Return of the Web-less Blogger, and Winners of the Super Spud Contest!

Okay, okay, nobody panic... but I think I just got cryogenically frozen by life. I looked at a calendar today and realized two weeks must have run away while my back was turned, so I’m writing to say g’day again to everyone and a huge, grovelling sorry to anyone who participated in my Super Spud contest and is still waiting for the results. The trouble is I’m going through a separation at the moment and had to move at short notice the day I opened the contest, so I’ve been living between houses, trying to arrange accommodation, not having internet and working at such bad hours I couldn’t even get to the library to use the net there, so I’ve let my blogging fall by the way-side. Again, I’m sorry, but the good news is I have a house and I’m getting the internet on, so I’ll be back to business as usual as soon as possible.

Now while we’re on the subject of good news, I’m thrilled to announce the winners of the Super Spud contest. Firstly, the winner of best flavor/personality combination for a chip packet character, and the recipient of a signed copy of the Super Spud Trilogy and a cameo role for their creation, goes to Rakesh Chauhan! Michael loved the idea of an Italian ‘Mobster’ Meatball flavor with stereotypical Italian accents and a don known as ‘The Spudfather’, and he loved your illustration entry, so he’s working your idea into his next book!

Secondly, the winner of best Super Spud illustration and recipient of a signed copy of The Super Spud trilogy and a $30 e-book voucher, is John Sneddon! Congratulations!

And finally, the rafflecopter winner of the $10 e-book voucher is Tammy Therault!

And that’s it! You have no idea how much I’ve been stressing over getting this announcement out there so it’s an extra big congratulations for me, a sorry it took so long, and a thank you to everyone who participated. Also, I want to give a huge thank you to Michael for approaching me to run the contest, and if you haven’t checked out his book yet, here’s my review to let you know all about it.



  1. Thanks to all who took part and I'm happy you are back to the blogging world, Katherine! Hope things get more settled now for you.

    1. No worries, Michael, thanks for asking me to join your promotional journey. :)

  2. Just look after yourself - everything else can wait.

    Congratulations to the winners!
