Local writer needs your votes

My name is David M. Simon, and I'm a Westlake resident. I make my living as an ad agency creative director. I also write and illustrate stories for children, with some success (published in Highlights Magazine, illustrated a couple of picture books, etc.). I recently completed my first novel, a funny 30,000 word fantasy adventure for middle grade readers call "Trapped In Lunch Lady Land". I entered it in CBAY Books' (a small, well-regarded children's publisher) writing contest, and it turns out I'm a finalist.

Now I need online votes. I not only need to win my category, but I need to do it with at least 500 votes. Publication is on the line. The link to vote is: http://cbaybooks.com/info/?p=274.

Voting closes May 30. As a local writer, I thought I'd take a chance and reach out to my fellow West Shore citizens for support. Thanks for your time!
