Final Blogtoberfest winners!

By the end of this blog post, there will be three happy people, one of them much happier than the others (if happiness can be measured in books, which I think it can).

The winner of a signed Advance Review Copy of Shade (the FIRST Advance Review Copy, I might add) is...Leah! Leah, I don't have a way to contact you, so please send your mailing address to me in the next week. The ARC will go out later this month as soon as it gets into my grubby little hands.

The winner of their choice of a signed copy of Rachel Vincent's My Soul to Take or My Soul to Save is...Belly!

AND NOW...

THE WINNER OF THE GRAND PRIZE...

WHICH IS...

A COPY OF ALL 25 BOOKS GIVEN AWAY DURING BLOGTOBERFEST...

WHICH IS...

A REALLY COOL PRIZE...

IS...

First of all, I'd like to take a moment to thank all the--just kidding! The winner is emmad. Please send me your mailing address within the next week so I can put in the order for all those sweet books!

OK, now I'll take a moment to once again thank all the participants who were so generous with their time and books. Some of them didn't even know me personally, but they were willing to help make this a great party. I know from experience that writing a good guest blog post can take several hours and sometimes a considerable amount of hair-pulling when the first few drafts come out lame. Or maybe that's just me.

And thanks to everyone who came to the party! I hope many of you will stick around and see what kind of stuff I babble about on a daily basis. Mostly books, often food or music, and sometimes cats and dogs.

Have a great week, and congrats again to all the winners!

Congratulations winners. And emmad must be super-happy today!

Congratulations everyone! I didn't win so I guess that means I have to start buying the books now :-) I caved and already read two of them.
BTW - I won the ARC of Alexandra Diaz's "Of All The Stupid Things" and it was a beautiful story so look for it when it comes out in December.
Thanks Jeri!

I haven't heard from either Leah or emmad, so if they don't respond in a week I'll draw another name. So don't give up hope yet!

Karen, I'm glad you enjoyed OF ALL THE STUPID THINGS. I'm sure Alexandra would love to hear that, too. :-)

Just saw the cover for Shade. Love it! And the prequel was great, too. Can't wait for the book.
