The Journey to Charleston Contest Winner Is……..

I’m happy. And I’m sad. We have a winner in the To Live Forever Journey to Charleston Contest, and I am tickled beyond description.

I’m just sad everyone couldn’t win. So many of you tweeted and shared and posted and encouraged me along this crazy path. Please know how much I appreciate every one of you. I hope I convey my gratitude often enough. You are an intelligent, entertaining and giving bunch of people. I wish I could meet every one of you.

I’ve got a long way to walk on this particular highway, the road to success with publication. But I’m determined to be successful enough to meet all of you someday.

Thank you again.

And the Journey to Charleston Contest Winner is……………

Results were compiled from all validated entries. Each entry was assigned an Entry Identification Number. The winning number was generated by the random number generating site random.org, and the drawing was witnessed, signed and stamped by a Notary. The notarized tabulation statement is available for inspection by emailing readme(at)andrawatkins(dot)com, or by contacting the contest’s sponsor, Word Hermit Press at contact(at)wordhermitpress(dot)com.

    ERMAGAHD!!!!!!!!!!!

    Andra, I am stupid giddy right now!!! I wish you could see the crazy smile on my face – and the shock on Mr. Enthusiasm’s face when I whooped out, “YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS” while watching the video with my ear buds in a second ago!

    I cannot wait to meet you. I’m bringing chocolate. Of the Soma variety.

    • Andra picked the perfect winner, Nancy! Have a blast planning your trip to Charleston. Make sure you try the grits!

      May 6, 2014
      • ooooh…grits scare me. I’m never sure if they’re meant to be sweet or savory, and I’m afraid to find out. :-)

        May 6, 2014
      • Like popcorn, grits are a B.D.D. (Butter-Delivery-Device). :D

  13. Andra, why are you making words for the new book? Were all of the other words not good enough for you?! Sheesh, you writers! You write a good book and you get so cocky! lol

    Also, grats Nancy! Glad to see a familiar name being the one who won! If I didn’t live hear already I would LOVE to win a trip to Charleston so I know you will enjoy, particularly with such a great host!

  17. Well I tell ya — I’m excited for the winner, as this is a singular opportunity. I purposely didn’t use the hashtag when sharing because I can’t take time off work without using PTO And when it comes down to it, I don’t want to have to choose between Andra and the Summer Surf Adventure, that’s just not a fair choice to make! So congratulations Nancy!

    May 2, 2014
