We (don't) Have A Winner

Congratulations to all the entrants of my first ever contest with a prize.

The good news is that your entries were fabulous.

The bad news is that when I started this contest, I failed to consider how indecisive I am.

The bottom line is that there is no possible way that I can choose a winner. My solution is to pick the top three five entries and take a vote. Please see the poll to the left and choose your favorite. Voting will end Monday at noon, so hurry!

In the meantime, here are the prizes that were provided by Sourcebooks, Inc. A (long) while back, a publicity rep there contacted me about reviewing the first two books in a series called The Horses of Half Moon Ranch by English author Jenny Oldfield. This series is geared for the "tween" audience, and the first book, Wild Horses, will keep a young reader riveted. The second book, Rodeo Rocky, is a slower paced story with a clear message about the connection between humans and horses.

Both books will be headed the way of the photo caption contest winner. Thanks to all who entered, and don't forget to vote for your favorite caption.

Want to hear something funny? I rec'd a request to review those same books. However, at the time I tried to "verify" that it was a legit request and not a spammer hoping to gain my home address, Sourcebook's website was having some issues. So, I chalked it up as spam and deleted the email. I was a little ticked at the time 'cause I was thinking that with Kat's age and love of horses, those would be the perfect books to review and then pass to her.

Sheesh... now I'm ticked again.

Ha ha!

Bummer I didn't get to your blog sooner *the 13 yo dominates the computer over the weekends* my kids would have LOVED these books! Good luck to the top 5! BTW, very cute picture!
