This Wednesday . . . A Winner!

And the winner of Hint Fiction:  An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer (W. W. Norton, 2010) is...


Congratulations, Sally!  Go ahead and shoot me an email at MadelineMora-Summonte[at]hotmail[dot]com with your address and let me know if you'd like me to sign my story's page.

Here's how the choosing of the winner went - 

As you can see, it started out well.  Mrs. Larry is all ready, Larry is on his way.  But then...

Mrs. Larry decided to eat the bowl and Larry, well, he got distracted...

...and they both ended up eating the plant.  So, my husband ended up picking the winner because it would be 2011 before the tortoises wandered back to the bowl.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered.  I really appreciate you all stopping by and I enjoyed "meeting" some new people.  I hope you all come back and visit me and the tortoises again!


  1. What a creative way to pick a winner!

  2. Thanks, Donna! It would've been more creative if some little tortoises had cooperated - oh well. :)

  3. Thanks Madeline! I'll get you my address, and indeed, please sign your story page. Happy Holidays!

  4. Will do, Sally! And congratulations again! :)
