The Grand Prize winners have been announced!

2nd Place: $50 Amazon gift certificate  - Entry #187 Chum B.
Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog, too! Your responses made me wish for warm weather, bird song and flowers. I can't wait to start planting again. It will have to wait, because we're due for more snow here tomorrow, ugh!
At least it's good reading (and writing) weather! So without further delay, I'll announce the winner of my giveaway - winner's choice of either of my Decadent 1NS stories:


I'll email you today, magic (love that email address, btw).
New reviews!
Last week, I had a nice surprise - well, two actually! Two reviews for my fun futuristic fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing, Zombie-Killing Princesses.
Dark Divas Reviews gave it 5 stars, and a Recommended Read! Woot!
The reviewer said:
I love fairy tales and zombies, usually not together, but when I saw The 12 Dancing Zombie Killing Princesses I couldn’t help myself.
The 12 Dancing Zombie Killing Princesses is a short story and I finished it in just a few hours, but boy is there a lot going on. Lots of action, and romance. The zombies in this book aren’t your run of the mill undead, which Will and Meilin figure out quite fast. The plot sucked me in, moving fast and keeping me entertained as well as on the edge of my seat. Each new development pulled me deeper into the story wanting to know what was going to happen and if they would save Meilin’s family.

Julie's Book Reviews gave it 4 stars!
The reviewer said:
This is a short book about Will, who returns to City from war wants to become a zombie fighter, on his way home he encounters the 12 adopted daughters of the city's mayor who appear to have some plans of their own ...
I found it easy to slip into the authors world and also liked the way she humanised the zombies even if they are the bad guys!
I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I'm always grateful when a reviewer takes the time to read my work. But it's such a thrill when they love it!
Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Congrats to the winners and your great reviews. Woot!

We were in Spring and then it got cold this weekend. I think we'll be back to normal in a few days--just in time for my birthday, which for some reason is not as exciting as it used to be. ;-)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
