At last, the winners of the cover contest! The judges panel was very divided on this, and each entry had a cheerleader. But in the end, (as promised in the original post) we settled on a top five and let the random number generator do the rest.
And the winners are....
Winner of a set of signed Lois Lowry books, a journal and a City of a Thousand Dolls ARC.
First Runner Up:
Winner of a signed set of Alaine Fergeson's Forenic mysteries, a journal and a City of a Thousand Dolls ARC.
Second Runner Up:
Winner of a signed copy of Matthew Kirby's Edger-Award winning book Icefall and a City of a Thousand Dolls ARC.
Winners of a fifteen-dollar gift card to an online bookseller.
And here's where I hit a snag. I couldn't just not recognize the other entries not when everyone did such a fantastic job. So if you entered the contest and did not win, I will send you a five-dollar gift card to the online bookseller of your choice.
So to sum up:
If you all will email me your addresses/gift card preferences, I'll start sending out prizes. And stay tuned. August is the *eep* start of the six-month countdown to City of a Thousand Dolls releasing, and I have another great contest in store.
Thank you so much for entering, everyone!
