Oh, how I wish we could have picked more than five. Do you know how unbelievably difficult it was to choose finalists from such an amazing line-up of entries for our Blog Hop Contest?

Of course you don’t. Unless you took the time to read all of the entries, in which case…of course you do!

So many fantabulous writers, so few prizes…..

But we DO have five amazing finalists — at last!!! Here is the full roster, with their magnificent prizes:

1st PLACE:  Ruth Long ~ “Between the Lines” ~ 50 pg edit from Lillie McFerrin

2nd PLACE:  Donna McNicol ~ “Forest Flowers” ~ 25 pg edit from Angie Richmond

3rd PLACE: Jo Ann Teal ~ “Out of the Dark” ~ 15 pg edit from ME!!!!!!!!

4th PLACE:  Brewed Bohemian ~ “A Beautiful Place to Die” ~ 10 pg edit from Daniel Swensen

5th PLACE:  Gwen Tolios ~ “Extinguishing Souls” ~ a copy of Stephen King’s On Writing

Aren’t you splendiferously proud of all these writers? You should be! Drop by their blogs and tell them so! 
Follow them on Twitter! And then join their blogs. And read their contest entries. 
And encourage them to write MORE.

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Congratulations to all our winners!
Thanks also to Lillie, Angie and Daniel for hosting the blog hop and making all this possible.
