Contests and Winner!

Before I reveal the winner of my "Does This Make Me an Author?" celebration, I'm going to pimp three new contests that have come my way that I'm excited about!

First, as you probably know, Shannon Messenger got an agent! Woohoo! To celebrate, she is giving away books signed by her agent-in-laws! Go! Now! Enter! And tell her I sent you!

Second, the uber-fabulous Kim Franklin is hosting a giveaway for The Wolf Within, a book published by Kristi Chestnutt, one of our blogging own! I'd really like to read this book, so don't enter.

Third, Christine Danek is celebrating her 100th Follower! And she's looking for a better term than follower. I like minions or legions, myself. Anyway, to celebrate, she is hosting an awesome giveaway including art, Hooked, and a giftcard! Suh-weet! Go and congratulate her!


Okay, so now for the winner of my contest...

*drumroll*




It's ME!

Haha, just kidding! I wouldn't do that. Or would I? *shifty eyes*

First, I'd like to thank everyone who entered. I LOVED the haiku, and I see that we have a lot of drinkers in the house. I like that. I like that a lot. If you didn't get a chance to read the haiku, you should hop on down there to the comments and do it!

I'm glad I didn't decide to choose my favorite haiku for the winner, because I'd be going broke right now shelling out prizes to everyone!


Enough, already, right?

Alright, so the winner chosen by randomizer.org is.....


Aching Hope from Slumpvis Musings!
Don't worry, Sonshine Music, I saw your comment and will send flowers anyway! Now, AchingHope, you need to tell me what color mug you would like, then email me your mailing address to dream.traveling(at)gmail.com.


BUT WAIT!


Because I love everyone so much, I decided to give away a SECOND PRIZE! *gasp*

Second Prize will be TWO BAGS of CHOCOLATE and a packet of seeds. Cuz they are pretty.

And the winner is....

Sarah from Falen Formulates Fiction!
You also need to email your mailing address (dream.traveling[at]gmail.com)



Thanks to all who entered!

And just an interesting tidbit...I did a few test-runs before today to figure out how randomizer.org worked, and AchingHope won 4 times. Seriously. The universe wanted you to win this contest!


I have big plans for writing today, so this is it from me. Ciao, lovelies!

Saw your fine comment on B. Miller's site. Thought I might let you know about something we are doing (if you haven't heard about it yet).

I’d like to invite you and your readers to join us in a blogging challenge for the month of April. Check it out at Blogging From A to Z. It’s not too late too join up with us and we’d be honored to have you with us.

Kind of spontaneous I know, but sometimes writing is like that.

Hi Summer, I found your blog from your post over at Unedited. It's nice to see another GA writer blogging.

I thought I would stop by, comment and follow your blog. Feel free to do the same for mine.
