It's time to announce the winner for the SPRING 2013 Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest! A huge congratulations goes out to...
...Lauri Meyers with her 800-word manuscript, Mapmaker!
Carter, a "famous" mapmaker, uses a map to go everywhere, even to the kitchen for breakfast. He is sought after for the flawless maps he creates, but when he makes a mistake drawing a treasure map, Carter has to face his fear of getting lost to rescue a pirate.
Congratulations, Lauri! Since this is your second time winning, you will no longer be eligible to enter in future contests. That's a big bummer because I really enjoy reading your work. You can expect your critique within five business days.
Just a reminder: the SUMMER 2013 is currently open for submissions. Get those submissions sent in! Just e-mail your ms to me according to the manuscript guidelines. The deadline is September 30.
