And the Summer Winner Is.....

Hello! Sorry I'm a little late in getting this up. My excuse is a government test, but you know, who likes excuses?

So, thanks to, the winner is Cheyanne! Please e-mail me at christacarol_jones(at)yahoo(dot)com with your mailing address and which critique you'd like: First 10 pages, Query, or 2-5 page Synopsis. CONGRATS!!!

I really enjoyed reading all of your favorite childhood memories in the summertime. While I have many memories of running barefoot after the ice cream truck (and the ice cream man frequently giving me an extra free treat), I also have vivid memories of running through the neighborhood to squeeze out of the small crack in the brick wall, cross the busy street to 7-11, and spend a looong time picking out which jolly ranchers I wanted (for 5 cents each) and filling up a Big Gulp with Slurpees. And then there were the times me and a neighbor would tie a pillow case around our necks and run around the street jumping off mailboxes (um, the brick ones) pretending to be Wonder Woman. All of this, of course, was done barefoot.

I hope everyone is having a saucy summer so far! Bare with me as I play around with the new template thingie majig. I need to fix my header now, it annoys me being off-center! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to crash. With music camp in the mornings and swim lessons in the late afternoons followed by night school, I'm ZAPPED.



  1. Woo Hoo! I'm so excited! Emailing you now!

  2. Congrats to Cheyanne!

    I think all of my favourite summer memories are barefoot!
