WINNERS – The Worst Valentine’s Day Ever

February 28, 2007 by in category Archives tagged as

Vicki Lewis Thompson and OCC are thrilled to announce the winners of The Worst Valentine’s Day Ever contest.

But first we’d like to thank Vicki Lewis Thompson for teaming up with us and for helping make this The Best Valentine’s Contest Ever.

For even more Valentine fun, be sure to look for Vicki’s latest, My Nerdy Valentine.

Vicki Lewis Thompson is uniquely qualified to document the nerd experience and has the National Honor Society pin to prove it. Long before brains were cool, she made passes at guys who wore glasses. She eventually married one.

Being a smart man, he recommended she write romances. Being a smart woman, she wrote about romantic nerds. When Nerd in Shining Armor hit the NYT bestseller list, it validated her secret passion and confirmed what she’s always known – nerds are hot and getting hotter! The runaway success of Vicki’s nerd books indicates that we have officially entered an era of nerd love, which suits her perfectly.

And now for the winners!

But first I’d like to thank all who entered and followed along. It was great fun and we hope you come back next year.


Next year’s too long to wait?

Well okay!

Come back tomorrow when we kick off A Slice of Orange, the e-zine!

That’s right!

Come back every day for lots of fun, friendship, tips and tricks for newbies and inspiration for newbies and veterans alike.

Okay…now for the winners!

First Place:

The Valentine’s Day Scale: Great, Good, Not So Good, Ugly and Get Off Me by Jen Crooks

Second Place:

Smokin’ Valentine by Rebecca Forster

Third Place:

Slip Slidin’ Away by Andrea Baker

Congratulations, girls!

Warmest regards,

Dana Diamond
