A word from our sponsor:

Ho Boy! This past year's end was kind of traumatic for me in my personal life, and I'm responsible for it all :D So before we proceed with the Contest Winners, let me explain the Prize Structure. It was changed 2 times after the original announcement.

The Original One was:
 
1. 1st Place 3 x $200 ea, 2nd Place 3 x $100 ea, 3rd Place 4 x $25 ea, and Runner Up's that receive a vote will be awarded a free Doppler Press Book of their choice that is currently available.

Then, we added an extra $500 into the Prize Pool:
 
2. 1st Place: 3 x $300 ea, 2nd Place: 4 x $100 ea, 3rd Place: 4 x $50 ea, and Runner Up's that receive a vote will be awarded a free Doppler Press Book of their choice that is currently available.

Then, because of how the voting went, and the fact we didn't want to rob the winners of their placement, we had to place the total payouts based on the grouping of votes. While I will not reveal vote totals, I promise you they are in the correct order. Erin worked with me on this as well and we made sure everything was correct and added up.
 
3. 2 x $300 ea, 2 x $200 ea, 3 x $100 ea, 4 x $50 ea, and Runner Up's that receive a vote will be awarded a free Doppler Press Book of their choice that is currently available.
 


 

So without further ado, here are the winners!

 

The two $300 winners which were flying into the stratosphere, were:

All of our Runner-Up's, please message Erin for your free Doppler Press book! For our top Winners, please message Erin (Erin Halfelven in the name selector box of your PM) for what you want to do with your winnings. We paypal mostly. If you need a money order for some reason, please mention that to Erin and I will issue them.
 
I realize the implementation of this contest was a bit chaotic and at times I made listing mistakes in the creation of the reading list while coding it. I own up to that. I promise that in any future contests, both Erin and myself will streamline it a bit better for less confusion and easier implementation. Whatever, and whenever it happens. We have to, its been awhile since I last ran one, and things were very pressured for us both this time around. From both Erin and myself, we wish all of you a Very Merry 2021 Christmas and a Happy New Year of 2022!!!!
 

Please, keep writing! That is what I would like as a present from all of you... to me. :)
