Hey look, Jerry won a prize in a box of cereal!

Well, he’s going to be mighty jealous of you PiBoIdMo’ers—because your prizes sure beat a Honey Comb tattoo. (Your prizes are BIG, yeah-yeah-yeah. They’re not SMALL, no-no-no.)

It’s time for the final prizes of PiBoIdMo, the ones offered by our guest bloggers during the month of November. There’s artwork, signed books and critiques galore!

How were the winners selected? I used Random.org to pick a number that corresponded with the order in which you commented on each prize post. Then I checked the winner’s name against the list of registered participants and those who signed the Winner’s Pledge. The name had to appear in both places. If the person commented twice on any of those three posts, they were disqualified. Winners were eligible for one prize only. If a name was selected twice, they were removed and another number was picked by Random.org.

All winners will be emailed within the next few days. If you do not receive an email from me, first check your spam folder, then contact me directly.

OK, so let’s start with the PRIZES YOU DID NOT KNOW ABOUT! These are prizes offered by people who did not guest blog but felt compelled to contribute to the event. Thank you Tamson, Suzanne and Alayne!

First, editor Tamson Weston offered a picture book critique for manuscripts under 1000 words. The winner is:
SUZY LEOPOLD

Next, illustrator Suzanne del Rizzo offered a signed, personalized copy of her picture book SKINK ON THE BRINK. It goes to:
BRENNA FRIESNER

Finally, Alayne Kay Christian offered a picture book critique. The lucky one is:

Well, that’s all folks! This officially concludes PiBoIdMo 2013. It’s been a blast! Thank you for your enthusiasm throughout the event, in your comments and your participation in the Facebook group. I could not do it without you—and that’s not cliché, that’s TRUTH.

Please remember to contact me should any of your PiBoIdMo ideas win a contest, an agent or a contract. I love highlighting your success stories!

But for now, write on! Be sure to consider some of these other picture book writing challenges offered throughout the year:

…and, of course, PiBoIdMo 2014! See you next November!

I bet you feel like a winner just because you have a journal full of ideas!

But hey, you get some swell SWAG, too. (Well, it’s not stuff WE ALL get, it’s stuff WE SOME get, but SWSG is too hard to say.)

All winners will be randomly selected on DECEMBER 8TH from the WINNER’S PLEDGE post. You must have SIGNED IN at the beginning of PiBoIdMo and SIGNED THE WINNER’S PLEDGE by DECEMBER 7th to be eligible. Your name must be in both places. (Sorry, there’s gotta be rules sometimes.)

Enough legalese; onto the prizes!

First, there’s THREE GRAND PRIZES:

Feedback on your best 5 ideas from three literary agents: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Jennifer Rofé and Kelly Sonnack.

   

Each grand prize winner will be paired with an agent. The winners will send their 5 best ideas (written as pitches) to their agent and the agent will respond with brief feedback suggesting which ideas are the best to pursue as manuscripts.

But that’s not all!

There’s MORE!

FOUR FIRST PRIZES!

Picture book critiques from Tara Lazar (who the heck is that?), Brenda Reeves Sturgis, Corey Rosen-Schwartz and Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen!

   

The following prizes have been generously donated, so please, if you like what you see, visit the shops and browse. If you don’t win on December 8th, consider making a holiday purchase from these lovely literary-savvy vendors!

MANY, MANY SECOND, THIRD, AND ELEVENTH PRIZES!

  • Colorful “Make Believe” print by Lily Moon

PHEW! I think that’s it. I might find more stuff under my bed, though. Speaking of bed, goodnight PiBoIdMo’ers! And thanks once again for making this event a huge success. Give yourselves a nice pat on the back—and speaking of bed again—a good night’s sleep! You deserve it!

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.
