Contest Closed


The contest officially closed at 9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time today and the form is no longer operational. Thanks to everyone who entered.

The response time and announcement of the winners (who will receive full and partial requests from Ms. Paquette) will depend on the number of entries. The more entires, the longer it will take--one of the pitfalls of not having an entry cut-off.

Ms. Paquette hopes to have the results within two weeks. I'll give updates as to her progress, and the winners will be notified directly via email as well.

Good luck to all who entered!

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them in comments or email me at marytlindsey@gmail.com

Compared with the usual 4-6 week wait, two weeks sounds like a deal. Thanks so much for the opportunity. :-)

How many entries? I remember the one in the summer with Nathan Brandsford was for a maximum of 200 entries and it closed within two or three minutes of opening.

Mary Lindsey said...

We had just over 600 entries. Easy 200 in the first few hours. Folks were more relaxed because of the longer time frame.

Ms. Paquette is very generous.
