Dear Friends,
Here are the winners of the prizes to celebrate my having 70,001 views.
Thirteen people left comments. (Thank you.)

1.    Karen Tomas

10.    Becky Shillington
11.    Anne Duguid
12.    Carol Federlin Baldwin
13.    Kathleen (Kathy) Burkinshaw

Out of these 13, I asked Random.org Integer Generator to tell me 3 numbers between 1 and 13. It chose number 9, 7, and 2.

Therefore, Karen Cioffi-Ventrice, Ann Eisenstein, and Juliana Jones won a free pitch and 1000 word manuscript critique. Please send them to me at joanyedwards1@gmail.com.

Next, I took out the above winners’ names.

  1. Karen Tomas
  2. Barbara Lunow
  3. Mona861 (Mona Pease)
  4. Susanne Drazic
  5. Linda Martin Andersen
  6. Sarah Maury Swan
  7. Becky Shillington
  8. Anne Duguid
  9. Carol Federlin Baldwin
  10. Kathleen (Kathy) Burkinshaw

Then I asked Random.org Integer Generator to tell me one number between 1 and 10. It chose number 10.

Therefore, Kathleen (Kathy) Burkinshaw won a free copy of Flip Flap Floodle.

Last, I took Kathleen’s name off the list.

  1. Karen Tomas
  2. Barbara Lunow
  3. Mona861
  4. Susanne Drazic
  5. Linda Martin Andersen
  6. Sarah Maury Swan
  7. Becky Shillington
  8. Anne Duguid
  9. Carol Federlin Baldwin

I had nine names left, and asked Random.org Integer Generator to choose a number between 1 and 9. It chose number 7, therefore Becky Shillington won a free copy of Carol Baldwin’s book, Teaching the Story.

Kathleen and Becky, please send me your snail mail address to me at joanyedwards1@gmail.com.

As a special prize, the other 8 people who left comments, but didn’t win one of the other prizes, may send me a “First Page” of a manuscript for critique.

  3. Mona861
  4. Susanne Drazic
  5. Linda Martin Andersen
  6. Sarah Maury Swan

      Thanks for writing. It’s always a pleasure to hear from you. Thanks for your congratulations for the 70,000 views. Linda won a free critique of a first page. It was Becky Shillington who won the copy of “Teaching the Story.” But they are both winners. Hip Hip Hooray for Linda and Becky.
