Chess Wins!

So thanks to all of you, Chess won the first round of the Suvudu Cage Match! Look at that, 68% of the votes! YAY!

And epp! Because this means she goes into Round 2, where she will be “fighting” Brandon Sanderson’s Kelsier. Who can manipulate iron, which as you all know is rather a large part of our Chessie’s magical arsenal. Which means, yeah, I’ve got some serious work to do here. I *do* have an ace up my sleeve, of course, but the question is do I want to play it now, or do I want to hold on to it in case she advances further?

I believe Round 2 will be posted on Monday.

I also believe–well, no, I know for a fact–that I promised to share a new excerpt for every round Chess wins. So you tell me, which book do you want an excerpt from for Round 1, SACRIFICIAL MAGIC or CHASING MAGIC? Let me know, and I’ll post it on Monday. (And again, if she wins Round 2 I’ll ask again and post another one.)

You guys are so awesome! I hope you’re having fun with this, too. Writing Chess battling the sorts of characters/creatures she’s not usually up against is a hoot, it really is, so I hope you enjoyed her battle against Babcock and will enjoy her battle against Kelsier. Which is gonna be HARD, yo.

Anyway.

Also either later today or over the weekend or Monday, I will post SACRIFICIAL MAGIC’s playlist!

I’d do a poll here but apparently don’t have that capability. So you’ll just have to “vote” in comments: SACRIFICIAL MAGIC or CHASING MAGIC for the excerpt?

    one more for Chasing Magic, please!

    Oooh, Kelsier will be hard to beat. He’s tricksy. And cute. Not that that matters, or will affect the outcome of the match. Just sayin’. 😉

    I’ll go against the grain and vote for SACRIFICIAL MAGIC, since us Brits have to wait until May for it [I could order the US version, but I want may copy to match the other books. It’s a thing I have].

    I am kind of nervous about this match (I knew she would take that silly vamp) … but I plan to blitz everyone I know and make them vote! :-)

    And my vote is for SM, just because I want to read everything, even excerpts, in order. Not that I wouldn’t read a little from CM, but my ocd makes me vote for SM. :-)

    YAY! I vote for Chasing Magic for an excerpt. It will be quite an interesting fight between her and Kelsier.

    This cage match idea between characters is a very entertaining concept. I’m going to have my pre-ordered copy of Sacrificial Magic very soon… I hope. :)
