It seems I owe you an apology for the “fire drill” yesterday. I thought (just like everyone else in this contest) that Monday, Oct 9th was the end of this contest. SURPRISE! That is not the case!
Inkshares seemed to have had a glitch with the web page that they were unaware of:
“The end date was always the end of the day on the 16th, but a glitch in the system kept making it the 10th. We did not know this was going on until very recently, or we absolutely would have sent an update. We will address this to everyone soon.” -Elena Stofle
So while that was vastly confusing, the silver lining here is we have one more week! (TUES OCT 17TH)
I appreciate everyone who has already pre-ordered! Thank you so much for all your help getting Eudaimonia into AND keeping it in the top 3.
Currently, there are 26 pre-orders separating 3rd and 4th place. Which is the difference of having a book published or not.
You know what I’m going to ask since this isn’t our first rodeo. :) But, this time I took a page from Mr. Paul Gulyas, who happens to be in first place, and created a little copy and paste snippet that might be helpful. (When you ask your pals, pals of pals, and long lost 2nd cousins to help THIS sister out.)
My friend, Meghan, is trying to get her book published. Would you help her by pre-ordering? Or maybe giving her book, Eudaimonia, a shout out on Facebook, Twitter or email?https://www.inkshares.com/books/eudaimonia-48b598
You would be surprised the power of one pre-order!
Again, I am very sorry for the confusion.
As you were, keep on trucking, we are nearly there because Oct 17th is when this contest is actually over!
I found out late last night that there is a new deadline for the Launch Pad contest. It is being extended to next Monday 10/17. I’m not sure what the reason is for the change but never fear, Franny is currently investigating...
So, the competition continues! The good news is that Flight of Angels is still in second place and now there is time to pre-order a copy if you haven’t had a chance to do it yet. Please help spread the word! Every pre-order helps cement Flight of Angels position in the top 3. Here is the link to the book page: https://www.inkshares.com/books/flight-of-angels

Thank you all again for your incredible support!
Hey, everyone. So strangely, and without any announcement from Inkshares, the contest which was supposed to officially end last night has been extended a week... Yeah, I’m confused, too. This is good news for basically everyone in the competition but the guy in first place, haha. And guess who’s in first place? Thanks to all of you wonderful people, that would be me.
It’s a good problem to have and I am so grateful. But I know my competitors probably feel new life has breathed into them, and are really going to put the push on in this final week. I don’t put it past any of these smart, creative people I am competing with to take 1st Place from me.
And so I urge you one last time to PLEASE share my pre-order page with friends, family and strangers, and ask THEM to share. There’s not much time left and your friend of a friend of a friend could be the pre-order that cements my win! Thank you all SO MUCH again. Here’s something to cut and paste again:
"Please help Paul win this manuscript competition and achieve his lifelong dream of being a published author! Only $10, and every order gets him closer to the win! YOUR order can be the one to make his dream a reality. And if you can’t order, please share this link: https://www.inkshares.com/books/the-shift-the-stoneford-chronicles-424394"
Thank you all again. Hopefully my next update will be good news and not another inexplicable extension! Have a great week, all!
