New "Sleeping Beauty" Giveaway!

I am so proud of the work of the "Sleeping Beauty" Rewrite contest entrants, that I have decided to drum up some readership for the entries by holding a giveaway. Here are the details:
1) The prize is a print by one of my favorite artists, Cat Mallard. She has an Etsy shop called Darkling Woods, which you can link to by clicking on the title of this post. The image of the print the winner will receive is shown here.
2) You must be a contactable person -- for example, someone who has signed on as a follower. In any case, you must be someone I can easily reach to get contact information (please don't put any special personal info in comments).
3) You can be from anywhere in the world, but you must be 18 (I will make every attempt to verify that bit of information). Students of mine, who will be in upcoming Fall classes, are NOT eligible.
4) The contest entrants who are posted on or the Diamonds and Toads contest blog are not eligible. After all, the point is to drum up readership! There is no problem with entrants' family and friends commenting and entering.
5) If you wish to enter the contest, please include that in the comment. Only comments on the winning story or one of the other contest stories count in this contest. Of course, I'd love it if you comment on other posts, but those comments won't count for this special giveaway.
6) Comments should be at least a full sentence or two.
7) You may comment on as many stories as you like, but each person who comments will only be entered in the contest once.
8) The contest ends at midnight, August 28. That's Eastern Standard Time.
9) The winner will be chosen the first week in September. Every name will be written on a uniform-size piece of paper and put in a container, then, in front of one of my classes (so there will be at least 20 witnesses), I will pull the winner's name.
10) The winner will be announced on this blog some time in the first week in September.
Good luck, and remember, as darling and wonderful as the prize is, the real prize is enjoying these great stories.
