Thank you to Elizabeth Mueller for the award.
The A to Z Challenge has come to an end and I shall miss it. I've made lots of new blogging friends and gained over a hundred followers. I've read posts that brought tears to my eyes, others that made me laugh, even spitting out my coffee on a few occasions. I pondered topics such as beginning of the Universe and whether a Kindle could really replace my beloved books. I learnt about other bloggers lives and even more about the life of writing.
If there was one negative point about the challenge, it was that due to the large number taking part, I didn't get around to visiting every entrants blog. I feel truly sad about this and if you were one of the blogs I never visited, please accept my apologies.
To my fellow A to Z'ers, Arlee Bird, and the other bloggers who helped to run the challenge, I salute you.
Now for the big prize announcement. Using Random.org, the winner of my 300 Followers Competition and a prize of $40 (£30) in Amazon vouchers is:
As you may have noticed I also passed 400 followers during the challenge and so it seems only fitting that I should offer another prize to celebrate. But what? I asked myself. After much thought I decided the prize should be a copy of the 2013: The Aftermath anthology in which my piece of flash fiction, Hometown, appears.
Using Random.org again, the winner is:
Congratulations to you both. I will contact you shortly to arrange your prizes.
Don't forget to visit my blog on Wednesday, I have some exciting news to share with you.
