Got Tod? (update 1.1)

Posted by
|

Some of you may remember last summer’s online YA Crush Tournament, in which Tod made it to the semi-final round–quite an accomplishment considering all the massive bestsellers he was up against. Well, it’s that time again, and this time Tod has the misfortune of going up against Magnus, from Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series.

This is a tough tournament. Clare is a massive bestseller and filming on The Mortal Instruments movie is scheduled to start in a couple of months. So…Tod’s the underdog. Still, he seems to be rallying quite a bit of support from his awesome fans. And you guys are awesome!

If you’d like to vote for him, click here. I believe you can vote once per device. (And if you figure out a way to cheat that system, please DON’T. We play fair.)

Not sure who Tod is or why you might like him? You can read some of his best lines here and here. (Warning: may contain spoilers for the Soul Screamers series.)

If you’d like to show your support for Tod, you can get blog buttons or an avatar here. (Designed by the awesome Fiktshun, provided by the awesome Smiling Ina, Tod’s advocate in the tournament.)

Fiktshun is also holding a giveaway for voters here.

And, because I also greatly appreciate support from readers…if/when Tod makes it to 1000 votes (he’s at 700+ right now), I will post a juicy snippet from the WITH ALL MY SOUL manuscript.

EDIT: You guys did it! Tod hit the 1000 vote milestone! Head over to my FB page to vote on what kind of snippet you’d like from WAMS!

If/when he gets to 1,500, I’ll give away a Tod quote shirt. You have your new challenge… Go!

If you voted for him, leave me a comment here (on the honor system). If things keep going well, I will draw winners from the comments on this post for some book/swag giveaways as the voting continues.

So…that’s it! Check back for updates!

    I voted for Tod, IMO he would had a 50/50 against Sam Roth from the wolves of mercy falls series (just say) I have read TMI and like Magnus but I did not vote him because Tod is wwwaaay cooler. Kaylee, you better treat that boy of yours he did his best. :)

  9. Alaiel Kreuz

    July 11, 2012

    I voted, and tweeted, and prayed (ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit xD) but I really hope Tod can win… He deserves it so much!!!

  10. Rachel C

    July 11, 2012

    Voted as soon as I could. I was one of those who found your books through the tournament last year. Burned through you series in just a few days and then I had to wait.
    Thanks for writing such a great series :)

  11. Sarah

    July 11, 2012

  12. Samantha Yeates

    July 11, 2012

    Who doesn’t love Tod? It was definitely a tough choice between him and Magnus…but Tod won in the end. I voted for Tod! :D

  13. jovialvampyre

    July 11, 2012

    I voted for him at 3:20 this morning :). It didn’t look good then but I sure hope the “wagons circle” around him!

  14. Kalynn

    July 11, 2012

    I voted. I didn’t feel the Tod love until I read Reaper, but I don’t know how you could read that one and not feel it. Here’s hoping for a rally!

  15. Sam S.

    July 11, 2012

    I voted for Tod! I absolutely love him!! I’m not that keen on Magnus anyway, pfft, who wants a warlock when you can have the grim reaper? I hope Tod wins, I got a few of my friends to vote as well. TOD FOR THE WIN!

  16. Annabelle H

    July 11, 2012

  17. Carmen B.

    July 11, 2012

    I voted once from my phone just after I woke up, and then once more from the computer. I know he’d need a miracle to win against Magnus (who is also an awesome character), but he deserves to at least not be left miles behind :)
    The tourney last year was what made me realize I wanted to know who he was and needed to start reading the books ^^

  18. Abirami27

    July 11, 2012

    yay!!! I voted for Tod… :) Since you want Tod’s fan’s to be fair, I promise to be… :) Hoping My Dear Tod wins…. :) Go Tod, Go!!!!!!! :)

  19. Farrah

    July 11, 2012

    I voted for him as soon as I got on my computer. Tod is just amazing! I swear, I fall in love with him a little for every day :) I’m getting everyone that I can to vote for him; he deserves to win-if only just because of those killer dimples ;)

  20. Crystal Fulcher

    Because of Rachel last year, I can’t wait to meet Tod Hudson.

    P.S: Nearly 1000 votes in less than 12 hours that is quite the accomplishment for an “underdog” I don’t think he is one ;)

  32. Caitlin

    July 11, 2012

    Man, it is a tough break to be against any Cassie Clare character, especially in a first round. I voted for Tod on my phone and again now on the computer… it’s tough to come from behind, but hey, Tod has already gained 5% since last time I looked, so that’s pretty good. =D

  124. Kristina O

    July 12, 2012

    It was a tough decision to make since I’m a fan of both book series, but I’ve always been more of a Tod fan than a Magnus fan. So Tod definitely got my vote.

  125. Kristin Straumann

    July 12, 2012

  126. Franzy Pickerell

    July 12, 2012

    Hi! I voted for Tod! I even got my friends to vote for too. I made my friend put the tod button as his profile picture for the time being since I couldn’t do it myself, as my profile pic now is for another contest and can’t be taken down for the duration of the contest. As hard as it was to go for Tod or Magnus, my heart stayed with Tod all the way. Even though Tod didn’t win, I’m glad for the thank you message, it made me feel loads better (: Team Tod forever and I’ll see you in the books again very soon, my reaper (: <3
