First of all, I want to thank every single one of you that follows my blog, entered the contest, re-tweeted my endless blog-pimping tweets and supported me in this journey. When I started my contest my little blog was 3 months old. I had just over 60 followers for my blog. After the 3 plus weeks of my contest, I now have 155 followers!! There were 71 people that entered the giveaway for a total of 293 entries!! You all rock and I appreciate it so very much. I plan on continuing my blog, making it better and am open to topic suggestions and books to review. In fact, my next giveaway is already planned (hint: see right sidebar!)
I would like to give a special thank you to Ivy from the Book Reader Times Forum. She was my initial inspiration and mentor for this contest. She also has generously donated a wonderful prize that includes:
1.) The Chosen Sin by Anya Bast
2.) The World On Blood by Jonathan Nasaw
3.) Book Light
4.) Book Mark
I would also like to thank JoJo from JoJo’s Book Corner for encouraging me to reach beyond my expectations and also donating a book as a prize.
NOW… for the winners…
Each person received a set number of entries based on the entry criteria. I also handed out some bonus entries as outlined in my May 12, 2010 post. This gave each contestant anywhere from 1 to 13 entries. I numbered the entries from 1 to 293 and used random.org to general 4 random numbers for the drawing. After, I matched the numbers to the names and I get…
Winner #1 Prize: Riding the Storm by Sydney Croft (mailed from Book Depository*)
Stella (Ex Libris)
Winner #2 Prize: Atlantis Redeemed by Alyssa Day (mailed from Book Depository*)
Winner #3 Prize: Lover Mine by JR Ward (from JoJo mailed from Book Depository*)
Winner #4 Prize: Book Lover’s Surprise (from Book Reader Times)
WINNERS: you have until 12:00 NOON EDT on Thursday May 20, 2010 to email me your mailing addresses for the prizes. If I do not hear from you by then, I will draw a new winner. Email me at twimom227 (at) gmail (dot) com.
Once again, thank you so much! I look forward to future discussions, posts and giveaways!
