First Place……………..Kathy Bremmer (Katt)…Critique by CW and a M & M tote
He’s in the business of helping people disappear and she’s making a lifework out of finding them. He plans to shut her down using trickery and seduction but she twists him up like a pretzel and he can’t derail her from her mission. Their battle of wills is put on hold when another player rudely steps between them and starts shooting.
Second Place……………Terri Hall……M & M tote
In a deadly race to crush a threat to national security, an ambitious journalist and straight-arrow FBI agent reluctantly team up to bring down the terrorist cell her investigative reporting has uncovered. When her relentless digging unearths chilling links to the bureau itself, she’s forced to flee—but he can’t let her. Now they’re on the run, both guarding secrets along with their hearts and, despite the passion that flares between them, unable to trust each other…as the bad guys close in.
Third Place………………Cindy Carroll…..M & M tote
After almost being murdered by a serial killer, a skeptic in all things other worldly starts to see ghosts. An investigative reporter, she teams up with the villain’s latest victim to track him down, while trying to convince everyone she’s not insane for talking to people only she can see. She must catch this man before he can kill his current captive, her sister.
Wow! This was a fun ride. First off, I need the three winners to email me with a snail mail address so we can get our great tote bags sent out.
Katt, if you’ll send me a file with your first chapter, I will get that to Christine to critique.
But wait! There’s more good news. Although Katt is the only contestant who will receive a critique from Christine, she wants to see a first chapter from all three winners.
Yeah!! She was impressed with the blurbs and had to really work at picking the three best.
We, at M & M want to thank everyone who was brave enough to put their stuff out here for all to see and for hanging in there with us to the very end. We’ve decided this was so much fun, we’re going to make it an annual event (with another name. LOL) Stay tuned for the contest to NAME the contest!!
In the meantime, keep coming back to check the blog daily. We’ve planned some fun things along with our regular writing/craft related topics and as we’ve found out, it’s way more fun when everyone chimes in. We have a great lineup of guest bloggers for June. On Friday the 4th, we have the very talented, Karin Harlow, who’s got a new RS series coming out soon and who’ll talk about what’s happening in the industry. She doesn’t hold anything back, so get your questions ready. On June 11th, the successful and talented Cleo Coyle who writes the Coffee House Mysteries will be stopping by and she’s bringing a yummy recipe with her. And here’s a date you will definitely want to mark on your calendar. On June 18th, I will be interviewing the amazing Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency who also shoots from the hip and will hold nothing back. In the past six months, she’s gotten book deals for five debut authors. Drop by and ask her what it takes to add you to the list.
Friday, the 25th will be a surprise, which in Liz talk means I don’t have anyone yet!! Count on it being someone great, though.
Again, thanks for making this so much fun for all of us. Without your comments, this would have been just another contest. And if you see any of us in Orlando (all four of us will be there), come up and say hello. Actually, if you tell one of us that you love M & M and give us your business card, your name will be entered in a drawing on Saturday afternoon, July 31 for an M & M tote bag.
