And the Winner Is…

Posted on: December 30, 2011

Those of you who follow my blog know that I held a contest in the month of December asking readers what they would do if they had a windfall of $1 million dollars. This contest was a part of a larger Blog Hop created by one of my fellow authors of young adult books, Jo Ramsey; the goal of which was to give each other’s writing blogs exposure and get some great books donated to individuals and charitable organizations.

I want to thank all of you who took a moment to share with me what you would do with your unexpected cash; it was fun seeing what would make you happy! After reading all the entries, I was tempted to announce my mom as the winner of Napoleon Hill’s inspiring book, Think and Grow Rich, since she said she would share the money with her kids, but that wouldn’t be fair and I can just loan her my copy, so, the winner is…

Actually, the winners (plural) are Fenisia Pacini and Jennifer Martin. If I had a million dollars to dole out, I would hire these two to combine their plans of building more animal shelters in Chicago (Jennifer) and hiring more full-time police /animal control officers to educate pet owners about the proper treatment of animals (Fenisia). If the two winners would email me privately with their addresses, I will send you your prizes!

As 2011 draws to a close, I wish all of you a healthy and prosperous 2012. Maybe this will be the year you get a windfall of $1 million. And, if you do, please don’t forget the humble blogger who inspired you to think and grow rich…

Happy New Year to all!

Sandy, I’m very flattered — thank you! Tell your husband to buy you some MegaMillions tickets for your birthday … 🙂 Seriously, I’m delighted and cannot wait to receive the book. Thank you so much.

Sandy,
Hi! Hope you’re doing well! Love your blog! Would love sit down to talk about writing with you!
