a tie, the points for the tied rankings are added and then split equally among the writers who tied. At the end of the year, we tally up and crown the winner with the most points.

Long or short, each story will appear on its own post and the trio will be followed by a fourth post where readers can vote.

Here we go. Presented anonymously, the first of three stories with titles beginning with the letter “C” as submitted by its author.
