The Magic Mirror

The Grace Lin Giveaway Winner

Thanks again to everyone who participated in last week’s giveaway. I know some of you wanted to win so very badly — in retrospect, I should have gotten more copies. Darn!

To make the winner’s selection as random as could be, I had my daughter pull a name from a box:

And the winner is . . . .

Stephanie Pyle!

Woo-hoo for you, Stephanie — and may Grace’s book bring you magic.


P.S. Of course I couldn’t stop at just one, so I picked a second winner for one of the other books I got at the conference! Kat Yeh, your name was on the second paper my daughter picked — which means you get a pretty good consolation prize, I think. You get the choice of one of the following autographed books written by the awesome authors who attended the NJ SCBWI summer conference: “Sirenz” by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman, “Popular” by Alissa Grosso and “Eighth-Grade Super Zero,” by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich.

And those of you who didn’t win, remember, there is always another giveaway! One of the editors from the conference, Kristin Rens of Harper Collins just mailed me an awesome historical book which I cannot wait to review, and then share — “The Berlin Boxing Club” by Robert Sharenow, set in 1936 Berlin, about a Jewish boy dealing with Nazi bullies in school.
