And the winners are...?!

Thanks to all the bloggowers who entered my blogiversay contest. You commented, twittered, tweeted, Facebooked, blogged and generally offered congratulations. While one person took up the challenge to send a photo of their earrings, no one stood on their head and divided by zero - but hey, next time! I don't think this has ever happened in blog history. There is a three way tie for first! So I'll be giving away three copies of my debut novel for young readers Dead Frog on the Porch. Here's how it went down in blogland. Deb was a strong start with 8 points plus she twittered (so I gave her a bonus point). Then Candy weighed in with at lease 8 points. And then Rebecca did what no other bloggower dared to do. She went above and beyond the blog of duty. She sent a picture of her super cool earrings. Yes, the picture is a little blurry, but, like any writer, she had a critic to content with:
Here is a picture of my earrings bought years ago in Spain. Face made of twisted, painted leather. Sorry for the quality, not easy taking a photo of oneself, and not helped by the baby screaming in the background for attention. Or perhaps she was telling me what she thought of my earrings. :)
Thanks to all who entered. Deb, Candy and Rebecca please send your addresses to my email (janmarkley@janmarkley.com) and I'll get the book off to you by Canada Post dog sled as soon as possible.
I hope everyone will continue to follow my adventures as a writer and explore with me where writing meets life ... or life meets writing.
To blogfinity and beyond! Taking over the world one blog post at a time ... okay, I'm done now.

Deb: June-uary - good one. Not sure how much more rain we can take. The dandelions love it though!
