This was officially THE hardest comp ever to judge… there were tons of entries and every one of them was gorgeous, cool and full of personality! It took a while, but our panel finally settled on the reader they felt was most like Skye from the Chocolate Box Girls… and I agreed! It was a little like watching Skye come to life!

Well done Grace W – your photos were great, and I think you’ll be a great model for the paperback version of Marshmallow Skye. (Possibly Summer’s Dream too, as Skye and Summer are twins!)

The official photoshoot will take place at the HQ of GirlTalk mag in London, later this month… and I am pretty sure Grace will enjoy her day in the spotlight!

I only wish everyone could be a winner… you were all AWESOME and if the results of this comp work out well, you never know… there may be more COVER GIRL comps in the future! I know what a positive, generous bunch you are, too, and I know you’ll be pleased for Grace. If you’re sad at missing your model-girl moment, nip over to the SUPER FANS SECRET PAGE# and try this month’s Superfan challenge to send in a pic of you ‘striking a pose’ – the best one will win a signed copy of STRIKE A POSE DAIZY STAR! (If you don’t know the secret password yet, sign up for the free email NEWSLETTER – there’s a clue in every issue!)

I’d better get back to work… I’m writing the next book in the series, Summer’s Dream, right now. And don’t forget to check out the Aug 4th issue of MIZZ mag to see if you’re one of the six shortlisted finalists for the MBFR 2011 Comp! What are you waiting for?

  3. Great job Grace, well done! I didn’t enter partly because I didn’t know about it and partly because I live in Australia, so there is no way I could have won! (oh and I’m also not a blond) Anyway, Grace great work, I know you’ll do great for Skye!
