First, a HUGE thank you to those who participated in the Smitten! Blogfest. I knew it would probably have a light turn out because it was real stories verse our usually fictional stories. But I’m really happy with the entries. The Blogfest is still going on through today so if you’d like to jump in you’re totally welcome to! I’ve read all the entries so far and they are pretty cool. It takes a lot of moxie to post about your real life and I applaud you all.
Next, the contest.
The winner of Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel Harlequin Valentine is……….
Congratulations Dawn. I’ll wrap up the book and ship it off this week. I hope you like it, Harlequin Valentine is one of my favorite of his one shot graphic novels. The story is creepy and awesome and kind of sweet.
And last, but certainly not least, all the cards have been shipped to their owners. I LOVED doing this and I think I want to do something similar again in the future and definitely again next Valentine’s Day. Because I didn’t have a lot of submissions (6) I was able to get pretty detailed with the cards and even customize the message to the recipients. That being said, they were pretty time consuming and I don’t think I could do this level of detailed work for a bigger group. I’ll have to figure out something different. I think it would be cool to send Halloween cards. We’ll see.
So for those of you who wanted one, thank you very much! And you should get them in the mail Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday depending on where you live and when I sent it out. Some of them took longer to finish than I’d anticipated. But I’m pretty proud of them so I hope you enjoy them too.
I’ll post pictures of all the cards next week after I know everyone had received theirs.
