First I want to give a major shout-out to the girls from my Street Team (Lavati's Little Helpers) for being so amazing and coming up with the contest. Mercedes had the idea, and we ran with it. I've had a blast getting to see the entries and celebrating all month long. If you liked the contest and would like more like it, comment so we know to host more. Thank you to all the help I received when running this all month. You're all goddesses and gods. ;)
Here's how we chose the winners. We took into consideration likes from the initial post thread. I wrote down how many likes each post had and used that list at the end. In our street team group, we looked at all of them and voted on our top threes. I took all the information and put it together. Then I just took which had the most votes and that became our first, and so on. I checked it with the likes (it ended up being pretty spot on to the ones we picked) and that's it.
Initially we were going to have one winner but because so many people entered, we made it into a top three!
I also want to mention that this wasn't based on skill or how well you can draw. We were really looking for things people took time to make/create/share. Originality was big, too. So, that's how we did it! Let's get to the winners....
Our first place winner was done by Nathalie Raven! This was submitted via facebook. First place prizes include a $20 Amazon gift-card, a custom "I conquered Taylor Lavati's Art Contest" t-shirt, a signed paperback by Taylor Lavati, Taylor Lavati swag, and a bracelet donated by MouseyBooks.com.
Our second place winner is Tonie Ervin with Zombie Rocks. This was submitted via facebook. Second place prizes include a custom "I conquered Taylor Lavati's Art Contest" t-shirt, a signed paperback by Taylor Lavati, and Taylor Lavati swag.
Our third place winner is Esme Parker. Check out the story that goes with the picture: This is a new report of a Zombie breakout in the world of the Anthro/Furry world it may show one zombie in it but that's because the tape is still rolling yet the reporter has died and the highways are closed

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
