Process ...

Drawing Runner-up ...

Kristie, you have won a $15 Barnes and Noble gift card and an illustration, drawn by the wonderfully talented Elizabeth Mueller! All you have to do is provide her with a summary of your WIP and she'll illustrate a mock cover of it for you! Seeing as you're published, and you may not want something like this right now, maybe you can negotiate with Elizabeth to write up a review of your book on her blog. I'll get you in touch with her today.

Drawing winner ...

 drum roll ..................................

 Leigh, you've won an interview with Paula B. on The Writing Show. Paula will also plug your blog or website on the home page. She will also publish a short piece of your writing on the website, with a short biography and any links or other information you wish to include accompanying it. You've won a $100 dollar Amazon gift card and a copyedit/proofread of your full manuscript whenever it’s ready from moi :o)

Woohoo! Congrats Guys! You'll get an email from me giving you further instructions :o)

And a BIG thank you to all who donated and supported The Writing Show!!!

    I can't believe you cut those all up. Dramatic, yeah, sure. but didn't your hand get crampy? I think I would've just used a random number generator and counted down somehow. LOL...my way is kinda anticlimactic though.

  4. I can't believe you cut all of those up yourself! What a great contest and congrats to the winners!

  5. I can't believe you cut all of those up yourself! What a great contest and congrats to the winners!

  9. omg--LOL! did everybody drop out after all my silly smack talk yesterday? I was KIDding! ;p I guess now I have to do something about that boring bio...

    **THANKS, Jessica!** This is super awesome. The edit alone is enough for me--I'm always trolling for an extra pair of eyes~ :o) <3 Thx!

  15. Look at you, all organized! Nice! I'm jealous of your contest organizing skills (and your number of entrants!).

  16. Awesome! Congrats to all winners! I've only known Leigh a little while, but she rocks. I'll have to go look up Kristie.

    And Jessica -- sorry I didn't return from my self-imposed internet hiatus (a.k.a. my honeymoon) in time to enter/donate before the deadline. I'll try to schedule any future weddings around such things, to ensure I can benefit such great causes as The Writing Show. :)

  20. Wow, I am super jealous, so jealous it hurts. But congratulations to the winners! :D
