The results of my book contest are in!
It was so much fun to tally up the entries of each participant - I was amazed at how many people helped out! Thank you so much to those of you who did so. Remember that if you didn't win, I'm going to be doing more book giveaways in the future. :-)
There are four winners: two first placers, one second, and one third. One of the first place winners was chosen by the amount of time/effort/entries put in, and the other was chosen randomly. My dad ran a script on Linux which randomly pulled the names "out of a hat." You can never go wrong with Linux. :-)
And now, the moment we've all been waiting for! The winners of this month's Spread-the-Word Book Contest and Giveaway are. . .
First Place (Winner who did the most work): Sarah Elizabeth
First Place (Randomly Chosen): Elizabeth Fansler
Second Place: Kim Stilson Lee
Third Place: Tyler Ficiur
Congratulations to Sarah, Elizabeth, Kim, and Tyler! If the four of you would please contact me as soon as possible, that would be great. :-) The first place winners will be given the first choice in prizes, the second place winner will go next, followed by the third place winner. Go here (to the old post about the contest) to see what the prizes are. Oh, and there wasn't a last name attached to Sarah Elizabeth's entry, but the first part of the email address it came from is eliza_beth. Winners, please contact me as soon as you can! (Send me an email: ap AT andreapearsonbooks DOT com - replace the AT with @ and the DOT with .)
Again, thank you to everyone who participated, and keep checking back for more contests! :-)
