So, I learned my lesson a while ago and no longer do contests which require me to personally pick a winner. It's too hard to choose. I feel guilty and want to let everyone win. But even using to pick my winners, knowing I could blame it on a computer generated program, I still wished I could let you all win. This is impossible. There's no way I can do 40 critiques. I only have time for 2 critiques. But after the first number came up and it was:

C.A. Marshall (Congratulations!! I'll email you) I noticed she had requested a book in the comments section. I thought, I scheduled myself time for 2 critiques, so I should definitely pick 2 more winners.

The second random number generated by (remember, not me, a computer program) was:

Larissa (Yay!!!) After all my reasoning about being able to do 2 critiques, I noticed Larissa hadn't specified what she wanted. So it's possible Larissa also wants a book. Which is totally fine. I will email her and find out. :)

The last random number drawn, and I'd like to think it was because she somehow sent threatening letters to or maybe she also promised the website something she has no intention of actually delivering, was:

Sophia Chang (I expect my army of Chinese children very soon). From now on I will try my own over-the-top promises when entering contests because obviously the positive vibes those promises sent into the Internets somehow came back to reward you. (I'll email you)

Congratulations to the winners!! Happy New Year, everyone!


  1. Sorry I missed the contest. Congratulations to the winners.

  2. OMG!!!! YAYYYYYY!!!! I totally still want A MILLION SUNS! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! I'm replying to your email now! EEEEEEEE!!

  3. Awww, bummer. I KNEW I should have sent an army of Chinese children over to threaten into selecting my number, but I just let the time slip away, and now it's too late. Let this be a lesson to us all about the evils of procrastination.

    Congrats to the winners!

  4. Congratulations winners!

    And if you find that none of them want a critique, I would totally be ok with you doing one for me, you know, since you scheduled time for them and all! he he he...

    Happy New Year!

  5. lolol now you just have to pull a Brangelina to claim all of them. I'm dancing for joy with my nonexistent kids.
