The Rainbow Awards: First Week Results

Here is a little summary at the end of the first week of the Rainbow Awards. Remember, these are only partial results, Phase 1 and Phase 2, during which you can vote all the books and as many books as you want, will last for all October, so you have still time. This is more a reminder, and the evidence of which Categories survived at this moment: categories with few or none votes were compacted in one category and some were deleted (at least for now, but I don't believe we will have so many new title submissions to make them survive).

This phase is a popularity contest, so I'm not so surprise that there are some dark horses I wouldn't expcted to see, but please remember, if you want for the Awards to have credibility, don't cheat ;-) Till now you were good, I noticed only some strange votes appear and only some strange accounts, but remember, I'm checking and I can be very strict in making you oblige to the few rules.

So, enjoy the first week results, and tomorrow I will post the Jury: the Jury will have the hard task to confirm or complete these results and in the end, to award the all togheter winner.

It's not yet finished, and then you will have another chance to "save" someone, isn't it? ;-) Elisa

Thanks for organizing all this, Elisa.

Elisa, thanks so much for including my poetry chapbook THE UNDERWATER HOSPITAL (Zeitgeist Press) in the Rainbow Awards poll! I can't wait to read some of the other books on your list. Readers who want a copy of THE UNDERWATER HOSPITAL can buy a copy for $5 at http://www.zeitgeist-press.com. I've posted a link to your Live Journal blog on my Facebook page. I'm sure many of my friends will be interested in the books listed in the Rainbow Awards.
