And the Winner is…Missy and Chelsea!

Without further adieu, the winner of the Fall 500 Dollar Battle of the Bands: Missy and Chelsea!:

As in the Spring, it was a tight contest. Missy and Chelsea will receive a check for 500 dollars. Both Pound and Bee in the Bonnet will also be receiving prizes to be named as thanks for their great submissions and support. Today we wrap up our first calender year since resuming publication, and what an amazing year it was:

Emily Sophia Van Binsbergen, James Morrow and Chris Davis worked with us on the relaunch, Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands and Floozzie Shooz took the honors in our first 500 Dollar Battle of the Bands, novelists RB Wood, Leah Petersen and Tim Queeney gave us great interviews, HARAH Designs provided our first fashion profile, Michele Kishita and Dennis Young shared their spectacular artwork, DJ Konai shared his take on the music industry, and Kathy Freeman, Reverence, Pound and Bee in the Bonnet gave us high- end music submissions.

And now, a special shout-out to Bill Madison, for both his amazing material and the introductions he made for us: One Song World and, as a result, Indie Bible. As a result of our Indie Bible listing, we have a five month log of submissions (but keep them coming, we will get to you!). Thanks Bill!

Here’s to great and successful 2013 for all of us – drunkenmermaid.com.

Happy Holidays from drunkenmermaid.com!
