Winners of First-ever Book Love Event

For the past two weeks, I've been posting writing lessons using the Top Ten Elements of Picture Books. I've shared these online with you. I succeeded in my own personal challenge, what I called my Book Love event. I did it. I can't believe I actually did it! Yea!!! And to celebrate the event, I had a giveaway. Each comment earned readers a chance to win a market guide. The Book Markets for Children's Writers. 2011 and 2012 versions. Published by the Institute of Children's Literature (ICL).

I gave away a 2010 and a 2011 copy back in November 2010 when I gained my 100th follower. And now it's March 2013, and I'm giving away a 2011 copy (again - I had an extra back then), and a 2012 copy. It is my most favorite market guide ever! No magazine markets, but it does have for PB, MG, and YA.

Random number generator, random.org, chose the 1st place winner for the 2012 book to be...

...CATHERINE JOHNSON!!!

...and the 2nd place winner for the 2011 book to be...

...ROSI HOLLINBECK!!!

So, I'll be e-mailing you to get your mailing addresses. Congratulations! And thanks so much for following my blog, reading my posts, and leaving comments! It's been a blast. I think I just might do it again next year! And maybe with more pizzazz. It won't be long before I have another blog love giveaway, when I reach 400 followers. Only 22 more to go.

Come back tomorrow for my interview with debut PB author, Tiffany Strelitz Haber.

Keep on keepin' on...

  3. Rosi has graciously declined her winnings because she already owns the book! So I've drawn another winner and the new winner is Cathy Mealey. Congrats!
