Nominations for New Blood Awards 2015

newblood

The group of stalkers lead the writers and readers of the SVM/TV fandom into the now familiar hallway where they are to wait to learn the nomination rules for the New Blood Awards.  As they near the closed doors, they hear arguing.

“But Robin, he didn’t mean to.” the male voice that everyone recongizes as coming from Godric says.  “You’ve had him locked up for 5 days.”  The doors opened and everyone saw Eric sitting in a small wire cage.

“Oh please, Godric, like he couldn’t shred that whole cage if he wanted.  He’s staying in there because he knows he messed up.”   The woman says as she glares at the grinning vampire.  “Now I have an announcement to make, please excuse me.  Girls are you ready?”

“Oh Robin yes, we’re ready and we’re so glad we get to help with these New Blood Awards.” The red head squeals excitedly. Everyone recognizes Jessica Hamby who is walking with the dark headed, Willa Burrell.

“Hey, everyone,” Jessica called out to the members of the crowd.  Many return greetings to the two new vampires and ask to have some chats later.

“Now let’s get on track as I am sure some of you have already scanned down and seen that the nomination form is below.  I’ve thought about how to spark more interest in these awards and here is what I have decided,” The woman says as she pulls out a real notebook and turns to glare at Eric who grins back.

“Alright, first, anyone who has published their first story in the SVM/TB fandom within the last two years is eligible (May 1, 2013 – May 29, 2015)).  Next year this rule will change to only include those who have joined during the year prior to that nomination’s opening, but I’m doing it this way this year so that it will cover from the beginning of this website.   Once again, for this current nomination period, only writers who have published their first story in this fandom during the past two years are eligible.  Everyone got that?  They can have written for other fandoms at any time, but their first story in the SVM/TB fandom must have been posted during these past two years.”

She pauses to see if anyone has any questions, and proceeds when they don’t

“Second, anyone can nominate.  Authors can nominate their own stories if they want, and stalkers and readers can nominate their new favorites.  I repeat: anyone can nominate any qualifying fic.  I will try (TRY) to update the nominee page as I verify each story, and every story that passes verification will be in the final vote.  Now, on the nomination forms, you MUST fill out which category where you want the story placed.  I can’t read minds, so if the category section is not filled in, I will have no choice but to discard that nomination form.  So, be prepared – this could be a long voting form!!”

As the crowd stood still listening attentively, they were shocked to hear the Viking’s voice cut across the room.

“Hello, ladies.  Now, since I do own Robin a new laptop, I will be accepting donations if you are willing to help my cause, but I will also be doing a photo signing session one signed photo your choice for each completed nominations form…” His voice trailed off as Jessica and Willa grabbed Robin to haul her out of the way as they crowd stormed to the computer room to research as many new writers as they could find.

    …Sooo… you should go nominate… I’m going to point out that I do meet all of the requirements…just in case you were curious, no ulterior motive at all.
    *nudge, nudge*

    (Shameless plug) I am one of the lucky stalkers/reader turned Author eligible for these awards. Please go fill out a nomination form. It doesn’t have to be for me. (But it could) 😉
    Please think of Unseenwonder, justanotherEricfan, American Android, kinnik, and so many others!
    Thank you and Happy Reading!

  3. You don’t write why?
    Robin, what you have written for this and the other posts have been pure genius!
    I do have a very small thing: when reblogging the grey/black isn’t so good. I have 3 sites I could reblog to but the background of the site is so close to the black in the site box that I can’t see which one is which :(.
    Any way, awesome job!

    It’s time for the New Blood Awards! These are for us newbie writers that have only been here for the past two years. I’ve only been here a year so you could nominate me if you wanted too. But there are many more newbies to choose from too. So please go nominate and let the new kids know how glad you are to have them around! 🙂

  5. Awesome!
    I guess we can nominate as many times as we like? The more the merrier I say. Now to trawl through my bookmarks and dig out all those great new stories…
    Thank you for running this 😀

    Nominations close on June 12, 2015. If you don’t nominate and your favorite new author doesn’t make the list then don’t complain to anyone but the face in the mirror ….. 🙂

  8. Is it possible for all of the qualifying authors to please comment below with their name and where we can find their work? I am a binge reader and I read soooo much SVM/TB that I have a hard time remembering who goes with what. I remember the stories but I cannot keep who wrote what straight in my brain. Plus, I always LOVE discovering new writers. Since I have to the 12th to nominate, I need to get busy reading and familiarizing myself with the New Blood writers! I’m happier than a fat kid with cake to be able to glutton myself with all of the new stories!!! Thanks to all of the fantastic ladies, especially Robin for getting past the squabbling and for proceeding with the awards!!! You are so awesome!!! Thanks again to you all…. Now, where is the cake? Fat girl is starving over here! 😍☺️🎂😋

    We have so many talented writers that give us so much joy and the ability to recharge with interesting and fun stories to read about our favourite vampires, it’s time to encourage those that are just stepping toward the edge to spread their wings and keep flying high. If you haven’t read any work by new authors, here’s your encouragement to seek out the new blood and drink your fill, then let them know what they’re doing is highly valued and nominate! I’ve sent in my own nominations for some highly talented ladies whose stories made me laugh or made me cry or made me think in a way that I haven’t before. Time to rally and keep the love, support and encouragement going!

    It’s been two years since She Who Shall Not Be Named released the last book in the Sookie Stackhouse Series. Without that moment in time, I would never have found fanfiction. Never woulda started writing the stories that bring me (and hopefully you all) so much joy. Out of the depths of travesty…

    Okay, now I’m just being dramatic. 😉

    Anywho….The nominations open for the New Blood Awards. Anyone who started writing after May 1st, 2013-May 29th, 2015 is eligible.

    Go nominate your favorite writers! You might just make their day!

    Mad Lovely,

    Psst: Have a fantastic day!

    These lovely New Blood Awards need nominations! So get off your butt, put on your fancy-smancy unitard, sit on that nice comfortable Eric-shaped chair and do your duty to all!
    (I might be eligible *wink wink*)
    And *le gasp* I haven’t even nominated myself! That would leave this horrid taste on my tongue…
    *checks to see if everyone is suitably distracted, and drags Godric off for a private ‘conversation’*

  18. Hi there, been reading lots of FF and lots of Authors – not sure though how to tell who is a writer within the last 2 years? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you – new to nominating. 🙂

  20. I’m not so up on new authors but I won’t make the mistake of not nominating again – The last awards highlighted the problems caused by readers not nominating even if they do so without reading every story available. So this time I’ve nominated those that qualify that I already know of. Before the voting starts I will do my best to read through the nominees!

  21. I was randomly googling myself today and came across this. I think to myself, “Sweet, the nominees are up for the New Blood Awards! All those new stories listed in one place for me to read…” I scan the names and… Wait… I’ve been nominated?

    And then I squealed.

    Thanks for all your hard work on the awards! It’s fan-tastic.
