It’s the moment you’ve all been anticipating!
Monty, show ’em what’s behind door number one!
Why, good golly, it’s a Broyhill bedroom set!
What better place to read a picture book, right?
OK, sorry, just kidding. That is not your grand prize.
You know what the grand prizes are all about—you win a review of your best five PiBoIdMo ideas by a picture book agent! So much better than a stained oak nightstand!
How were the PiBoIdMo 2014 GRAND PRIZE WINNERS selected?
Every participant who signed the PiBoIdMo Winner’s Pledge was assigned a number based upon the order in which they commented. I then used Random.org to generate 10 random numbers. The numbers were checked to their corresponding name, then I ensured that name was on the PiBoIdMo registration post. If the name had been registered, then I double checked to make sure they had not commented on the winner’s pledge multiple times (thus giving them extra chances to win). If all checked out, the winner was verified. (And they all checked out!)
Without further ado, here they are! Please congratulate them!
I will pair each of you with a PiBoIdMo agent and contact you via email.
If you are a grand prize winner, please read the following carefully:
You will have one week (from the date of my email) to contact your agent with your FIVE best ideas. I suggest you flesh them out into a paragraph each, like an elevator pitch. Something short and snappy. The agent will then provide feedback on which idea(s) may be the best to pursue as manuscripts. The agent may provide short and sweet feedback like a simple “Go for it!” or more lengthy feedback providing suggestions. I don’t know what’s in store for you–but there’s one thing for certain–their feedback will help you determine what to begin writing!
Thank you all for participating this year!
Remember there are PLENTY more prizes to come throughout this week—everything you saw during the event plus even a few more!
Maybe even a Broyhill living room!
