Snappy Winners

Here are the winning entries to our Snappy Answers to Frequently Frustrating Questions contest. Of course, we wish we could give prizes to each and every yadda-yadda-yadda because they all yadda-yadda-yadda in their own way. But, of course, it came down to which entries we felt yadda-yadda-yadda.

If the winners would please e-mail RobinJayEve[at]aol.com, we'll get your t-shirts and bookmarks in the mail at our earliest yadda-yadda-yadda.

Q&A #1 - Brooke Taylor
Q: You wrote a book? Oh, what’s it about?
A: It’s a novel for teens that deals with suicide.
Q: For teens? Oh, teens are very visual. Did you do your own illustrations?
A: No. I'm not allowed to use sharp objects like paintbrushes. Not since the (makes finger quotes) incident with the reporter...hey is that a pen you have there?

Q&A #2 - Lindabudz
Q: You’re an author? You must like the Harry Potter books, huh?
A: I do. They’re great.
Q: So then you’re going to make a ton of money, too, huh?
A: Well, you know, almost as much as J.K., but with the dollar getting weaker and weaker against the pound, it's really apples to oranges. [... proceed to ramble on about the economy until the querier's eyes completely glaze over.]

Q&A #3 - Hélène B
Q: You signed a two-book contract?
A: Yes. Yes, I did.
Q: So Thirteen Reasons Why is going to be a series…like Nancy Drew?
A: Kind of. Actually, I have Nancy Drew come in on the second book to discover it wasn’t a suicide after all. It’s called Thirteen Suspects.

Honestly, Jay is very excited to start using these on a day-to-day basis. So thank you!

Hah! These are great. A big YAY for the winners.

Although I have to admit, I was rooting for Cynjay's "the whole thing was just a dream. She's fine." to win because it made me laugh the loudest.
