And the Winners are...
Finally it's time to announce my contest winners! Being a writer, I'd love to draw out the suspense, but I'm also a softie, so I'm just going to get right to it.
The $30 Barnes & Noble gift card goes to Crystal Cook at write because you must. Crystal's favorite literary character is Jace from the Mortal Instruments. She says: "he's just so angsty and tortured and tough, but really sweet and kind too." Sounds like my kind of guy!
The $20 Barnes & Noble gift card goes to Velva at Tomatoes on the Vine. Velva posts all sorts of delicious recipes on her food blog. I hope you'll go check it out, and make sure you have your grocery list handy because you're going to want to try some of those recipes! Here's what Velva had to say about her favorite literary character: "My favorite book is the Color of Water by James McBride. A black man's tribute to his white mother Ruth McBride. She is the daughter of an orthodox Jewish father and she falls in love with a black man in the early 40's. It is a riveting story. It will make you laugh and cry. It's soulful and really reflects the human spirit. Her son the author does an absolutely amazing job telling his mother's story." Thanks for the awesome review, Velva!
The $10 Borders gift card goes to Theresa Milstein at Substitute Teacher's Saga. Theresa's favorite character is Harry Potter "because I have seven books to enjoy him, he's brave, and willing to sacrifice himself for others and the magic is pretty cool." I agree, Theresa - there's a lot to love about Harry. Theresa's second choice, Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird, is another personal favorite of mine.
The $10 bonus Borders gift card goes to KarenG at Coming Down the Mountain. Karen's favorite character is Huck Finn "because he's written so real we all think he is." Hmm...makes me think I should go back and reread some Mark Twain!
Whew - that was fun! Winners, please verify that I've got your favorite book store correct and email me your addresses at susanfieldswriter(at)gmail(dot)com so I can get those gift cards in the mail.
Thanks for participating everyone!
