Winner, Finalist, Voting, and Survey

5 03 2009

Whew! I cannot believe that it’s the end of the contest already. Thank you for sending in such great entries. Leigh and I have thoroughly enjoyed hosting the contest – and reading your submissions. And we hope that you’ve enjoyed the contest, too — and found our comments, as well as those of others, helpful.

But, the contest is not over yet! Click here to vote for your favorite finalist – voting ends on March 11th. And don’t forget to stop by the Finalist pages to read what our agent and editor judges have to say. Theresa Stevens of Red Sage Publishing has already commented on the entries!

Also, Leigh and I will still be around. So, if you still have comments on the Finalists or Mini-Critique winners, please leave us a note.

And, here’s the link to vote for the winning Finalist: Please pass it along to everyone you know and tell them to vote!

So, without further delay, here’s this week’s winners…

Lastly, we’d love to get your feedback on the contest. Before the contest ends, please take a moment to complete our survey.

It’s a pity you only run this once a year …and particularly I learn of it by accident a day after closing. to wait until 2010 is too long a time between drinks for me and I will be moving on elsewhere. Pity as it would have been fun to enter. Six monthly runs would have been better with a grand final at the end of the year. Is your choice and your way. goodluck

So sorry you missed the contest this year, Melissa! If you send an email the the contest mailbox (see rules page) with a request to be added to our monthly newsletter mailing list, you’ll be sure to get the notification if you miss the announcement elsewhere.

We’d love to offer the contest monthly but, unfortunately, it would be too time intensive for us — and the agents/editors we ask to judge. You would not believe the amount of time it takes to run the contest 1/year. But, we love doing it!!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to “see” you next year!
