Friday’s Fun Find: A Positively Swell Winner!

ImageI laughed when Mr. Randomizer (over at Random.Org) spat out the name for the Booooook Giveaway. And not because the winner is funny (She is, actually, very funny!) or even because she’s funny-looking (She’s not too funny-looking. I mean, um…she’s not funny-looking at all.)

I laughed because she has more than a couple kids who’ll enjoy reading Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Think Positive for Kids. And that she’ll read it, too, because she’s a writer who’s always reading to get a leg up on a market. But mostly, I laughed because of ALL the names in the comments, from places ALL over this wonderful world, the winner lives down the road from me. And now, I don’t have to pay any postage.

Wheeeeeee! I just love Fun Fridays!

(If your name is not Debra Mayhew, then you might want to check out Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Think Positive for Kids here. It’s really a fun read, but more than that, it’ll positively make the kid in your life’s day!)


And The Winner Is…

ImageI used my friendly, internet-neighborhood random generator to pick a name from those who commented on Trisha Slay’s novel, Not So Long Ago, Not So Far Away.

And though some of you clearly understand the whole Han Solo thing more than others, the generator was apparently immune to those charms and spat out…

Linda O’Connell!

Good news: Linda will probably loan Not So Long Ago, Not So Far Away to friends who are, in fact, not so far away.

Bad news: The rest of you are too far away for a loaner.

Good news: The book is available at your favorite bookseller!Thanks to all who stopped by to comment, and it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway), “May the Force (of good writing and reading) be with you.”

Sharing the Love Winner

ImageThe winner of the Cleopatra’s Moon giveaway is…Donna!

It will soon be winging its way to Missouri, complete with a personal inscription from author, Vicky Alvear Shecter.

And for those who didn’t win, you might want to pick up the newly released paperback of Cleopatra’s Moon at your local bookstore.

But you know you’re all winners to me, right? (Happy writing!)
