I did things the way I usually do. I got out my list of entries, opened up Random.org, and had it pick a number. And when I got to the eventual winner, I had to laugh. A couple of weeks back, I asked my husband, aka Slayer of Bees, to sign up for my newsletter to make sure that it worked. He did, because he likes me, and because it'll keep me from abbreviating his nickname to SoB. (BTW, that abbreviation was UNINTENTIONAL. That's my story, and I'm sticking by it.)
Guess who won the ARC and the poster? My husband. Sorry, honey, but you can't have it. But as requested, I'm inducting you into the Semi Secret Order of the Blog Ninja instead, for all those ideas you give me for both blog and books, even if 75% of them are unusable due to perviness.
So I did the unthinkable. I chucked the name of the first winner and tried again. And without further ado, the REAL winner of my very first ARC (when it shows up) and the poster print of my webpage is...
Congrats, JL! Why don't you drop me an email at carrie (at) carrieharrisbooks (dot) com, and we'll make arrangements to get your prizes to you!
And to everyone else, I hope to be able to give out a couple more ARCs when they show up, but of course it all depends on how many I get. I'll keep you posted!
