Winning Author for Best Opening Pages

Your current clash hostess is Michelle Massaro

And the winner is...

Roseanna White's A Stray Drop of Blood

Congratulations, Roseanna! Thank you for battling. And thank you, Michelle, for placing your very worthy excerpt from Undercurrent into the ring. Both excerpts were so good that all of our commenters praised both.  Here are a few of the messages we received:

*Excerpt A is very well written and engaging from the start. Great job! Excerpt B also is very good and presents some interesting questions to a mystery fan like me. I wish I could vote for both!

*Wow; these are both very gripping. I'd read further in both. But I voted on the one I'd start with... Blessings on both authors!

*Both of these were excellent! I had such a hard time choosing. They both drew me into the story and immediately made me feel sympathy for the characters. God job, authors!

And our drawing winners are...

Tammy G (from Tammy's Book Parlor)



Both of you have been sent an email about your win!

Congratulations, Roseanna!! I loved A Stray Drop. One of my fav's last year. I REALLY need to get your next one. Problem is, I need about two free days, because I know that once I start I won't be able to do anything else until I'm done.
Michelle, thanks for playing with us! I didn't do frozen pizza last night, but plan to give in tonight! Still enjoying Undercurrent. Arak just pulled a half-drowned Cassie out of the water. Getting interesting!

I'm so honored! And congrats to Michelle on a great opening too.

Thanks April--and good luck on those free days, LOL. Maybe with summer coming you'll find them. =)

A palm-stinging high-five to you, Roseanna! And thanks, COTT, for hosting both of us.

As has been said, it was a tough choice. Two great writers, both deserving to win. I've read and loved A Stray Drop of Blood, and Undercurrent by Michelle Griep is on my to-be-read list. Praying for God's blessing on both of your careers. You are 2 authors to watch.
