And The Winners Are...

Because she is so beautifully fabulous, Sarah has made her decision. Already! And it wasn't an easy one! There were so many fantastic pitches, I don't know how she was able to narrow it down.

So, without further are the winners:

First Place (Submit Full Manuscript)
Janet Johnson

The Other Prince
Before Prince Charming rescued Snow White; before he fought her evil step-mother in a knock-down, drag-out battle, he faced his biggest challenge to date: training his inept little brother, Prince Bob, to be like him. This is Bob's story.

Second Place(Submit Partial 3-Chapters)
Jaimie Lynn Teekell

We Who Are Gods
When Ares, God of War, regrets his life of senseless slaughter, he leaves Olympus to live as a single father in America. He’s happy passing as a human to his teenaged daughter and refuses to tell her the truth -- until the Olympians are after them.

Third Place (query critique)
Neil Ostroff

An alien invasion isn’t always preceded by world-wide military reaction and breaking news reports, sometimes a thirteen-year-old boy is the only one who knows. Tim Madison always thought he was ordinary, if not a little boring. When he wakes one morning to find the world frozen in time and all the colors mixed-up, he learns how special he is.

Congratulations to the winners! And a huge thank you to everyone that participated! You guys are the best. Winners e-mail me and I will give you instructions on how to submit to Sarah.
And a huge thank you to Sarah for making all of this possible!
Have a great weekend everyone!
