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!
That is so funny!!! I love when things work out like that, gives you a nice chuckle!!! You then really begin to wonder if things really are random!!!
Congratulations to the winner!!! *hides jealousy*
I've been crazy busy and haven't been around lately, but I wanted to drop by to say (1) even if you don't hear from me, I'm thinking of ya, & (2) LOVE THE NEW BLOG DESIGN!
Typical, I come back off holiday and you have a fab new design! heehee.
Congratulations to the winner. Like Jen, I am all kinds of jealous too.
That's so cute! Hahaha!
Funny! I guess we know who your number one fan is. Just keep him away from the family sledgehammer. ;)
Congrats to the winner!
Aw,man! I can't believe I missed a contest for an ARC!!!! Boo!
My computer had virus, and I was limited to my iPod Touch for internet access...
Lol, what are the odds of your husband winning? So weird!
CONGRATS, JL!! You lucky duck, you :)
Jealous, but as long as I can get my copy of Bad Taste autographed I will be happy. :)
COngrats, JL. I'm gonna keep trying, I must have one of the arcs!!!!
Didn't I tell you that Randomizer.org hates me? ;)
Congrats to the winner, though!!! =D
I've been away on vacation, I come back and your new blog looks mahvelous, darling!
Carrie! I just checked out everything on your new site! Love love love it!!! Congrats!!!
That's almost as bad as when Natalie (Whipple) drew her own name :)
*Patiently awaiting next drawing! :D
I have such boring initials. My sister Betsy's last name starts with an "S." Obviously, I need a nickname with the right initials. Now to decide what and how to go about acquiring it.
Welcome Slayer. We look forward to your induction ceremony.
