Hello wonderful people! :D First, I'd like to say... wow! Just... wow! I mean... We've been a group for just a little over a week and already about 70 members! I'm so happy you don't even know! So thank you all so much and continue to spread the word :)

Now... what I'm sure is the only part you guys really care about:

WINNERS :D

First place winners are the following with a tie of 15/15 points:

Half a Woman by :iconchristianonfire7:

and

The Consequence of Beauty by :iconvanitysedge:

-----<><><>-----

Second place with a three way tie with 12.5/15 points each:

An Artist's Pledge by :iconxxsilverflowerxx:

Hold My Hand as We Take Off by :icononixd:

and

Generosity, Pass it on by :iconladyofsilver:

CONGRATS to all the winners, now, we had some really good pieces that were just... amazing and deserved to have a part in making it in the book. So I decided to have place holders. The following people were graded only by me and had to have at least 4/5 points to win a spot in this area :)

PLACE HOLDERS include:

My Agony by :iconsweetnkindanerdy:

Hand by :iconsourair:

Button by :iconremanth:

Crown Me With Bones by :iconsolarumnyx:

Snow like Ashes by :iconsolarumnyx:

Worry by :iconasianstateofmind:

Her Voice by :iconasianstateofmind:

What Poetry is to Me by :iconasianstateofmind:

Anything Can Heal Scars by :iconleviathanandtad:

The Cricket by :iconladyofsilver:

Enternal Battle by :iconladyofsilver:

That Moment by :iconladyofsilver:

-----<><><>------

Congrats to all of you as well :) Now, place holders are people who I'll slip into a book if we have extra pages or, if I think it's a good enough cause, we'll create another book with them to donate to maybe another cause that may/may not have to do with cancer. If you have a suggestion about that, let me know. :)

Next, new rules... er... lack of, actually. I had a rule set of 5 pieces per member per month... that was... blown up in the process. I'm getting rid of that rule completely... it's unneeded. *shrugs* and honestly, I don't really want to go about enforcing that rule or setting that up in the folders... plus I think you guys should have as many entries as you want... I'll just have to better my time reading these and not just save them all for the end... again... X) also, the winners, there will be 1st and 2nd place winners, but if there are ties, I'm not going to try and choose. All ties for first and second place will just go in the "winners" folder... we have room for that X)

Also, all 3 judges may or may not grade the piece. We have the grading system all figured out so don't worry. Just worry about writing more amazing pieces :)

Now, I've had some questions asked to me, so I thought I'd answer them, but I'm going to add that onto the "Welcome, now what's the point of this group" section, so please go read that for any questions. If I didn't answer your question, don't be afraid to contact me. I'm almost always here and will always answer your questions within 24 hours :)

If you have any suggestions to better this group, don't be afraid to share :) Also, keep spreading the word! We've had some awesome people on here and I'd love to keep spreading the group out :) I may make a facebook and tumblr  page for this group later on :) I'd love to spread this group out beyond dA :)

Thank you all,
♥Blake Moriarty

It will be published, at least, as an e-book at the end of the year/beginning of next year. I have to format it and beta the stories and get things done ^^;

Congratulations everyone! :clap:

I have a suggestion though! Perhaps you could include links or thumbnails to the winning pieces in your journals? :) I know it requires more work, but I think more people will check out the works if it's only a click away. :aww:
