Finally, it’s here! The results of the Winter ‘On Thin Ice’ FF Contest.

It took me awhile to decide on the winner (because there was a lot of great submissions!) Good on all of you who were able to enter, because I really appreciate it, and had so much fun reading your entries! They were awesome, you guys are awesome!

Unfortunately, I could only choose one winner.

And because I don’t want to hold you in suspense any longer….

The winner is…


Yeah Gabrielle! I chose your piece for a ton of reasons, but the main one was the twist! I really liked how the piece started in a very innocent mundane way and turned on its head into something a bit more haunting, and fantasy like!

Our runner-up was RaeAnn and it was a close one! Sorry I can’t give you a prize too. I really liked the direction you took the piece, and the multiple POV was a nice touch (I love multiple POV)! (I’ll have your edits to you soon if you’re reading this).

So, Gabrielle if you are reading this(I hope you are) please email me to confirm your winning, and I will send you your ebook!

Thanks again to all who participated. I hope you will continue to follow Novel Ideas and submit entry’s for our next contest!

PS: I will post Gabrielle’s winning piece with her permission this week. (so if you can give me to go or no on that in the email that would be great!)

    Ally, thanks so much!!!!

    I feel you are much too kind…I am totally aware that I’ve a long way to go before I can be as great, and I’m sure that evryone who submitted are totally amazing. In fact, I’m quite interested in reading all those entries! They must be fabulous!

    Ally, thank you! You’re a great host, and I think you’re probably one of the very best writers…A lot of people can write, but not a lot can judge and critique(that someone who can’t do that would be me…), so thanks! You’ve done a great job!

    Take your time…don’t worry about me. I’m sure you’re very busy. I’m sorry to have bother you…Anyways, many, many thanks!

      Oh you’re welcome!

      Everyone has things to work on! Especially me, but thank you for the compliment! Editing and writing just take lots of practice, and if you keep at it you’ll get even better!

      I’ll work on your edits soon!

        Thank you again, Ally!

        I was wondering if you could give me a small consolation prize instead, by posting my entry on your blog, or just by linking to my blog, where I’ve posted my entry:, for the sake of getting my blog a wider readership…

        Anyways, I hate to steal the limelight of the real winner who is Gabrielle, so it’s okay if you can’t or shouldn’t. I’m fine.

        Again, thanks to you, Ally. And to all those who had participated in this contest, I think they all deserve a round of applause!
