They changed it to "in October" (maybe in an email?) so they still have a few more days.

 The winners of this contest were supposed to be announced on their website "on or about" October 1, but as of today (10/24) the most recent post on their site is dated 4/13, and it just announces a new contest.
Anyone know anything about this outfit? The contest was  on this Blueboard in January, so I assumed they're legit, but now I'm wondering ...

Thank you both!  Vijaya the example was definitely helpful.  I think I have her all formatted and ready to put on the critique board.  I appreciate your time!

Check out Ev's website for some of the companies that have phonics programs: http://evelynchristensen.com/markets.html 
Perfection Learning, Capstone, Houghton Mifflin, Harper Collins all have series of books for early readers who are just getting introduced to sounds. Also check your library to see who else is publishing these kinds of books and go for it. Good luck!

I just want to say Hi and Thank You to everyone here! I am a new SCWBI member and you have given me the courage to call myself a writer!
My story is ready to go out into the world and so I'm concentrating my efforts on learning everything I can to get that done! (Not a small task! :faint)
I would not have thought of a website, but after reading your advice, I went for it! It will just be a homepage for now, but hopefully there will be a Books tab soon!
It really feels great to be a part of a community!
 :thankyou
