Before announcing the Grand Prize winners, I had to show you how I'm feeling after a week of duking it out with Vicki:

She's a hard hitter and a worthy opponent. I suppose technically we're at a stalemate, having each won 2/4, but for future reference, I'll think twice before messing with her!
Okay, now on to the part you've all been waiting for. The Grand Prize Winners!
Grand Prize #1: Ten-page Critique by Sarah LaPolla of Curtis Brown!
Grand Prize #2: Gift Basket including a $40 Gift Card to Amazon!
Congratulations to the winners! Please contact me as soon as possible with my "Contact Me" tab, and I will get you taken care of.
Also, I want to thank Vicki for playing along with me all week, and I want to thank Sarah for so generously offering a ten-page critique! I'm kindof sad this has come to an end. :(
And finally, my big news is that I'm heading off to France tomorrow (squee!) so I won't be around the blogosphere for the next little while. But, darling husband has agreed to peek in from time to time and fill in for me. I have no idea what he'll say. I might be a little worried. Wish me luck!
