FIRST get on over to Katiebabs' blog -- http://kbgbabbles.blogspot.com/2010/10/it-gets-better-my-500-pledge.html -- and leave a comment NOW! The incredibly caring and generous KB is donating up to $500 to the Trevor Project and the Matthew Shepard Foundation for every comment her post receives. If you're a fan of any form of queer fiction, you must do this. These organizations and others like them provide hope for all GLBT young people struggling to take pride in themselves and gain acceptance within their communities. So go comment!
Now back to the original topic. Check out Elisa Rolle's Rainbow Awards cover competition -- http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/1127553.html. Elisa put the Fugly cover front-and-center in her announcement for round six. I'm so, so happy Christine Griffin is getting this exposure! Her work is phenomenal. (Click on the post title to see her online gallery if you don't believe me -- even though you should believe me, since I have an infallible aesthetic sense. *g*)
I'm hoping the cover goes far, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I have a feeling people prefer "pritty" covers over gritty ones. Still, it's gratifying to see Christine get some recognition.
