12x12 banner largeAs I mentioned, this month’s featured author post was an especially personal one, and I am simultaneously thrilled and envious of the 12 x 12 participant who was lucky enough to win a handwritten note of encouragement from the Eileen Spinelli every month in 2013. AND, I want this month’s winner to sprinkle me with whatever fairy dust she’s steeped in because she has been a lucky lady in these contests. The winner is…

Julie Rowan-Zoch!!!

THANK YOU to everyone, featured authors, fellow writers, editors, friends – everyone – who made this first year of 12 x 12 so successful. Although I will miss the synchronicity of 12 x 12 x 12, I have no doubt great things are in store for all of us in 2013. For those who will not be able to join in 2013, please know you’ll be missed, that we wish you well on your writing journey, and we hope you will keep in touch so we can applaud your successes, which are sure to come.

If you do want to join, click this link for all the information you need. There will be more featured author posts, more prizes, more opportunities, and for Little GOLDen book members, even the chance to submit to agents and editors and bypass the slush pile. The Membership Forum is already on fire, as members exchange information, give feedback on manuscripts, share upcoming events and opportunities. I shouldn’t be surprised anymore by the generosity of children’s writers, but somehow it keeps getting better and better! We hope to welcome you in 12 x 12 soon!

Happy New Year!
