And the winners are…..
Another announcement from Black Bear
I’m pleased to announce we have our winners in the Pegasus ARC contest! Without further ado, please extend your congratulations to:
Forum Winner: GraceNotes.
My favorite is a brief description in Spindle’s End: “…a wriggle of wedge-shaped stairs led down into the main body of the house.”
I’ve met stairs like that, and I love the initial rhyme of wriggle and wedge – so graphically descriptive.
Twitter Winner: exlibris_mhuitt
“And if my choice is to sit graciously in my best robes and accept the inevitable or to bail a sea with a bucket, give me the bucket.”
Facebook Winner: Elizabeth Poyer
Near the end of Dragonhaven, Jake muses that he can’t stand to be indoors for more than a few hours, and even when the weather is terrible he stands in his doorway; I think of that bit nearly every day.
The winners were chosen at random from our total of 428 entries across three venues.
Winners: you need to contact me with your shipping info, and any request for an inscription from Robin*. My email, which I will spell out here in a feeble attempt to defeat spambots, is waxlion88 at gmail dot com. If I don’t hear from you within a couple days, I will begin to poke at you mercilessly.
Thanks, everyone who participated—hope you all had fun reading one another’s entries!

* I’m happy to sign, but with exceptions too rare to go into, I will pretty much only sign a person’s name and ‘best wishes’ or equivalent. I will not sign things like ‘to the greatest sister in the universe!!!’ because she’s not my sister and I might not think she was the greatest sister in the universe if I knew her. I’ll sign the ‘best wishes Robin McKinley’ part and then you write ‘to the greatest sister in the universe!!!’
And THANK YOU ALL for making this a contest worth holding. I might have been so depressed that I’d had to move to an empty atoll with no internet access if three people and an axolotl were all who entered. And yes, it’s been a hoot seeing what quotations you all came up with.
And you three winners . . . eeep. Well, I hope you like it. . . .
