We have WINNERS!

Special guest judge Mary Connealy struggled with choosing just one winner for the Western Hook contest this week, saying:

I can see the germ of a solid story in each of these, which is what an opening sentence is for, to let you know what's coming and hopefully do it in a way that hooks you in.I read them all a half dozen times trying to pick the best one and finally decided...even now I'm waffling and just changed my mind again.I'll pick #3...BUT, I also noticed they were by two people, each with two entries, so I'll send each a book.

So, congratulations to Stephanie Craig and Jean Kinsey!

Stephanie Craig is a freelance writer and mother of two toddler boys from Michigan. She recently rediscovered her passion for writing and is excited about all the possibilities ahead of her.

Jean Kinsey is a widow with six grandkids. She's had several short fictions and creative non-fictions published in periodicals. Her fourth Chicken Soup story will be out in December 08, and a story in Cup of Comfort will be published early in 09. She has just finished an inspiratioal historical novel and is looking for a publisher.

A very special thank you to Mary Connealy for joining us this week. If you ever want a great read - pick up one of her books. I promise you will not be disappointed!!
