Paying Forward Awards

Hey all! Sorry for being so late with this! My life went nuts this past week. But finally, I get to make an announcement about June's Paying Forward Awards.

So here goes:

I've received over 20 nominations, but some were repeats, which means that I ended up having 19 nominees. Because of the wonderful reasons you who nominated gave, I'm adding voucher prizes to the list I already have so that we automatically have 19 winners!

So thanks again to everyone who nominated.

And a very very special thanks to the following amazing people who volunteered prizes:

First Chapter Critique

E-Copy of If the Shoe Fits


First Chapter Critique


Paper Copies of  M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine l'Engle, The Return of the Indian by Lynne Reid Banks and This and That by Emily Carr. (US Residents Only) 

E-Copies of his Moonsongs Trilogy



E-Copy of one of her books or a three chapter critique


A Hawaiian care package. (US Residents only)

First Chapter Critique

Three chapter/30 page critique

An e-copy of The Emotion Thesaurus

And then I'll be adding two one (one has been claimed) $10 and two one $5 Amazon vouchers to be making a total of 19 prizes. 

That's it from me. I'll be contacting the nominees with instructions, but would you all like to know who they are?
