I’ve had a few lately. You probably have, too, if you’ll pause to think back. Maybe you pulled the clothes out of the dryer only to discover a nice clean, dry twenty dollar bill. Maybe an agent rejected your query, but included a few notes on what you could do to improve your approach.
Last week, I reviewed Susan McBride’s book The Cougar Club. Afterward, she emailed to offer a free signed copy of The Cougar Club to a commenter. It made me happy that she did that. I hadn’t expected it. It was a silver lining. Today, I’m announcing the winner. There were 48 entries and the name I drew was:

2. Jenn McKay
3. Shannon O’Donnell
