STARGAZER Contest #6 -- one week until the launch!

For STARGAZER Contest #5, I asked you guys to send in your favorite movies made before 1960. I admit, I had no idea you all would have such incredibly good taste in films. This list is pretty impressive:

The Thin Man
Roman Holiday
Top Hat
The Maltese Falcon
North by Northwest
Sleeping Beauty
Rebel Without a Cause (Lori Ann even has a James Dean tattoo!)
Casablanca
Cat People
Pajama Game
Rebecca
Bride of Frankenstein
Some Like It Hot
The Wizard of Oz
Gone With the Wind
Rear Window
Charade
An Affair to Remember
Calamity Jane
Brides of Dracula
Breakfast at Tiffany's
The King and I
Dracula
Frankenstein
A Night at the Opera
Citizen Kane
The Philadelphia Story
Penny Serenade
The African Queen
Singing in the Rain
Meet Me in St. Louis
Rope
The Searchers
A Summer Place
Giant
Bringing Up Baby
Splendor in the Grass

I think my favorite entry came from April, who wrote that her favorite pre-1960 movie was either "Psycho or Mary Poppins."

We had five lucky winners this time: Congrats to Shellye N., who won the grand prize of all four DVDs, and to Rozy C., Janel M., Jennifer A. and Sara M., who won one DVD each!

But there's one more week until STARGAZER hits stores, and that means we've got time for STARGAZER Contest #6!

I have now opened up a Zazzle store! Those of you who might be dying for an Evernight mousepad or T-shirt or whatever may now sate those cravings. Within a couple of days, we'll have the store linked to the website.*


make custom gifts at Zazzle

To celebrate, I'll be giving 10 winners one item of their choice from the Zazzle store. What do you have to do to enter? As long as this contest is beginning on St. Patrick's Day, with four-leaf clovers everywhere, just tell me: What's your lucky charm? (If you don't believe in luck, you can just explain that too.) Send your answer to evernightclaudia at gmail dot com, with the subject line "STARGAZER Contest #6." You don't have to decide what you want unless/until you win, but be sure that your entry contains a valid e-mail address I can use to reach you.

* For the record, I'm not exactly planning on making tons of money this way; it's mostly so I can get a mug for myself. I figured I'd offer you guys the option.
