We decided to give away the prize chosen in the poll to our top commenter instead. Then we had two commentors who were running neck and neck. So, we have to do two giveaways. And we decided to add a twist. You all picked the knowledge-packed The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide to Staying Out of the Rejection Pile by Noah Lukeman, and we'll give that away along with The Writer's Guide to Crafting Stories for Children by Nancy Lamb.
We're going to ask you to help spread the knowledge. We hope our winners will read the books they receive and do a giveaway on their own blogs to pass them along again. Or we will be happy to have them back here to host the giveaway on our blog. We just want the chain to continue.
The winners and top two commenters are:
Thank you so much, ladies! We will sign these books and get them out to you. Read them, sign them, and pass them on to reward the other writers you know who support each other and work on the craft.Ann Marie Wraight
Thanks to you ALL for being awesome and giving us so much love,
