Ragweed Humor Book Contest Winners Announced

Ingomar, Montana, March 29, 2016 – We have our winners for the Ragweed Humor Book Contest!!!!

Wahoooooo and congratulations to our wonderful winners: Gwen Petersen, our Grand Prize Winner, and Aimee and (father) James Dziadulewicz, our First Place Picture Book winners. We were looking for a fun book, that made us laugh, and we got it.

Gwen Petersen is a remarkable person and author, and we highly advise you get a copy of her grand prize-winning, “Older Than Dirt – The Musical,” and keep in touch with her Gwen Petersen gets a $100 Amazon card, as the Grand Prize Winner, and both winners are getting a copy of Linda Lou Crosby’s award-winning book “Adventures with Ragweed,” and $ell More eBook$, by Lucinda Sue Crosby and Laura Dobbins. Gwen’s advice for those who want to write humor books is, “Watch comedians, read humor. Figure out the difference between clever, intelligent wit and stupid, tasteless garbage. Listen to stories around you. Avoid associating with Debbie Downer folk. Do not put up with woe-is-me cling-on folk. Listen to music. Have lunch often with those who love to laugh. Ride your horse till you’re too stove-up to climb in the saddle.” ’nuff said. If you would like to see Gwen performing in the near future, she is “…doing poetry at the annual Hell’s-A-Roarin’ Horse Drive in May. Go online to Hell’s-A-Roarin’ Horse Drive and learn all about it.” Sounds fun to us Gwen!

Our whimsical, beautiful, intriguing Picture Book Winner, is, “1000 Eggs – A Mystery Adventure.” It is a father/daughter creation, with wonderful artistry, and a captivating story. Find out more about James (Jim) by emailing him at, or visit his website at How did the 1000 Eggs book come to be? According to Jim, “When Aimee was six years old she was watching me do computer animation.   She is creative and asked me if I could make anything she could imagine on the computer. I said, ‘Yep pretty much.’  Aimee was making her own little story books at the time with drawings.  Faye my youngest does the same thing now. I told Aimee if you write a story I will make the pictures and creatures you describe to me.  Then we will print a few nice copies.  Aimee wrote the basic story, over 1000 words, and I made one image.  It was an image of the Snorchel creature that Aimee described to me.  But … the story was hidden in my desk for several years.” In 2014, Jim turned towards the story again. “I really got into it. Since I worked in Hollywood for a good spell and spent many hours watching the newest 3D Disney movies, I wanted to do something different than all these movies.” Well, we are sure glad it is out there for readers world wide. A great effort for father and daughter.
