First of all, let me thank you all for your patience with this announcement.  I usually post winners on the 2nd of the month, but real life prevented me from doing that this month.

Nonetheless, with FOUR fabulous prizes to give away from our FOUR fabulous April authors, I think it’s worth waiting for. 😉

Once again a huge thanks to our April Author-Palooza participants.  It was so much fun to put together, and it’s nice to be able to award four prizes this time.

Now onto the winners!

The winner of the critique from author Jennifer Ward is… CARRIE FINISON!!

The winner of the critique from author Linda Ravin Lodding is… MELISSA MEAD!!!

The winner of Sandy Asher’s book, WRITING IT RIGHT: How Successful Children’s Authors Perfect and Sell Their Stories is… WILL ORSER!!

The winner of the critique from author Susanna Leonard Hill is… MARY JO GUGLIEMO!!!

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners!!  Please leave me a comment with your email address so I can get that information to our April author contributors.
