*Clears throat...*

I know. You wanted to come to this post and see a list of winning critiques.

I'm sorry. I am not able to deliver yet. I have ran into a huge snag, and just hope I found the right solution to the problem.

My judges, whom I love and appreciate very much and I am so thankful for volunteering to help me, (*clears throat*)
have not been able to come up with the top five winners. They have agreed on two, but the other 3 have been in a quarrel and I must say it's gotten a little heated.

My solutions is to ask for 3 volunteers, WHO ARE NOT PARTICIPATING IN THIS CONTEST AND ARE NOT FRIENDS WITH THE PARTICIPANTS

and of these 3 volunteers, I ask you to PERSONALLY email one choice.

Please comment below if you want to help. The first 3 to comment will get to send me the vote.

Email at

ink in the book (at) gmail (dot) com  -  no spaces.

PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT ON YOUR CHOICES IN THE COMMENTS. I PREFER NO PERSUASION.

Thank you.

  1. It's your blog. Can't you make the final call? How many are tied for the last three spots?

    1. Yes, it's my blog and I could decide if I wanted to. But I want to keep things fair and unbiased.

      I've got some volunteers who have emailed, so hopefully it will be settled soon.

      All 3 spots are tied with 2 votes each. So I guess that's what happens when the entries are all amazing!!!

  4. I'm pretty sure I'm out of the running, so I can wait for conformation of that. :)

    Too bad the last spots weren't by random drawing. :)

    2. Meh, I've got to figure out how to get it through to people that this is NOT another Twilight, and is in fact very very different, almost the polar opposite. Until then, I don't stand much of a chance. If I could just get an agent to read the first few chapters, or better, the first eight so that she has the chance to save herself, I'm so sure that this could do well. I'm not a confident person. My nature, I'm very self-depricating. To actually believe in something as I do with this is extremely rare. I believe in the story, and I believe in the message and it's importance. Kind of odd timing that the VAWA was allowed to expire. So hearing this is more important than it was.
