Leisure Books Fresh Blood Finalists!

Congratulations to the Top 10 finalists in the Leisure Books Fresh Blood competition:

Aaron Dries–Disunity

J.G. Faherty–The Burning Time

Jonathan Janz–The Sorrows

Brian Johnson–Hell to Pay

Lisa A. Koosis–Heart of the City

Mike Lamb–Jack’s Inferno Volume One

Sean Logan–Breed

Sean McLachlan–A Fine Likeness

Felicity Reid–Summer Cottage

Robert Stevens–The Balderdash Lowdown

Over the next few months, these authors will compete in various categories (such as “scariest scene”) and voters will choose their favorites, American Idol-style, with the winner receiving a publishing contract from Leisure Books (in paperback) and Chiaroscuro (in hardcover).

Also in the vein of American Idol, there will be guest judges, including…muahahahahahaha…me. Will I have the cold-hearted brutality of Simon Cowell? The incoherent, mildly creepy fawning of Paula Abdul? The glasses of Randy Jackson?

The contest goes live in mid-January. Find out more right here: http://www.dorchesterpub.com/Dorch/SpecialFeatures.cfm?ID=2757
