And the Contest Winners Are....

FYI - I will be holding a signed book giveaway on my blog starting this Monday (the 3rd). There will be several chances to enter and it's open to international participants. The winner will be selected at random this time. Make sure to check back on Monday for more details.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program...

Thanks to all who participated in my What's Your Fortune, Cookie? contest and an extra big thanks to those who blogged and/or tweeted about it! To recap, participants were asked to come up with creative fortunes for a fictional character and/or anyone in pop culture for a chance to win an Amazon gift card. Entries that did not follow the rules or are previously published jokes/quotes could not be chosen as winners. I received close to 40 awesome entries, which made my judging job extra hard. I ended up enlisting some fortune-ology loving friends to help me narrow down the competition.

Without further ado...

The first place $30 Amazon gift card goes to Lisa R. at Lisa's Loves (Books of Course). Lisa's fortune for all the "He Man Vamps" out there is very clever and it made me laugh!
Congrats, Lisa!

The second place $20 Amazon gift card goes to Kari at A Good Addiction. Kari's fortune for Marilyn Monroe is cute, true and it rhymes! Not to mention, it's sort of relevant to my book, THE LIPSTICK LAWS... but I don't want to give any spoilers away. :)
Congrats, Kari!

The third place $10 Amazon gift card goes to Kristen at Bookworming in the 21st Century. Kristen's fortune for Alice in Wonderland is great because it incorporates both the literary world and the world of pop culture (the movie was big this year).
Congrats, Kristen!

I had a really tough time picking just three winners, so I thought I'd add one more $10 Amazon gift card to the award pot for an entry that went above and beyond the creative call of duty.

The extra $10 Amazon gift card creativity award goes to Adriana at ~*Loves to Read*~. Not only does this fortune have both pop culture (2012 doomsday) and literary (Twilight) references, Adriana displayed all her fortune entries creatively on her blog HERE.
Congrats, Adriana!

But it doesn't end there; seven is a lucky number in the world of fortune-ology, so I'd also like to add three more of my favorites as honorable mentions. Honorable mentions from this contest will be allowed two extra entries in my next multi-prize gift card competition later on in the summer if they choose to participate. I will be sure to remind the honorable mentions when the time comes.

The three Honorable Mentions are:

DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude for this very funny fortune for a certain cheating celebrity husband:

Claire at Points of Claire-ification for this extra sparkly fortune for Edward Cullen:

Cindy at I Heart Book Gossip for this funny fashion prediction for Lady Gaga:

Thanks again to all who participated and congrats to the winners and honorable mentions! To those who were not chosen this time, please know that I loved each entry, and I wish I could award you all for your Nostradamus geniusness. Please check back regularly for more contests and giveaways for another shot to win prizes. Don't forget to stop by and check out my next giveaway this Monday.

**To all gift card winners, if you did not leave an email address in your entry, please leave it in a comment below so I can contact you with your prize details.**
