Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Jessica May Lin said...

Hey Authoress (or anyone who has submitted already),

How do we make our payment? Will an email be sent to us? My submission went through but I haven't paid yet.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I got in, but I was never asked for a payment. I thought that was part of the process.

Roxanne said...

Woo Hoo! I was refreshing like mad. I have the same question as Jessica. :)

Pk Hrezo said...

My submission form didn't ask for payment. I got an email saying I was accepted, but there was no payment link or button. Should I donate from your donate button??

Anonymous said...

My entry was accepted (#25) but at no point was I asked to make a donation. Is there a problem in the system?

Robin Weeks said...

I got the confirmation email, but not the link to Paypal. Should I just use the Donate button now? Pretty sure I owe you $8.

Rena said...

My guess is, you're about to get a bazillion of these, but like Jessica, no place to submit my payment came up, just an entry number.

Melinda Williams said...

Me too!!

Stefanie Gaither said...

Ditto what Jessica asked. I got an email with a post number but no link to pay. I'm assuming that's coming?

katherineamabel said...

Gah! My logline didn't paste and in my panic to submit I didn't notice!!!

Also how come I've got an email saying I was accepted but I haven't been charged yet?

Should I try again and have my first entry deleted?

samsevern said...

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY! MUCH LITERARY LOVE TO YOU ALL!! ♥♥♥

Roxanne said...

I just checked again and the contest is closed. Is that cause I already sent mine or did it go that fast? Less than 5 minutes!

Jordan Calher said...

I clicked to submit but it says "contest closed"? Did it crash?

AnnieBB said...

Ditto for me on the payment. My entry was accepted, but no prompt for payment. Should we just go through the "donate" button and put our entry # on there?

Anonymous said...

Is it already closed?

draeves said...

I'm one of those who was accepted but not asked for payment. I made a separate donation under "Donate." Is that going to be okay?

Anne Tibbets said...

Closed in 4 minutes? Argh!!!

katherineamabel said...

And my html didn't work to italicize two lines. Stupid anxiety attack. :( Can I fix it???

Mandy P. said...

Closed in 4 minutes? How sad... Dang

Authoress said...

I messed up again. I didn't have payments set up. The contest is temporarily closed.

I entered the contest only a minute after it opened and it said it was already closed. I thought we were supposed to have time to read over our entries.

Deana said...

Same here with getting the number but not paying moola.

what should we do if we have a number?

T.L Tyson said...

OH! I see.

Lori Saltis said...

I just submitted my entry and received a confirmation that it was successful. I was under the impression I was supposed to pay $8. I thought there would be a PayPal button. However, there was no payment method that I could see. I would be glad to make a payment or submit a donation. My entry ID is 21. Thank you. I appreciate the opportunity to take part in this contest.

Elissa said...

According to Twitter, our lovely host forgot to set up the payments. Please stand by!

Marie Rearden said...

Oops. I made a payment through the donation button for entry #39. Hope that still counts!? *falls on knees to beg* Thanks! Marie

ilima said...

I went and paid $8 on the donate button and referenced the contest and my submission.

Jessica May Lin said...

Are we going to have to resubmit, or is paying through the donation button okay?

bdell said...

I entered at 9:04! Had to format. Didn't get in!

Whaaaaa!

Thank goodness I can try again Thursday!

Lori M. Lee said...

You said entries are not valid, but what about those of us who paid via the donate button? I'm so confused lol

macaronipants said...

I also paid through the donate button. My entry was #76.

matril said...

I, too, got accepted without payment and would like to know whether I should pay through the donation button or wait for further instructions. Thanks for your awesome dedication, which I know can't be easy to maintain when everything gets crazy like this!

Jordan Calher said...

I have to leave for work! aargh :(:(:(:(:(:(

RaeFo123 said...

matril- Don't pay via donate. Authoress explained on twitter that she can't track contest donations that way. She's working to correct the issue.
