To celebrate the first month of publication of She Taught Me Everything, I made up a "Face in the Place Photo Contest."
My dear readers sent in photos of themselves reading the book.
There were a gratifying lot of photos -- some people included pets, others snapped the picture unlikely settings, many included libations and snacks. It was heartwarming.
I put those images into a montage -- with music! oooh! It was so much fun I did it twice.
Truth be told, I'd like to have done the one and be done, but the cool music track didn't track across social media gaps, so we have us a TikTok edition and an Instagram one too.
My favorite skipper picked a name from a hat (my actual hat) to chose the lucky random winner of the Face in the Place contest.
And the lucky winner was...Kathy Lacey. We did a handoff of the loot (a gas card) in a grocery store parking lot. Not sketchy at all!
And because of his bold choice of photo shoot, Mr. Mark Taylor earned himself a viewer's choice award. A gas card!
It was great fun for me, and I hope my shutterbug readers enjoyed it as well.
I'd like to do another contest. I'm a fan of fabulous prizes from way back –– any suggestions for ways to award such things?
