WINNERS!

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the Oh, Those High School Dances Blog Hop! Kelley and I had a blast reading your stories and viewing your pictures. I laughed. A lot. Like Kelley, some of you had a positive high school experience, but I maintain my opinion. I'd rather burn all my eyelashes off than go back. (Go Team Emily!) Thanks to Kelley for co-hosting this with me. You're awesome, girl!

It was really tough to pick just one winner, so I've listed honorable mentions for each category.
Best DressedSheila Calderon Blankemeier
Honorable Mentions: Brinda Berry,  Ilima Todd, and Jenny Morris!
Funniest Dance Story - Leigh Covington!
Honorable Mentions: Angela Cothran, Hope Roberson, and Suze from Analog Breakfast!
Cutest Couple - Elizabeth Seckman!
Honorable Mentions: Shelly Brown, Charity Bradford, and Theresa Paolo!

The winners have the choice between a three chapter critique or a book ($10 limit). I'll e-mail you soon. Congrats!

For all other participants, Kelley is giving away a query critique and I'm giving away a first page critique. If you'd like the first page of your MS looked over, send it to me! And don't forget, Kelley chose three winners too. So go to her blog to see if you won a prize from her!

Again, THANK YOU for sharing your high school dance experiences! This was definitely a memorable blog hop.
