Hey Shannon! So glad I'm a fourth place winner on your blog!! Never done a guest blog before, and the fact I get to do it on an agented writer's website just makes me blush and gush and all sorts of emotional nonsense. SO, let me ruminate (and bask) for a while, and then I'll DM you and give you topic and date. Sound good? Let me know. THANKS!


Awesome contest, btw! Congrats to all winners! :-)

Hello there Shannon! I received your message on twitter, and I am feeling the same way as Adam! *bites fingernails*

I would love to post for you though (what an honor!), so in a few days I'll get back to you once my nerves have calmed a bit and I've thought of a potential topic! =)

Thanks for the neat opportunity, and congrats to all of the winners! *throws confetti*

Wow, I won third place? Yay! You can contact me at harwood.j09@gmail.com with whatever questions you needed to ask.

Oh, and this was a great contest.

I won? I never win! And I got second place, which was what I was hoping for. I've somehow managed to miss Armstrong so far…

Good contest, for sure! I'd enter again if the prizes were cool (and I'm weird about what's cool sometimes). I hope you do one again, though!

My email's anassa(dot)rhenisch(at)gmail(dot)com.

Wow!!! I never win anything, Shannon and all your prizes are awesome, so I would've been happy with _any_ of 'em--but first? WHOOOHOOOO! I love Starbucks and have always wanted to pick up a Laurell Hamilton.

It was a great, fun contest and I'm not just saying that because I won a great treat. :) I'm really looking forward to the guest bloggers' posts too.

Cheers,
Ev

Woo Ev!

Congrats to all the winners! I'm excited to have the opportunity to do a guest blog post. That will be a lot of fun. It's a lucky week for the Sedores. Daryl publishes his debut novel and I win a contest. :)

I think it was a good contest, Shannon, and I would enter again. Although I may be biased because of winning. ;-)
