Okay, it's been a crazy week, with 100+ entries for my Big Fat Contest! If I could, I'd have you ALL win, but alas, I think Marietta would drop me as a client! *sniff*
All winners were chosen at random, via the Randomizer website! So NO nepotism!
So, without further ado, our winners are...rock star drum roll please:
A 30 page critique, a query critique or 30 minute phone call from fabtastic Agent Marietta Zacker:
1. The charming, Harley May
2. The mysterious, Matthew Rush
3. The exquisite, Faith E. Hough
Winners please consider what works best for you and what stage of your writing you're in. Do you really need help with your query or are you more concerned with your writing or do you really want to get on the phone with a real live agent and get some insider info about the business and maybe some awesome writing tips? I'm excited for all of you and Marietta is too! You will love, love, love her! She is a wiz at this business, witty and just as nice as can be!
A $25.00 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble or the ABA, whichever works best for you:
1. The mystifying, Ebyss
2. The darling, Margo Dill
A signed ARC of NIGHTSHADE CITY (my favorite prize):
1. The inspiring Christine Forsenca
Congrats to all the winners! Please email me off my profile with your contact info for Marietta or your address for the gift card or ARC of Nightshade City!
Marietta will contact the three critique winners and you can go from there!
This was a lot of fun and giving out prizes is a wonderful feeling, but most importantly, it's about us all getting to know each other a little better and helping each other out a little bit. I've met some amazing writers and made some great friends, just by following blogs and doing all that social networking stuff (whatever that means)! Ha, ha! Speaking of which, I try to follow everyone, so please shoot me your link if for some reason I'm NOT following you or ping me on FB and/or Twitter! We all lead busy lives, most of us with full-time jobs or families to look after or both! It's nice to have these "places" where you can stop by and give yourself a little break from the world of reality! Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without you guys!
In short, please keep blogging, writing and just being yourselves!
