Results Delay

We have a relative staying over for 2 days and its way too hectic for me here to be able to finish grading the last 40% of the works until they leave Thursday morning. I need peace and quiet to analyze while reading. So please allow me until Saturday the 5th to post and pay out morning Eastern time.

Thank you. And I do apologize for the inconvenience. I certainly wasn't expecting this.

BCTS February's "Magic of The Heart" Story Contest is near!

This is an unofficial blog announcing the contest. I'm throwing this up tonight so everyone has a chance to think about it. The basic requirements are that it is a story of Love or Loss for Valentine's Day. I'm giving the option as I'm open to both types. The cash prizes will total between $400- $500. The payout will be on March 3.

I'm Back On!

Okay, to make a long story short, my pc was taken out by a worm that f'ed up the bios controls that then fried my processor and motherboard and took out the hard drive too that had all my contest stuff on it. It was a Russian worm that they dont have a commercial means of removing yet. And it came from an anime site and I had used the vivaldi browser. Because of the way vivaldi worked, the browser let stuff load before it blocked it. Well, live and learn. Im using Firefox plain and simple. No more Chrome.

December 2017 Christmas Dreams Story Contest Results (updated)

     Okay. Here we finally are. At the winner's announcements. First of all, I would like to thank all of our authors whom took the time to actually enter this: that was an act of courage. Secondly, I have had a very hard time judging the entries. I could not use my original setup to grade the entries with and I actually had to enlist help from two friends, one of whom kept laughing at me as I was squirming to decide. It was all in good fun.

Accel World, 2nd Ending, "Unite" by Misawa Sachika

One of my favorite anime songs, sung and instrumental-wise, is the second ending to the anime series "Accel World." I sourced the pieces of this blog from a variety of places to bring it all together onto one page to view it as a whole - "Unite." ~Sephrena

As most of you have probably noticed, I haven't sponsored any contests so far this year because I have had to save up for a medically necessary procedure for which I was unable to get treatment for in Virginia. Now that I have flown halfway around the world and gotten it taken care of, I can now get back to putting together an honest to goodness contest for us in October.
