And now for the winners...

Thank you so much for the great response to our Growth Spurt campaign!! 
I was so excited to see 29 comments and that my post educated or moved people to follow up with their children’s pediatricians about concerns. Many people - unless they know someone with a growth disorder - aren’t aware that being on the small side can be a warning sign. We tend to think, “Well, I’m short” or “I was a late bloomer.” But it’s worth checking out. If I hadn’t listened to my instincts (and had an on-the-ball pediatrician) I might have missed the opportunity to help my daughter reach her full height and best health. 
I’ll give “one to grow on” (get it?! :-) ) so my total donation will be $30 to MAGIC for all our your comments. This amount will help cover a year membership to the organization for some family in need. So look what you did by just taking a moment to respond!
And now for the prizes. I asked my son to call out six random numbers to determine the winners of the books. Here they are:
Anne M. Leone - The Literary Ladies by Nava Atlas
Ani Louise - Today I Will by Eileen and Jerry Spinelli
Viox - Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
Wysefyre - Pie by Sarah Weeks
Rose Green  - Writing and Selling the YA Novel by K.L. Going 
Susanna Leonard Hill - Nothing But the Truth and a Few White Lies by Justina Chen Headley
If you are a winner, we will be contacting you soon. If you don’t hear from us, please feel free to follow up at migwriters(AT)gmail(DOT)com. 

[Edited to add: I was able to send emails to everyone except Rose and Wysefyre. Please contact us so we can get your addresses. Thanks.] 


  1. Wow, thanks so much! I just read Debbie's post on The Literary Ladies and it sounded fabulous. Ecstatic to hear I'll have a copy of my very own. Thank you! And thanks so much for the original growth spurt post, I'm was really grateful to have learned something.
