After plates of ghoulish treats and glasses of gummy worm martinis on Saturday evening, the judges have chosen their top six picks for the Can You Leave Us Breathless? Blogfest Contest. I just want to say, you all made it difficult and we had to meet again on Sunday for coffee to come up with the semi-finalists. There were kisses and bugs and oh-my-moments galore in the posts. This group is talented and we enjoyed reading each of your entries. Again, we weren't strict about word count or grammar in this contest. If it was close to 300 it was a go. All that you had to do is leave us breathless, which many of you did.
You must know that reading is subjective and us judges argued a lot during this process. There were so many wonderful entries and we applaud you all.

Vote for an honorable mention...
So, since reading is subjective, not only are we going to have you vote on our six picks, but we ask that all the participants chose one honorable mention that they felt should have made the list. It can not be one of the six semi-finalists. Please nominate your choice in the comments of this post. Whoever gets the most votes will get a prize.
Thank you for being such great supporters of your fellow writers. I'm sure your comments were appreciated.

Voting will end at mid-night October 27th (EST) and the winners announced on Friday, October 28th.
