I'm sorry for the delay on getting out the winners to my giveaway. Yesterday was so busy for me, I had to neglect the blogosphere... much to my chagrin. :(
We had a blast on Wednesday with the kids' first trip to NYC. It rained the whole time and flights were delayed so it was a bit stressful, too. Completely worth it, but exhausting.
Yesterday was spent playing catch up. And, as if Wednesday wasn't awesome enough, I found out I won two contests for a 30-page critique of my NaNo project from lit agent Sara Megibow of Nelson Lit! How fantastic is that?? It seems I won Roni Loren's contest as well as Ashley March's contest. That is so unlike me! I'm never this lucky!!! *huge grins*
But I'll take it and run! If you don't already follow Roni's and Ashley's blog, click on over and make it a point to. They're both represented by the ever impressive Sara Megibow and I promise you'll get some great advice on writing from both of them.
So back to MY winners! YAY! I had so much fun with My Favorite Things Giveaway. Most of the prizes were donated to me. My airline colleague makes the soap and runs her own herbal soap business, the Out of Print tee clothing company donates books to children in Africa for every tee bought ... great shirts and a great cause!
I went old-school and literally tallied up each entry and put names in a bucket. I swished them around, stirred, tossed. I fondeled each of the contestants names on little tabs of paper ... lol. No high tech random selectors for this girl ... There's just something so exciting about physically drawing a name. ;)
Anyway ... the winners are:
Starbucks gift card: Debbie Curran
Choice of 2 handmade soaps from Natural Mystic: Marissa Farrar
The Secret Year YA novel by jennifer R. Hubbard: Susan K. Quinn
The One I Want women's fiction by Allison Winn Scotch: Nas Dean
HP Deathly Hallows soundtrack: Oddyoddyo13
Choice of Out of Print tee: Carla
WOW! Equal new and old followers for winners! What are the odds??? I promise it was completely random.
Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated. Winners, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get your address and/or make arrangements with you for your prize. :)
