Mama's Day and... a WINNER... finally ;)
First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, stepmoms, grandmas, godmothers, aunts and all women who put a child's best interest before their own. Being a mom & stepmom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but also the most rewarding aspect of my life. I'm grateful for every second that my girls are with me. They have taught me so much and I would be lost without them. I love you Peanut & Max!!!
Positive female role models make a HUGE difference in a child's life. You all rock and I wish that I had books to give away to all of you for everything that you do on a daily basis. That leads me to the second order of business for the day. *cringes* I know that I was supposed to post the winner of the signed copy of "Wings" on Friday. I'm sorry, but this weekend has been crazy!
So, without further ado... the winner of the signed copy of Aprilynne Pike's "Wings" is Christine Fonseca.
Christine's dream team of YA writer Roald Dahl and Horror writer Stephen King got me all sorts of excited as I pondered what deranged and creepy tale two of my all-time favorite authors would've weaved together.
Hmmm perhaps a BFG that dies and winds up buried in a pet cemetery only to come back to life, wrecking havoc on a small town.
Or a group of child-hating witches who meet in a haunted hotel for a conference where the agenda is killing off every child in the world. One little boy tries to stop the witches but his hands are tied when his grandma goes all Jack Torrance and tries to kill everyone...
The possiblities are endless. There would've been beautiful offspring out of that literary marriage for sure. :)
Well anyway, awesome job Christine! Email your address to me at kristenyard(at)gmail(dot)com and I will get your prize off to you. :)
To everyone else, thanks for playing! I loved reading all of your awesome author pairings! Have a Happy Mother's Day!
