Where Brave Writers Write

Melody!

We numbered the entries as we received them for our 2nd Where Brave Writers Write Giveaway then used Random.org to select the winning photo, and it was of Melody’s two adorable Brave Writers!

Melody will receive a digital copy of Faltering Ownership or a $79.00 Shopify gift certificate (her choice).

A humongous THANK YOU to everyone who sent a picture! We’ve already highlighted some and will continue to feature others in the weeks ahead. In fact, we created a Facebook photo album just for WBWW.

We’re happy to highlight the writing efforts of your Brave Writers!
