Today between 2 and 4 PM EST we hosted a live event on Twitter and Facebook, in which we announced the four jury-selected wildcard nominees.
The wildcard nominees are:
Thank you to our jury members for their tireless work over the past few days. We made their lives difficult because we wanted every participant in #ANA2012 to have a fair chance at getting a nomination by having their story read. Big thanks to Autumn Stephens, Chauncey Mabe, Sandy Diaz, and Peter McCarthy!
We also announced that a surprise bonus wildcard nomination would be revealed tomorrow along with the Round #8 nominee. This will be an author who did an amazing job promoting their story and was consistently near the top of the Author Ranking week after week.
Congratulations to all nominees!
