Winners of the Bagful of Giveaways

Dear Readers,

Giveaway day is both happy and sad. I love giving presents and I felt a lot like a jolly old elf when I licked my pencil and sat down to tabulate the comments and wishes. If only I had a magical bag that never ran out of gifts . . . but after seeing all the wonderful responses, I decided on two things. First, I will offer free critiques several times in the coming year, and second, right now until the end of the year, I'm going to offer a 50% discount on a critique for the first 12 pages of a middle grade novel. That means that instead of $3 per page, the fee will $1.50 per page!!!

MORE GOOD NEWS!!!!!  I decided to giveaway two autographed copies of my sister's book, Finding Redemption in Everyday Life, and TWO free picture book critiques.
