animated-clipart-happy-new-year-16

Happy New Year, everyone! Today I announce the final winner in my year-long blog giveaway, a giveaway in which I endeavored to show my gratitude to my followers, fans, and friends for their support by spreading a bit of positivity in what seems, at times, an overwhelmingly negative world. When I started New Year=New Beginnings last January, I never dreamed the year would fly by in the blink of an eye. But here we are, in a brand new year! As I bring 2017’s giveaway to a close, my hope is that 2018 will prove to be a joyous year, filled with positive energy, for each one of you.

Let’s recap the past year and announce December’s winner!

January’s prize was a copy of my book The Peddler’s Bed.

February’s prize was an adorable plushie Curious George.

March’s prize was a set of Pilot’s pens, a Night Writer 2-pack with LED lights, perfect for writing in the dark, and a must have for writers or travelers.

April’s prize was winner’s choice of either a picture book manuscript critique (for writers) or a Personal Library Kit (for book lovers).

May’s prize was a set of two darling bookmarks: A Hippo and a Crocodile.

June’s prize was a Maurice Sendak Nutshell Library box set that includes four tiny classics: Alligators All AroundChicken Soup With RiceOne Was Johnny, and Pierre.

July’s prize was a set of two music CDs by the amazing Emily Arrow: Storytime Singalong volumes 1 and 2!

August’s prize was a super cute, super fun novelty Writer’s Block Journal filled with 300 blank pages, ready and waiting for inspiration to hit!

September’s prize was a Dr. Seuss finger puppet set featuring three lovable characters from The Lorax (my favorite Dr. Seuss book)!

October’s prize was a stylish scarf designed to look like a library due date card.

November’s prize was a new copy of an old classic: Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, a picture book that pairs Robert Frost’s poetic text with Susan Jeffer’s dreamy illustrations.

Last but not least, December’s prize brought New Year=New Beginnings full circle: a signed copy of my book The Peddler’s Bed or, alternatively, a picture book manuscript critique from me.
