BAFAB 2007: The Winners
Firstly, I'd like to say that I found Blog Queen's art business venture and Professor's Fantasy's foray into publishing both hugely commendable and I look forward to following how they are going and supporting you both as much as I can;
that I am sure that Sadie J will keep her vow and I would love to hear how that goes too. The best of luck, and I am sure you will end up loving every moment;
that even though Dreamweaver indicates that her hope for reviews are just dreams at the moment - I hope they will eventually come true;
and that 'Anon I' will have equal success in her search for a partner too.
I would also like to say that I found both Anonny Nonny and Intisar's lists wonderfully inspiring and entertaining, so thank you so much for those.
It was a very difficult decision and in the end found I could not narrrow it down to just one winner but three and these are:
(i) Bad Girl for her imagination and verve - she receives a copy a copy of '98 Reasons For Being'.
(ii) Scott for his persistence and for making me laugh - he receives either a copy of my Wegener book (or if he has read that a copy of 'Karluk' by William Laird McKinlay - the story of another Arctic Adventure).
and (iii) Anonymous II who is returning to university in order to study for a PhD. This sounds to me to be an excellent and worthwhile activity and I'd like to wish you all my best. He or she willl receive 'Body Parts' by Hermione Lee - 'a series of brilliant essays...about every aspect of reading and writing, a life.' I hope that she/he will find it inspiring read.
So CONGRATULATIONS Bad Girl, Scott and Anon II - if you would email me (clareATclaredudmanDOTcom) with your addresses I shall send the books to you ASAP.
Thank you all very much for taking part and thank you to Susan, Filberta and Andrew for helping me with my choice.
