Here are the winners for my 200 Followers/Anniversary Giveaway.

1- In exactly ten words, pitch me your book or another famous story.
And the winner is...Emily R. King! Here's her pitch: Sparkly vampire craves Jane Doe but knocks her up instead.
Haha, I love it. Emily, email me your ten pages and query whenever you're ready and I'll forward it to Taryn for your free critique!

2-If you were stranded on an island and could only take one book with you, which would it be and why?
And the winner is...Kathryn Purdie! She chose to take Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Her comment convinced me to finally pick up that book and read it. And now I totally get it--guys if you haven't read this one yet, do it. Kathryn, you can choose from the following books (my top 5 favs) and I'll send it to you. Just shoot me an email with your choice:

Impossible by Nancy Werlin
Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

*Please note that Keturah and Lord Death is out of print but will be re-released this October with a gorgeous new cover...I can't wait, so if you choose that one I'll probably send it then.

3-I love movies almost as much as I love books, so I want to know...what is your favorite book to movie adaptation and why?
And the winner is...Connie B. Dowel! Connie's favorite adaption is The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I recently re-watched this one and I have to agree, it's a great adaptation indeed. Connie, email me your address and I'll send Hunger Games to you ASAP.

4-And finally, one winner will be chosen at random to receive a $20 Amazon gift card for a book or movie of your choosing. 
And the random winner is...Kelley Lynn! Thanks for commenting (and dancing too!) Could you email me and let me know whether you'd prefer a gift card in the mail or via email? Either works for me.

Thanks to all who played along and especially those who threw in a few '80's dance moves for the celebration! Winners can contact me at ilimatodd AT gmail DOT com.

I'm sorry I missed this contest. Looked like fun. I have to say that Keturah and Lord Death is one of my all-time favorites. I got a chance to do a weeklong workshop with Martine Leavitt and it was the best experience of my writing life. I can't wait for the re-release!

Emily R. King said...

Thanks, Ilima! I'll send you my stuff as soon as my betas are through critiquing my MS.

Congrats to the other winners!
