Remember that March 1st submission deadline from oh-so long ago? Remember the messages and alerts around the site, reminding you to submit and be eligible to win $1,000? It was a while back, and no doubt some of you forgot, but not WEbook!
All pages submitted to PageToFame before March 1, 2010 have made their gauntlet run through the voting cycle, and three pages have emerged above the rest. The 4's and 5's stood out in these authors' bar graphs like Yoa Ming taking a walk through Hobbiton.
And so, without any further delay, the three winners of the $1,000 prize for highest rated 1st pages are:
Mad River by Skyval
Innocence and Arrogance by Kreeves106
Last by Crusoe
Click on the titles to see the reader and agent ratings the pages received. There were some interesting differences between the two groups!
Congratulations winners! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we asked each winner to send us a pic, and answer the question that everyone will be asking...
What will you do with your freshly won $1,000?
Skyval: I will pay someone to wash all the windows in my house (I have 42 windows!), and buy paper, ink, and a shiny new red pen.
Kreeves106: My husband and I will be using the money to take a trip to Omaha, NE where my son and his family live. I have a new grandson born on December 3rd that I have not even seen yet so winning this money is truly going to make a lot of people happy.
Crusoe: I SHOULD put all the money towards my credit card bill but I'm seriously considering chartering a biplane thrill ride.
Three cheers for the winners! If you didn't make the March 1 deadline, don't fret yet. All pages that were submitted before April 1 are also automatically entered to win another $1000 (just one winner this time, though). So keep an eye on your bar graphs, and if they're looking exceptionally top heavy, start thinking about how to spend your $1000!
