And the winner is....

Thanks to everyone who participated in my side contest to the Smart Bitches WHA? contest. Just over half of the entries guessed correctly which one was mine, but quite a few were thrown off by the vampire entry. The correct answer was--wait, I'll give you a hint:

Inspired by Canadian cutie Brad Gushue, FROZEN IN TIME (Entry #7) tells the tragic love story of a Mormon girl and a Swedish curler as they battle amnesia, sunstroke, and right-wing Marxists.

Congratulations to Maria, who won an autographed cover flat for Eyes of Crow by guessing the correct answer and by being the one whose name was on the first piece of paper my husband's hand hit when we did the drawing.

Oh, and by the way, I won the contest.

UPDATE, 1:30 PM: Team Gushue just took 6 (yes, 6!) in the sixth end to go up 10-3 over Finland. Gushue could have made it a world-record 7, but threw it out the other side. The commentators said it might have been a "sympathy throw" so as not to embarrass his opponent. Isn't he the ginchiest?

I KNEW that one was you! You are just so very evil in your SoH. It stood to reason.

Now, send that query into a real pub house and see if it gets a partial request.

That would be funny! My agent would kill me, though. Although she might get a kick out of the synopsis.

What's an SoH?
