200 GIVEAWAY WINNERS: And A Cruller



Inconceivable! The turnout for this giveaway was huge! And it's all thanks to you guys. I'd like to thank you all in advance for participating and spreading the word. All the names are in. Witch Song was the most popular in the bunch, too. As you can see in the above picture, I've drawn three names from three different piles. Now all I have to do is open them and announce the winners (the sweet-looking sword isn't part of the deal)!


Instead of outright telling you who the winners are this time around, click on these covers. You will then be whisked away to an awesome blog. Whoever owns said blog is the lucky winner of that book (I'm a shameless traffic increaser).

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU THREE!

 
Send me an email with the address that you'd like me to send your book to (it doesn't have to be your address).

If I could give you all a book, I would. But don't panic! My offer for a query or 250 word critique is still open for anyone who wants one. The offer stands until the 7th (for those of you who already sent stuff, I'll work on it now). Find my email here and send me what you got!

Again, thank you all for participating! I look forward to hosting another giveaway when we reach 400.

Oh! And before you leave, enjoy your virtual cruller!

Yum!

I'm David, and where are my postage stamps?

  6. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks for the cruller - which I have never heard of - except for once when Xander mentioned one in 'Buffy' and I had no idea what he was talking about :-)

  18. Very clever blog and I love the MAIL. I wonder how much it costs to send that and the sword to New Jersey?
