Annie West told me to tell you all she had a wonderful day when she came into the lair to talk about Crit Partners. Thank you so much to everyone for the warm welcome you gave my lovely friend.
And now for the exciting bit. The PRIZES! Annie has looked at all the comments and come up with this:
The copy of The Greek Tycoon's Unexpected Wife goes to Keira. In Annie's words, "Because she sympathises with me about Anna!" Huh? Don't know what you mean, Annie.
The copy of For the Sheikh's Pleasure goes to Ms. Hellion! Annie thought it was very perspicacious of Ms. Hellion for saying, "It was like night and day with the critique groups. When you have the right one, it's like being energized; you want to show off your best work and write-write-write. When you're with the wrong one, you'd rather be set on fire than go."
Both Keira and Ms. Hellion will also collect some bits and pieces of Annie West memorabilia. Whoo-hoo! Keira and Ms. H, please email Annie on email@example.com with your snail mail details and she'll send you your prizes.
Annie really liked Gillian's comment on working out what kind of comments people want in their crits. So, Gillian, you collect the signed copy of Untouched!
Annie then chose Flchen and Brownone for the two consolation prizes of the Anna Campbell stationery goodies including the gorgeous desk calendars. Gillian, Brownone and Flchen, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail mail details and I'll send you your prizes.
Congratulations! I'm starting to feel a bit like one of Santa's elves! And don't forget you can find excerpts, news and contests at Annie's site www.annie-west.com
