IGNORE THIS POST. IT’S OLD AND WAS MADE PUBLIC IN THE INTERESTS OF SCIENCE.
So Curran lost the Alpha Showdown and looking at my email box, you guys are upset and angry. I’ve got bitterness, and accusations of cheating, and detailed explanations of how said cheating had occurred.
Guys, it’s an online poll. It’s okay.
This wasn’t meant to be an upsetting thing, it was just meant to be a fun thing. It’s probably my fault, since I encouraged the voting. I don’t know Darynda Jones, but from our limited interactions online, she sounds like a very nice person and I’m sure her fans are very dedicated. It sucks that we didn’t win, but there is no reason to be sore losers about it. We are cooler than that. Let’s let it go.
You kicked ass, you’re still the best fans any author – or alpha – could wish for, and of course, you will still get your top choice of the bribe. Gordon’s been working on the POV, and hopefully it will be posted in the next couple of days.
