Oh, Okay. I will let you go.
Whew! Thanks. That gag was really starting to hurt!
Hey! I’m the one who’s been tied to a chair for three days. What’s your problem?
They like you.
They like you. Did you see? All those people came to beg and plead… and now I can’t explode anything.
Awe, it’s okay Little Blue Lady.
No it’s not! No one likes me!
Umm, well, maybe if you didn’t always try to blow everything up…
No one likes me.
Okay, well, whatever… so I guess I need to send someone a copy of the make Believe Anthology, huh? So, who was it? Who pleaded the best to set me free?
They all did.
All? Umm, I don’t think that will make my publisher very happy. You need to pick just one.
That’s my problem. I liked a lot of them. I liked them enough to let you go.
Awe! Super thanks to everyone who helped set me free!
Okay, let’s take a look at this. Who was the most creative?
Oh look! Vanessa Chapman wrote a poem. That’s creative.
Yeah, it reminded me of a song. Shall I hum it?
Ummm… No. Hmmm. You talked to Wendy Reid for a while.
AAAA! Wendy Reid scared me!
Ha! Really? You should read her book if you want to see scary. [Jennifer Shivers]
I think she likes you
Ummm… okay, so… What’s this with Heylookawriterfellow?
Mike Allegra? He’s an abomination! He lured me to his website, and made me feel welcome… but it was all a distraction while he tried to set you free! And I was going to buy his book! He’s a children’s author, you know… and he has this great post on… Wait! No! Ban Mike Allegra for tricking me! Heylookawriterfellow is not my friend!
Well, I kind of liked Mike’s distraction… it stopped you from setting off firecrackers under my chair for a while.
And what’s with Widdershins?!
Oh! Widdershins is a fellow alien. I must make a note to friend Widdershins on Facebook.
Ha! What else do we have here?
Richard Leonard tried to convince me that there was something wrong with Mars. Pfft. I checked. Sandy and red as usual. It’s fine.
And Jmmcdowell threatened to dump nuclear waste on Mars… Like it wouldn’t explode on the way… silly archaeologist.
Oh! I have an idea! To be totally fair, l let’s take our top picks of the most creative and let people vote, okay?
Oh! Then can we vote on how I take over the world?
Umm, yeah, I guess, but for now let’s see who wins the contest, okay?
So, here we go! The finalists are below. Please vote for your favorite. The highest number of votes gets a copy of the Make Believe Anthology and can do their very own review of my debut story “Last Winter Red”. So let’s get voting for your favorite!
And then will you finally give me an interview?
Ugh… Here we go again.
Please vote for your favorite in the form below! You can see their full entry in the comments from October 3rd’s post
Vanessa Chapman – Poem “Ode to the Little Blue Lady”
Wendy Reid – Scared the pants off the Little Blue Lady (Maybe I should rephrase that)
Heylookawriterfellow (Mike Allegra) – Kept Blue Lady occupied on his own site to give Jennifer time to escape.
Widdershins – Fellow alien, keeps humans as pets
Richard Leonard – Planet Mars Is Dead. There’s nothing to go back to.
JMMcdowell – Dump Earth’s garbage, politicians, has-been entertainers on Mars. Ticking time bomb.
(By the way, convincing all your followers to vote for you is completely and utterly not fair … but I have no possible way of proving you did it, so… umm… never mind… I shouldn’t have even said anything.)
Voting closes tonight (Saturday, October 6th around 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time)
Good luck to the finalists, and thanks again everyone for convincing the Little Blue Lady to set me free!
