Cranky Yankee! for her entry The Mangrove Legacy.
Hurrah and kudos to her — she will have to let me know how she would like her name to appear in the serial novel and whether she desires to be helpful or to perish ignominiously, and I will be working her into the narrative, just like Emily Bronte did with all her friends and relatives.
But the remainder of the entrants will not go away empty handed: it was a very difficult choice to make, and in honor of that, I will be working little hints of some of the contestants and their entries into the story, which I hope will meet with your satisfaction.
Thank you all for showing your support and taking part in the contest.
