I came home from school to find my mom in her room, surrounded by piles of jewelry. I saw everything from gaudy costume pieces to the diamond sets my dad had given her over the...

Sophie-Anne Bélisle does not draw if her pencil does not have a hard-on. What tickles her imagination is the moments of ambiguity found in raw ordinary life or in total absurdity, and sometimes in a...

    Just clicked my last vote for Smile.
    It was a weird month voting all the time!
    I’m a little disapointed Sophie-Anne didn’t win, but I’m proud as hell that her story got to the final deathmatch.
    I’d like to congratulate Christina for her victory, it was a fair fight!

      En ce dimanche matin, on prend un café, on like et on vote.
      Intéressant de lire les commentaires des amis(es)

    Je crois que le déménagement de Scranton en Pensylvanie vers la Californie avec toi SAB en avion, Mathieu qui fait le voyage en automobile jusqu’en Californie et le petit Albert âge de 4 mois n’à pas aider dans cette compétition. Bravo à toi et toute ton équipe pour l’énergie que vous y mettez. Cela mérite au moins 2000 votes.Bravo.

    How lucky are these authors to have such a loyal fan base?! Many thanks to all who have been supporting our daughter’s efforts AND much respect to Team Sophie! I think they both know they have some awesome villagers 🙂

    1. PacBen ( Likes: 340 ) says:

      Yes–hats off to all who have given their time to support these awesome writers! Maybe someday we can all say, “We knew them when…”

    2. [email protected] ( Likes: 223 ) says:

      You’re welcome! A bit delayed today by my training this morning, but I must be prepared for the Iron man competition I entered (this Fall). I am sure I will be looking for support there–any takers? Maybe one of the authors would like to pen my journey!

    3. nilabrown ( Likes: 377 ) says:

      Awe Christina, we are SO proud of you. I little sleepy, but proud! And Richard–of course we will be there! Just pass on the details to my husband and we will make it happen! Christina is also a dancer, so she knows the challenge of physicality! She could no doubt cover your story with style and compassion!

    4. skiergirl ( Likes: 127 ) says:

      We are certainly a passionate bunch! So happy to be part of Team Christina. It’s the journey–not the destination! Okay, maybe it’s a little about the destination–Mammoth is beautiful today!

    5. mbrown54 ( Likes: 197 ) says:

      And we are back to the Village People! I am wondering where the authors see themselves going from here. (Besides to bed, “for a long Winter’s nap.”)

    6. Istanley ( Likes: 212 ) says:

      We are the lucky ones to be able to join together and show support in a positive way! I am so proud of my granddaughter! My experience with submitting countless poems and short stories for contests and publications gives me a deep respect for all who wield the pen! Hats off to the authors and their supporters. it’s a long hard road…

    7. brownjaydee ( Likes: 172 ) says:

      I concur! It’s an honor to support the arts and it’s proven to be an exciting adventure too!

    8. Istanley ( Likes: 212 ) says:

      P.S. I see a lot of gold skulls on the board. I challenge Team Christina to give me the gold (for the Grammython)!

    9. Marie ( Likes: 810 ) says:

      Oui effectivement elles sont chanceuse d’avoir des fans assidus pour le vote
      Je suis bien fière de ma fille et de Cristina, belle compétition et bravo aux deux

      Smile is an amazing true story but written so well you think you are reading a graphic fiction novel!! Go SAB

  7. VickiNikolaidis ( Likes: 180 ) says:

    I am definitely gaining weight while eating to stay awake to vote for Smile. These pants were lose at the start of DeathMatch.
    GO SAB! lot’s of time left

    1. VickiNikolaidis ( Likes: 180 ) says:

      Woops, I mean these pants were loose at the start of DeathMatch! I have been wearing them all-along; I did not lose them as stated above. *blush*

    2. Sophie-anneBelisle ( Likes: 1076 ) says:

      Ha ha ha! We’ll both those things can happen… Anything is possible in a Deathmatch!

    1. DeathbyCacti ( Likes: 497 ) says:

      Ils ont dû veiller une bonne partie de la nuit pour voter, nous ça sera toute la journée!

  8. RWD0129 ( Likes: 437 ) says:

    Everybody Loves Raymond is still hilarious at 2:45 AM. Now that’s a great sitcom to watch while you’re voting.

    1. sof ( Likes: 405 ) says:

      I don’t know about the vampire thing but I am watching the Late Late Show with James Corden. He’s a riot.

    2. stbrown ( Likes: 271 ) says:

      SOOO many sleepless nights when your children are little. Just when you think they are over, BAM DeathMatch enters your life LOL

    3. Istanley ( Likes: 212 ) says:

      I am not sure how long I can Hang–this is for the young, or at least the young at heart!

    4. brownjaydee ( Likes: 172 ) says:

      I am not into vampires :/ I wish there was a way for my fingers to vote while my body sleeps!

      As we each pass silver and bronze levels, I can see 13,000 as a possible total. We ARE beasts.

    2. wdmory ( Likes: 426 ) says:

      I remember seeing that post about the 10,000 comments as well and thinking that was insane. I guess the joke’s on me.

  9. RWD0129 ( Likes: 437 ) says:

    Sometimes voting is actually preferable to watching the news. So depressing. I think I need to switch to a comedy.

    1. Kimlara ( Likes: 427 ) says:

      I prefer to get my news “in print”. The sensational coverage on television turns my stomach.

    2. sof ( Likes: 405 ) says:

      I enjoy the luxury of being able to choose my news sources online. I’m the kind of person who takes most things with a grain of salt until I can check out various sources.

    3. ECed ( Likes: 333 ) says:

      Talk about depressing, never did I ever think we would have to start worrying about kids getting shot in school! It boggles the mind.

      Humor is good for the sole 🙂 So many would laugh if they knew this is what we were banning together for right now, but it’s a worthy cause. GO CHRISTINA

    5. bbrown2000 ( Likes: 152 ) says:

      I like to VOTE! I like to LIKE! I like to sleep, er I mean comment tee hee (my attempt at humor).

    6. wdmory ( Likes: 426 ) says:

      As the saying goes, laughter is the best medicine. It has a way of putting things into perspective.

    Une chance qu’on a les Olympiques pour nous accompagner jusqu’à ces heures-là!

      Oui ! Je n’ai pas veillé aussi tard depuis le Bye bye et le réveillon ! Ouf!

  11. sof ( Likes: 405 ) says:

    Exceptionally long day but nothing was going to stop me for voting for Christina. Go big or go home.

    1. nilabrown ( Likes: 377 ) says:

      “Out” is like dinner and a movie 🙂 It used to be dinner and dancing, but that’s turned into “clubbing” and I am WAY too old for that scene 🙂

    2. PacBen ( Likes: 340 ) says:

      I am good with going home, if it means a fire in the fireplace and a good book OR SHORT STORY collection to read.

    3. Mamikimba ( Likes: 409 ) says:

      Tri-tip sounds so good. There is a restaurant by work that makes the best tri-tip. Too bad it’s 45 miles from here. 😔

  12. ECed ( Likes: 333 ) says:

    I’m a better multitasker than I thought. I’m eating dinner, helping with the kids’ homework, and voting. It’s good to know that being a mom helped prep me for deathmatch. Now I get it. LOL!

      Post-it notes are a lifesaver for me too. I have them everywhere do they are within easy reach.

      Juggling seems to be a way of life nowadays! Maybe I should start making some Arrangements…

    Is everyone still having fun? It promises to be a very busy weekend so “believe you can and you’re halfway there”.

    1. SCed ( Likes: 333 ) says:

      I know it’s been quite the experience for me. I can’t say that I’d want to do it again but this was to support a good friend and a wonderful writer.

    2. Carolyn35 ( Likes: 416 ) says:

      I’ve known Christina for quite a while and she’s the kind of person who you would want to have as your wingman. So I most definitely believer in her and her talents.

    3. Mamikimba ( Likes: 409 ) says:

      It’s been an experience. I’ve discovered new artists in the process. I would probably not do it again though. A better two finalist could not have been chosen. Congrats Sophie and Christina.

    4. SPatrick ( Likes: 412 ) says:

      It’s the positive posts of both of the finalist and their fans that kept me in it this long. We get enough negativities in life.

    5. brownjaydee ( Likes: 172 ) says:

      I am having SO much fun, I forgot it was Friday! Well, I work everyday…so it is easy to forget.

  14. Christina Brown ( Likes: 1414 ) says:

    WOW so many comments! You are all amazing thank you!!

    Also Sophie and I just realized that we only live about 30 minutes from each other – so bipartisan death match finalist recovery party should DEFINITELY happen! Mersquad is down 😀

      That’s amazing. Many of us will be there in spirit when it is all said and done. Meanwhile I am enjoying our virtual party tonight. 🎉🍷🍫

      There are LOTS of comments and it only took me 3 weeks to figure out how to use the find in page feature on my mobile device. 😂
