The 2010 CHASE THE DREAM contest has officially ended – but there’s still a great reason to come back next week. Alex Logan, Assistant Editor at Grand Central Publishing will be leaving her comments for all the finalists on 3/25. So make sure you check them out!

Speaking of the finalists, the votes have been tallied and the winners have been identified for this year’s contest. For the first time ever, we had a tie for second place. Here they are:

First PlaceWeek 6 Finalist Hooves of Thunder, Hearts of Silk by Vicki Bendau (and don’t miss Vicki’s interview here)

Second PlaceWeek 2 Finalist Still Sucking in San Francisco by Jessica McBrayer

Second PlaceWeek 4 Finalist Dark Shadows by Kylie Griffin

Third Place – Week 7 Finalist Inner Eye by Gwen Mitchell

Thank you to everyone who entered, commented, voted, and stopped by. Thank you to our wonderful agent/editor judges who took time out of their hectic schedules to provide helpful feedback on all the finalist entries — and congratulations to Kelli Martin of Kimani Press who couldn’t participate in the contest as she’s out on maternity leave.  We couldn’t have had yet another successful contest without all of you!

Until next year … success and happiness to all!

Rachelle & Leigh, thank you so much for the opportunities you’ve provided by running this contest. I have learned a lot over the last few weeks and enjoyed reading the entries and comments made by readers and editors/agents alike across the 8 weeks.
This is one contest I’ll be recommending to as many friends as I can via word of mouth. Thank you again! 🙂

Goodness – somehow, we missed the comment notification on this post and I’m just now seeing your comments.

Gwen and Kylie, thanks so much for the kind words about the contest – and for spreading the word!

All the best to you both!
