Anyway, it's time to announce the winners of the Snarfy Subtitle Contest! We had a total of 131 entries, and you really made it difficult for me to pick a winner. I wish I had the cash available to award multiple prizes, but it's just not feasible right now. I hope that you'll keep coming back for future contests so I can share the wealth, if you call $25 and a bunch of random stuff "wealth," which I just did.
So first, I'd like to announce our 10 finalists.
Adrienne: A Wrinkle in Time: Brainy Kid Gets the IT Kicked Out of Him
Hanna Banana: What to Expect When You're Expecting: If You Don't Know How This Ends, Why Did You Get Pregnant?
Jim Danielson: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: A Tale of Mushrooming Problems
Kiersten: The Scarlet Letter: The "A" Is NOT for Awesome
Kiersten: Treasure Island: Contains No Muppets
Llehn: Waiting For Godot - The Writer's Essential Guide On Waiting To Hear Back from A Literary Agent (which is not a reflection of my personal experience!! - Carrie)
Mariah Irvin: Rumpelstiltskin: Vertically Challenged Man Steals Children for Funsies
Natalie: Jane Eyre: Ugly People CAN Fall In Love, They Just Have To Go Blind First
Paul Michael Murphy: Carrie or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Prom
Whirlochre: Robinson Crusoe — Have Beard, Will Unravel
And after much hair pulling, soda snarfing, and general amusement, I think I'm going to give this one to Kiersten for The Scarlet Letter: The "A" is NOT for Awesome. Because I won't ever be able to read that book without thinking about the new and improved subtitle.
Kiersten, please email me with your mailing address, gift card of choice (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Borders) and a choice of stuffed dudes made by yours truly. You can have a ninja, a vampire, or a zombie. I tried to take a picture of them, but I broke the camera. Seriously. How sad is that?
The random bonus prize goes to Mariah Irvin for mentioning my contest on her blog! Mariah, I'll need your address and choice of vampire, ninja, or zombie too.
I'll be doing another contest in the next couple of months; hope you'll come back.
