The Pumpkins Have Been Carved And Chosen
And so the pumpkin carving contest is complete.
Six entries total. And I promise you: this is a very hard decision on my part.
Check out the entries, which I’ve named (the name of the entry is above each photo):
“The Zombie Pigman”
(For a bonus version of the Penmonkey one — here’s a shot of it glowing.)
These are all very exciting, obviously. I mean, I want to vote for them all and cover them in kisses (WHAT SHUT UP I CAN MAKE OUT WITH A PUMPKIN IF I WANNA.) Just the same, everybody can’t be winners (unless it’s elementary school), and so I have chosen –
It’s both a killer pumpkin and a cool-ass photo. (Love the way the light reflects on the book.) And it depicts a whole scene straight out of the book, which is a win.
So, that’s my winner.
It is the pumpkin of Melanie Weisberg, aka Rattify from the Twitters.
Melanie, you win a big ol’ stack of books from me. So: I’ll email you! Congrats!
NOW, it is your turn to vote for a winner.
Drop a comment below and vote for your favorite (excluding Melanie’s “Cernunnos’ Cage,” as she already won once!) — the second prize winner gets three Miriam Black e-books, including a copy of the newest, The Cormorant.
To vote: just put the name of your favorite pumpkin entry in the comments.
Again: do not vote for Cernunnos’ Cage.
The others are fair game.
EDIT: Voting ends at midnight tonight!
