The Story is About + TIME

Thank You Contest: RESULTS!

This was by far one of the biggest contests I’ve ever had! I had over 140 some entries and then, on top of that will all the extra entries added in I have over 300... it’s been a very long morning, to say the least.

Can I just say that it is really hard for me to give away my books... is that weird? But I know that they are going to good homes and will actually get some reading out of them, instead of sitting on my shelf.

I did the same drawing system as last time...

Here’s how it worked out. I drew one name from everyone that entered. That person got their top four choices. We’ll say that person was the grand prize winner. Then I picked two more winners for the runner up prize which consists of four books of their choice, their top choices and possibly their alternates. Then I was able to draw four winners of three books each. It was a lot easier this time, since I had alternate choices. After that it got a little difficult, but I was finally able to draw two winners whose still had book choices remaining! Got it... ?

So if you’re still reading after all that, I’m assuming you just want to know who won, here ya go:
