And the winner is...

The scythe of revenge is sharp. Rosemary is the bearer and we shall surely pay for our transgressions in blood before dawn. The night air is saturated with the soapy scent of freesia and it intensifies as she draws nearer. It triggers the memory of the dirty deed we carried out in late October. We expelled her from her physical habitation once we discovered what she was; pure evil, shrouded in flesh and artificial kindness. Little did we know, our perceptions were skewed. Our flawed decision had ignited a fire that can only be quelled by human sacrifice.

Congratulations to everyone. Shykia, send me an email with your address and I'll send you a copy of the book!

Congrats Skykia!

(Suzie, is that your subtle way of telling me I should stick to writing fortune cookies rather than novels?

*tries to figure out how to fit 120K words on a cookie slip*)

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
