Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest SPRING 2013 WINNER

It's time to announce the winner for the SPRING 2013 Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest! A huge congratulations goes out to...

...Lauri Meyers with her 800-word manuscript, Mapmaker!

Carter, a "famous" mapmaker, uses a map to go everywhere, even to the kitchen for breakfast. He is sought after for the flawless maps he creates, but when he makes a mistake drawing a treasure map, Carter has to face his fear of getting lost to rescue a pirate.

Congratulations, Lauri! Since this is your second time winning, you will no longer be eligible to enter in future contests. That's a big bummer because I really enjoy reading your work. You can expect your critique within five business days.

Just a reminder: the SUMMER 2013 is currently open for submissions. Get those submissions sent in! Just e-mail your ms to me according to the manuscript guidelines. The deadline is September 30.

    1. Thank you Christie for selecting Mapmaker! My little manuscript has been sitting to the side for awhile as I was at a crossroads on which editing path to take. I can't wait to see your suggestions.
