The spoils of war & why it's still a victory

So Alex lost her battle against Katniss in the YA Sisterhood Heroine Tourney but I'm okay with it.  I will always be team Alex.  She is an awesome heroine who has only been around for a short time.  To have so many people support her was so exciting.  I had the great honor of talking to lots of peeps about her.  So many want to read the book now.  Others got to know Katy & Daemon from Obsidian and want to read that book.  That's what's important and fun about the tourney.  It's our passion for the characters of the books we love that makes the tourney fun.  Oh and the spoils of war.  We may not have won this battle but we did have the BEST spoils.  Check out all the wonderful things Jennifer gave the Half Blood Legion!

And finally, despite the lose JLA gave us the win incentive of 

Seems like a pretty nice victory to me!  Thanks JLA.

  1. You're so right, Valerie! It definitely has been a victory and the fact that the tourney has exposed the series to so many readers is just great. You and Momo did a fabulous job supporting Alex! And even though she technically lost, she really didn't. :)

  2. Congrats to Amy!

    And Val, I can't thank you enough! You supported Alex to your fullest and I heart you for that!

  3. Yay!! Thanks Valerie!! Thanks Momo! This tourney has been so awesome and you both put your all into it. ALex is truly an amazing heroione and I am solidly team Alex no matter what. Just imagine how much more bad@$$ she will be when she has been around for a little while longer!
