YA writer Carrie Bastyr is the bomb. Even though I think she and I are in a huge battle over Adam Levine (yum). If you like giveaways, you need to be following Carrie's blog. She's a mega giveaway girl. And on top of that she's giving a copy of All These Lives by Sarah Wylie to...Susanne Drazic. Thank you, Carrie!
YA writer Melissa Brady King is the next talented mama I'm introducing. Wow, can that girl write some good historical romance. I am really not a historical reader, but I had the privilege of CP'ing her fabulous book The Bootlegger's Daughter and now I'm converted. She's very talented. And very generous. She is giving away a copy of The Duff by Kody Keplinger to...Kathy Phillips. Congrats, Kathy!
Bookalicio.us Middle Grade reviewer Robyn Lucas is my favorite cheerleader. I love this woman's enthusiasm. Her creative energy is infectious. In my next life I'm totally gonna figure out how to be that for people. Robyn is such a great critique partner which is why Daisy Carter is so lucky to be the winner of a pitch or query critique from Robyn. Celebration time, Daisy!
Agented MG writer Kathrine Ernst has my heart. She is such a kindred spirit. I had the amazing opportunity to beta read the book that earned her an agent and I'm telling you, she's TALENTED. And funny. And so smart. There are so many aspects of Katie's writing approach and outlook on life that make me stand up and say YES! She possesses sarcastic humor yet a very positive persona. Love her.
Hildred Billings Coleen Patrick is the lucky winner of a query critique from Katherine. Ultra lucky, I'm telling you. (Hildred gave up her prize since she doesn't have a critique to query).
The final two prizes come from little old me. First, the winner of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is Jennifer Eaton.
And the grand prize winner of a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble is....Jennifer Pitts.
Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to all who donated prizes. And thank you to all who read and follow and support me. It's been a crazy, happy, fun year and I'm glad to have shared it with you all!
