Contest Winners

And The Winners Are…

Thank you so much to the many wonderful readers who commented this month! You have been a true God-send. Most of you aren’t aware, but I struggle with severe winter depression from October through March and February is always my worst month. This contest and forcing myself to interact with people when I instinctively want to squirrel myself away has been helpful to my sanity. 🙂

The ultra-cool prizes include:
A. First Fifty Pages Critique
B. Query Letter or Synopsis Critique
C. The wooden box to the right, carved by East Indian artists.
D. A Barnes & Noble Notepad with this beautiful Chinese-style illustration and magnetic closure. (See the picture at the top of this post for the cover and inside illustrations.)
E. Wonton Bath Fizzers. Fill your bathrub with warm water and dissolve the wonton – err, fizzer in it. Kinda cool, huh? (For all those interested, they contain Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Pentasodium Triphosphate, Cellulose Gum, Talc, Sodium Sulfate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Parfume, FD&C Blue #1 Cl42090.)

F. A copy of Malinda Lo’s “Ash” OR Diane Lee Wilson’s “To Ride the God’s Own Stallion” were added last week. You saw that, right? 😀

That makes a grand total of eight prizes, just so you don’t have to count.

Now, onto our winners! This was a pretty straight-forward contest in that the winners are those who followed, commented and posted about the contest. Without further delay, broo-ha-ha, obfuscation… Oh, all right. LOL The winners are:

My winners are 1. Eve (aka, Lilacfield). Eve, you get a fifty-page critique OR your first pick of any of the above prizes!
Second place goes to Lynda Young and third to Susan B. Kason and can choose between the two remaining critiques (see below) OR one of the other gifts. Janet Johnson won fourth prize and Rachna Chambria won fifth. Margo Berendson won sixth place, TK Richardson and Lisa Gibson won seventh and eighth places. Wait a minute. There are seven prizes, you say? Yup. Since I have such wonderful commenters who gave me a tie in points, I’m adding in one more prize – a synopsis critique (instead of having it be a query or synopsis critique).

So, wonderful ladies of the blogosphere, would you please be so kind as to contact me at victoria[_]dixon[@] so I can get your prizes to you? (I apologize for the brackets! Stupid spambots.)
