Hero of the Year - 2012

Congrats to Dani and Cole!

In addition to serious bragging rights of having authored the winning hero (out of 178 votes cast over two weeks), Dani will be receiving this framed certificate in a super-cheap yet still awesome document frame we hope will bring her smiles for years to come while she's writing us more FHF-worthy heroes.

If you would like to revisit Cole's hero feature, you may do so here.

If you've not had the good fortune to visit Dani's website and SEE this hero for yourself, go here.

The drawing winner for any book of their choice from those featured in 2012 is... drumroll...

More good news... the first two heroes of 2013 have already been chosen and slotted to appear January 1st and January 15th. You guys are going to LOVE them.

Even more good news... 

If you aren't Dani Pettrey or Lisajdeese, you probably need something to take the sting of disappointment out and that's perfectly natural. So, grab your camera phone and keep reading...


Prize: The FHF Orange Head of Awesome
(yes, there really is such a thing AND it has a $25 Amazon gift-card taped to the bottom.)

Contest: The best orange head photo as selected by me &
Eric Templeton.

Be creative! Have your kid draw it on the driveway in sidewalk chalk. Draw it in the snow with orange Jello-packets. Paint your husband's face orange and use colored hair-spray!

E-mail the picture to fictionherofeatures (at)
As they come in I will be uploading them to the new
Orange Heads Everywhere page.
A winner will be chosen and announced the day after Christmas.

Vote Now for the 2012 Hero of the Year

This has been a year of firsts for FHF. The response from readers and authors has been overwhelming and I'm so grateful to you all for allowing me to share my passion for great heroes in this very unique way. I'd like to close 2012 with what will likely become a tradition by selecting a hero of the year from among those featured.

The hero receiving the most votes will be announced in the December 15th post as the Fiction Hero Features 2012 Hero of the Year,  along with some not-to-be-missed giveaways. That winning hero's author will receive a framed certificate together with some pretty serious bragging rights.

Without its amazing fans and supporters, FHF would just be another blog out there in cyberspace. I've had the privilege of getting to know quite a few of you but I'd like to get to know even more about my fellow hero-addicts. After you vote, please leave a comment with the most important thing I should know about you. On December 14th, I'll draw from all the comments and that winner will receive the book of their choice from any hero featured this year. Winner will be announced together with the FHF Hero of the Year on December 15th. Authors of featured heroes are eligible. As always, if you are not a blog follower with your e-mail address in your profile, please leave your e-mail address in an anti-spammer format like (at) FHF2012 (dotcom)
