Drum roll,  please!

It’s time to announce our PiBoIdMo 2013 GRAND PRIZE WINNERS!

How were these 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 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.

You will have one week to contact your agent with your FIVE best ideas. I suggest you flesh them out into a paragraph, 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! I daresay it was the best year ever!

Remember there are PLENTY more prizes to come—everything you saw during the event plus even a few more! Signed books and critiques and art, OH MY! More to come all this week…

As a children's book author and mother of two, I'm pushing a stroller along the path to publication. I collect shiny doodads on the journey and share them here. You've found a kidlit treasure box.
