Sorry this took so long, but I'm finally catching up. [laugh/flail] The winners of my chunk of the Pay It Forward contest are:
Shauna and Ello!
Each of you get to pick one of the following prizes:
1. Support New Writers -- two books by new writers. That is, writers whose first commercially published book came out one year or less ago, as of 15 March 2008. Mass market paperbacks or equivalent only, please.
2. Support Electronic Publishing -- a $15 gift certificate to Fictionwise, one of the major sellers of electronic books.
3. Try Something New -- two books from two writers whose work you've never read before. Try to make at least one of them in a genre you've never read before. You're not paying, so experiment! Mass market paperbacks or equivalent only, please.
It's not a first-come, first-served; if you both pick the same one, that's cool.
Then, you each need to run this contest in your own blog. You don't have to do it exactly the same way I did -- you can make people do something different, or just enter by commenting if you want.
Thanks to everyone who entered. :D
