The winner from Friday's story is Carol G. Please contact Caridad for your prize.
The answer for my question from the Moonlight Midwifery story is actually the Moon. The moon in this story represents the maiden's council because it is her power, widsom, and source of creativity. However, if you dig deeper, then I believe you have to consider that the moon or her blood is really a symbol, a manifestation of her. So in this case, Amanda is the winner. Please email me at email@example.com so I can get your address and send you an autographed copy of Rogelia's House of Magic on June 10.
