I know. You can barely contain your excitement for today's post. I apologize if I'm responsible for keeping you up all night, tossing and turning, checking the clock every thirty seconds in hopes that it was morning so you could finally tune in and see who won the contest and what the surprise is :)
But you can stop champing at the bit. The big moment has arrived.... Who knew Thursday could be this thrilling?
First, I am pleased to announce the winner of Monday's Picture Book Game Contest!
(Drum roll please... Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!)
And the winner is.... Jenny!
Congratulations, Jenny, come on down!
Let's show Jenny her prize. In addition to the SLHill title of her choice, personally signed in any way she'd like, Jenny wins the admiration of her puzzle-solving peers, and the opportunity to have her name up in pink on this blog! YAY, JENNY!!!
(Jenny, please use the "email me" button in the right margin of the blog to let me know which book you'd like, how you want it signed, and what your mailing address is. Well done!)
I think our other finalists deserve a moment of recognition for their stellar attempts, don't you? So we will celebrate them in runner-up orange: Yay, Megan, Teri, and Diane! Excellent work!
To everyone else, good try and don't worry... there will be other opportunities to win soon. You know perfectly well that I can't resist making up contests :)
Now, for the surprise. Really, could this day get any better?
The book trailer for April Fool, Phyllis! is at last up and running on YouTube! Here's the link:
April Fool, Phyllis! - Children's Picture Book Trailer
Please turn the sound up so you can hear the catchy tune that goes with it (although I should warn you - if you're like me, it's liable to get stuck in your head for weeks :))
Please feel free to click "like" and share the link with every single person you know - I want to go viral :) Wouldn't that be awesome? Probably there should be a book trailer award for homemade imovie trailers - like an Academy Award - only instead of the Oscar it could be the Phyllis... :)
Enjoy, everyone! And don't forget to join me here at 10:30 for The Writer's Club where this morning's topic will be... anything you feel like talking about!
