No More Dangling in Suspense: Contest Winners Announced!


Okay, huge congrats to our winners of the BIG RENO GIVEAWAY!

--Julie Lessman, we’ll be seeing you on Saturday at 5 pm for drinks!! Congrats! We’ll be ready to hear all about your works, and to discuss where you’re going with your career. Please email me to determine where we shall meet! CONGRATS, again! (I feel like I’m giving away a game show prize!)

--Tera Lyn Childs and Jill Lawrence, you’ve won the one chapter critiquing prize! I’m excited to take a look at your submission package—include your synopsis and your current query letter if you have one—for the material, and email to me by attachment in Word when you’re ready. VERY IMPORTANT: mark the subject line “Blog Submission.” That will avoid a word like “winner” which might shoot you into the spam filter abyss somewhere along the way.

Everyone, stay tuned. Tomorrow I’ll be announcing another exciting contest for end of summer. But come this fall, we’re going to be doing something extra special for all our blog readers. More to come!

Best of luck to all of you, and hoist one for me. I'll be languishing in the California Wine Country 'cause I just can't get away at all. Sigh.

Have fun. I'll be thinking of y'all.

I found your blog today, Deidra. I hope you check out mine as well. It's a group blog written by 10 authors who write for youth in the CBA world. It is at http://412live.blogspot.com/.

BTW, we miss you over at TWV.

Congrats to the winners! I didn't even enter the contest (I'll hopefully be in Atlanta next year) but I'm jumping up and down for the three of you!

It is a "game show" feeling, like "The Knight is Right!"

Does anyone know Julie Lesserman? So far, she hasn't claimed the grand prize. If we don't hear from her by noon on Tuesday, I'll have to draw again since she didn't leave her contact email, etc. :) I'm sure some of you will be rooting for this particular course of events! LOL! Deidre

Whoops--make that Julie Lessman. To quote Ferris Bueller....Anyone? :)

Gosh, sympathies to Julie if she doesn't contact you. But I will DEFINITELY check back Tuesday evening to see if you've redrawn the Reno appointment!!

Have fun everybody!

Congrats to the winners! Hopefully Julie will contact you soon. See you in Reno!

Wow! I'm really glad I checked in on the blog before heading to Reno!

Thank you Deidre for hosting the contest (and for drawing my number out of the hat)! Thanks everyone for the congratulations. Especially Julie -- that was very honorable of you to decline.

Now I just have to decide which first chapter to send ... probably not from my chick lit that you already have the partial on :)

Thanks again and see you in Reno!
