The Winners are...


Firstly, the winner of our Guest Blog Competition is…GARY WILSON!
Well done, Gary, for your intriguing idea of writing about “What is Inspiration?” Gary’s post will appear in June when he will receive a signed copy of our very own Rebecca Connell’s Art of Losing.
We would also like to give special mention to Deborah Durbin, Julie P and Deborah Riccio for their thought-provoking entries!



Secondly, the winner of our Rosy Thornton Prize Giveaway, decided under our usual stringent conditions (one of my children drawing a name from a hat) is… GARYFEN!
Well done! Gary seems to be the lucky name this month! Email me your address and we’ll post you the signed copy of Crossed Wires.


And lastly, we Strictly Writers are winners, having managed to persuade two talented writers to join our team! A big welcome to the lovely Fionnuala Kearney and Roderic Vincent who is hoping to inject a bit of testosterone into the proceedings. It’s great to have you both on board and we look forward to reading your opinions.


Have a great Bank Holiday everyone! We’ll be posting again on Tuesday.

WOW! Thanks very much!

I'm really pleased to win the blog competition AND the book (as well as being extremely nervous about the blog).
I hope I can come close to the high standards of the Strictly Writing team.

What I'll do is go through my usual routine when preparing for an important project.

Now where did I put that brandy bottle ...

Well done Gary!

And a big welcome to Fionnuala and Rod. Although I'm not sure about that testosterone metaphor, Sam :-)
