Final Blogtoberfest & SHADE winner - You snooze, you lose edition

A couple weeks ago, I announced winners for two of the final Blogtoberfest prizes, an ARC of Shade and the grand mega-normous-zilla prize, a copy of every book in the Blogtoberfest (or more precisely, one book by each author, since one author gave away five books).

Sadly, the winners did not respond, so in accordance with the prophecy rules, I drew two more names.

The winner of an Advance Review Copy of Shade is...Lori! And the new lucky winner of the grand prize is...Cindy, aka I Heart Book Gossip!

Thanks AGAIN to the 25 participating authors, and the guests who left over 1,200 comments throughout the month.

Tonight I'm attending the Authors & Editors Reception put on by the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America at Planet Hollywood in NYC. Then tomorrow morning I go to Rockefeller Center to meet with some wonderful folks from Simon Pulse to talk about plans for Shade. I'm a little nervous, but mostly excited--I've never had an official meeting with anyone besides my editors and agent, so I feel pretty lucky.

Cross your fingers I don't make a fool out of myself!

Congrats new winners!

If they don't accept the prizes, I will Jeri! ;)

Jessica, I've already heard from both of them, so Blogtoberfest is finally over for real now. Sorry! :-)
