Thank you for all the funny, amazing, creative, and just great entries to the contest here at As the Crowe Flies for the Holiday Hop!
First--Santa's Backup reindeer.
The winning name was given by Barbara Battaglia. She chose BRUCE. Why? She said, "I just picture this massive, muscular, bad ass..."Hey, someone call for a backup..." and then Bruce walks out through a haze of smoke to save the...night." Too fun! That changes things up a bit!
The new Christmas classic will be written by Shannon J. for her story titled:
COOKIES FOR KRIS KRINGLE and would feature "a spunky baker who's lucky in business but not so lucky in love. Until she becomes infatuated with a young, hunky shopping center Santa and starts baking cookies for him, delivered anonymously by a mall runner. Can she find love during the hectic holiday season? And then there is a zombie outbreak and baker chick being holed up in the mall fighting the undead with bags of flour and metal spatulas."
Congratulations! Hope you enjoy your $25 gift cards!
I also want to send copies of the book Vampires! to the runners-up:
Jessica McHugh for her story idea: "North Pole Soul", and it would be about a band of Elves who play the blues and long to be world famous musicians.
Meghan Page for naming Santa's backup reindeer Control S. (Get it?)
And because I love all things dark, even during Christmas, I have some dark honorable mentions:
jersey girl for her story "Slashing through the Snow" - about a family that is hijacked by an evil serial killer while en route to visit grandma for the holidays.
Anthony J Rapino for his "dark Christmas classic entitled, *Night of the Pine* wherein all evergreens pull themselves free of their root systems and lead an attack on the North Pole. That jolly tyrant Santa Claus must be punished for heading the largest conifer genocide in the history of the world!"
Julie Jansen would write "Frosty Frankenstein" about a snow-monster constructed by an evil child scientist.
And last but not least in the dark catagory, Craig Smith would write "Toe Smashers, about renegade elves that go around smashing people's toes with little hammers if they are naughty." Weird I know! It was great to know there are others around who share my penchant for all things dark. :)
J. Chase would write about a sassy elf who would make fashionable eyewear so Crasher the reindeer would not have to be called Crasher!
Thank you, thank you for your entries! Congratulations to all the winners! :) I wish you all the best during this holiday season and the New Year! XO
