Book Launch Contest Winners!

YAY FOR CONTESTS!!!! I had so much fun doing this one, you guys--it was really great. I loved how awesome your pictures were; I loved seeing the pictures out there in the wild; I loved seeing how you were all going to top each other with the awesome pictures!! This was really just ridiculously fantastic!

And now--time for prizes!!!

The grand prize, you might remember is this:



PRIZES INCLUDE:
-Signed hardcover copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Audiobook version of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Pin buttons and book mark and a star sucker (yum!)
-A MULTI-TOUCH IPOD NANO!


The grand-prize winner (done through a drawing of all entries) was number 81.


And who was lucky number 81, you ask?

Why, it's...

AMBUR!

But wait! There's more prizes!

Remember, I offered a prize for the person who referred the most people, and one person really stepped up to the plate, referring nearly a quarter of all the entrants. This person's prize is:


-Signed hardcover copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Audiobook version of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Pin buttons and book mark and a star sucker (yum!)


And the winner of this prize is....


BUT WAIT! There's one more prize!

Remember, I said that I would pick my favorite picture out of them all, the one I felt was most creative. (And also remember, rule #9 of the contest was: "9. The winner of the best picture is up to me. No whining." So don't get mad at me if I didn't pick you!)


A reminder of the prize:



-Signed hardcover copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Audiobook version of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
-Pin buttons and book mark and a star sucker (yum!)
-Something very cool and very secret



But there was one picture that I just couldn't help but love--it was so cute and creative, and I loved the freezer pops. Also: I look at her freezer and I look at mine, and I marvel at the amount of work it took to clear out the freezer of everything but pops!




So the final winner of the most creative prize is...



But...I have to be honest. There were a few more people whose pictures were so awesome that I'd like to give them some sort of prize...so I'm in the process of figuring out what else I have as prizes, and then I'll contact some more people for creative picture prizes! So if you didn't win the top prize, just give me a few more days, because I swear, some of these just blew me away!
