What a wild ride!
There were ups and downs and ins and outs (and I'm just talking about what happened with Sam in the pantry). But back to the poll — were you following? Did you see one title nudge another out of first place, only to be stepped on by another? I wasn't the only one impressed by the quality of the writing of all the stories. I received many behind-the-scenes notes from people who were blown away. Choosing was definitely difficult.
Here is the big reveal. The authors *with* their stories. If you want to say which one you voted for, please go ahead.
We All Have Our Secrets by Monocle
The Bell by Dadgum
Guess by Emma Hillman
Can You Tell? by Angell Brooks
For You by May Deva
My Secret by Sandrine Lopez
Secret Words by Dorla Moorehouse
Number One Fan by Willsin Rowe
Keeping Secrets by t'Sade
Missize by Scarlett Greyson
All in a Day's Work by Madeline Elayne
The Subway by Joss Lockwood
Irresistible by Evie Applegate
The winner of this challenge will receive this awesome pendant from Robbie Jenkins. Do to the multiple ties, this time we're saying goodbye to only one contestant, the fabulous Ms. Evie Applegate. All entrants *do* win a pretty cool effing prize, so Evie, please drop me a note with a snail mail address and I'll get a goodie right out to you!
I'll be writing to the contestants shortly with the next challenge. Thanks to everyone for playing, writing, reading, and simply stopping by! Thanks especially to Violet Blue, who got the word about the contest to her multitude of readers!
