Shrinking Violet Winners!

Last night the contest for Shrinking Violet ended and because there were so many entries (way to go you all! Nice song picks!!) Danielle decided to choose three winners instead of two. Here is what she had to say, as well as her picks for the winners:

I listened to them all and it was not easy to choose but the most relevant to Tere's story are the following:

The winner: Alyce for India Arie's Beautiful Flower because it's about hope and believing in yourself. Not to mention, it's such a beautiful song!

Second Prize: Thao for Jordin Sparks's Reflection. This song is really relevant because in Shrinking Violet Tere wants desperately to come out from behind her mask.

Third Prize: Deltay for Demi Lovato's This is Me because it's about conquering your fears and reaching your dreams.

The first winner will get the arc and second two will get surprise Shrinking Violet Prize Packs. I will put all three songs on my web site and give the winners credit for them.

Danielle also wanted me to thank everyone else for simply commenting and leaving such great song suggestions. I'm sure it was really hard for her to pick the winners, even if there were three.

Shrinking Violet is out May 5. There should be another promotion April 5, so keep a look out and my review should be up in May. Pre-order it now, or get it when it's released.

-It's late, so I'm going to simply post this for now...if you won, email me with Shrinking Violet in the subject: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com. If you don't email me, I'll try and get in touch tomorrow!

Want to hear the winning songs?

India. Arie- "Beautiful Flower"

Christina Aguilera-"Reflection" (I'm guessing this is the song Thao meant, so I chose to post Christina's version as it's the full one!)

Demi Lovato-"This is Me"

Genevieve: Aw, I'm sorry!

Karen: Definitely. I didn't know the first one by India.Arie. It's awesome.

Wow! I can't believe I won! :) I actually considered submitting a different India Arie song - I'm glad I stuck with this one! I'll email you my information.
