My friend, Marlys, stopped by first thing this morning to oversee the drawing of the winner (See The Other Side of Me). She wanted to make sure that I was fair.
After all, I could have been tempted to show preferential treatment. For example, I could have chosen to send my story off to Big Fan, who almost reached that goal of 10 new subscribers. I thought 9 was pretty darn good.
Instead, Marlys’ gloved hand reached into the bowl and picked the winning entry. All was done fair and square.
The winner received an email from Georgia Stone a couple of hours ago with the story, Chateau de Beaufort, attached. Since a guiding principle of The Diary of the Vixen Divorcee is respect for everyone’s privacy; mine, the people who appear in my postings, and my subscribers’, I am restrained from revealing the identity of the winner.
Perhaps that person will leave a comment, verifying receipt of the story. Perhaps the winner will even share a reaction to the story
Thank you to everyone who played this game. Thanks to your efforts, subscription to the blog has doubled. I hope that you will continue to pass the stories you enjoy along to your friends, and use the Facebook like and the google+ icons to share them. And please continue leaving comments. They are a delight.
Oh, and the velvet glove with the rose isn’t Marlys’. Its mine. It has its own story, which I just may tell some day.
But first, I want to share some holiday cheer, in a few days…..
