And the Winner is...

Thank you all for celebrating with me the amazing milestone of 500 followers. I went and found a shiny hat for the draw and dropped the names in of those who entered my giveaway (and got sparkles all over me). The prizes are a $20 Amazon gift card, a first chapter critique, and first 250 words critique. First place gets first choice of prize.

And the winners are...

First place: Alex J Cavanaugh

Second place: Rachna

Third place: Denise (L'Aussie)

Congratulations!!! (extra exclamation marks well earned). Please contact me with your preferences.

note: I will be taking a blogging break in preparation for the April A-Z Challenge. I'll be back on Friday 1st April

extra after-thought note:  After the discussions in my previous post about author photos, I caved and posted a recent pic of me in my "about me" tab... for the curious.
