Auntie B’s Book Club Contest
I want to thank all of you for participating in such a fun blogfest contest.The girls had a lot of fun and we all learned a lot. The girls enjoyed reading your comments and it rewarded them for their time. Each girl gave each semi-finalist’s entry a rating from 1 to 5 stars (we used gold sticky stars – lots of fun). They weren’t allowed to judge their own picks. Afterward we added up the stars to determine the winners. My youngest niece was on the sidelines in case we needed a tie breaker, which we didn’t need.
Thanks to all the participants and congratulations to the semi-finalists, you made it very difficult for the girls to pick a winner.
So here are the winners…
1st place and the winner of a ten page and synopsis critique goes to . . .
Wishwryter (aka Margie Senechal)
The two runners up and winners of either a ten page critique or a synopsis critique (their choice) goes to . . .

Thank you to Cassandra Marshall, agent-intern, freelance editor, and writer extraordinaire for the wonderful prizes and please check out her website for all your editing needs. Her prices are so reasonable and you won’t be disappointed. She’s amazing!
Final words from the judges . . .
I had such a great time, and enjoyed reading your entries. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity, and I hope to actually hold your books in my hand one day.
This was such an awesome experience. I will always remember Auntie B’s Book Club and all the fun we’ve had. I’m so happy I got a chance to read your writing. You all are talented. And I want to thank Auntie B for not correcting our work like she just did our goodbyes (tough, I know). Adios!
Auntie B’s note: I didn’t have time to edit their post comments because of my crazy schedule or I would have. So many mistakes *shakes head in shame*. I think you all need a grammar refresher course.
This was a great way to end our summer. Thank you all for letting me read and critique your work. I loved ALL of them. I hope you all get published soon!
You all are sick writers. I think my group was the hardest to choose the top two from (no matter what Drama Girl says). No seriously, I read a few of the others, and it was tough competition. It’s more rewarding to win when the competition is tough. Good luck to all of you with your writing!
And, a special thank you to Game Girl (my fifteen-year-old niece) for waiting in the wings just in case we needed a final decision.
Well, thanks all for a fun time. How was your experience with this contest? Did you like hearing from the teens? Was there anything special you took away from it?
I’m working on more contest for the upcoming months and maybe a workshop so check back soon for details. Until next time, that’s it.
