The Holiday Contest Winners!!!

Good Extremely Late Afternoon Practically Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a Merry one filled with happiness yesterday.

I realize I’m way behind schedule today… lots of family visiting and lots going on… but having promised, I didn’t want to let you down completely – better late than never, right? 🙂

I know you’ve all been waiting with barely controlled (or possibly uncontrolled) antsiness to find out who won the amazing Holiday Contest!

So without further ado, here they are, the winners of the Pretty Much World Famous 2nd Annual Holiday Contest!!!

First Place: Laura Renauld for Humphrey The Humbug

Second Place: Marci Henry for Jingle Sheep

Third Place: Cheryl Secomb for Dashing Through The Snow

Fourth Place: Penny Klostermann for Christmas Bash-A-Roo

Fifth Place: Joanna Marple  for The Tree

All five winners will receive a $20 Amazon Gift Certificate as soon as I have all the email addresses (Marci and Cheryl, I may need yours).  And I will sort out which winner gets which PB critique ASAP and update this post, so check back!

UPDATE: The critiques have been sorted and will be assigned as follows:

Laura – Corey Rosen Schwartz
Marci – Amy Dixon
Cheryl – Sarah Frances Hardy
Penny – Tiffany Haber
Joanna – Alison Hertz

Congratulations to all our winners for fantastic stories amid fierce competition, and congratulations to all who entered!  Everyone who took the time to exercise their creativity and actually write and post an entry deserves to feel proud of their efforts.  And many thanks to everyone  – writers and readers – for making the Holiday Contest so much fun for the second year in a row!

And now, because I have grossly overestimated how much blogging time I’d have during the holidays, I must announce that I will not be doing Perfect Picture Book Friday this week (although I will post the link list for anyone who wants to) and I will probably not post Monday the 31st either.  And if I fail to visit your blogs as much as usual, it’s not because I don’t love you 🙂  It’s important to enjoy time with the family when you can 🙂

Enjoy your holidays and Happy New Year to everyone, with all best wishes for happiness, health, and publication in 2013!!!
