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 blog was just over 5 months old, and I had 220 followers. After the 2.5 weeks of my contest, I now have 262 followers!! There were 47 people** that entered the giveaway for a total of 193 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.
I did not make my goal of 300 followers, but I know it will come soon. Since I did not reach 300, the $10 online bookstore gift card is not part of this contest. However, I will have a drawing for the $10 gift card once I reach 300 followers, and all of you that entered this contest will get a bonus entry for that drawing.
NOW… for the winners…
Each person received a set number of entries based on the entry criteria. In addition, there was an opportunity for bonus entries as outlined in my July 14, 2010 post. This gave each contestant anywhere from 1 to 16 entries. I numbered the entries from 1 to 193 and used random.org to general 2 random numbers for the drawing. After, I matched the numbers to the names and I get…
Winner #1 Prize: Bonds of Justice by Nalini Singh
Winner #2 Prize: Demon Blood by Meljean Brook
WINNERS: you have until 12:00 NOON EDT on Sunday July 25, 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!
** Please note: I had to disqualify a few people because they are not followers of my blog. The rules stated that in order to enter you MUST be a follower of my blog.
