We Have Winners!
Or...there's a lot to announce

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who participated in the contests we've run here. We'll have more, of course!

Our winner in the dragon story-telling contest from October is Deidre Durance. Now, let me just state that I'm overly thrilled with her name, but her name had nothing to do with her win. (Unless there was some sort of mojo created when I put the strips of paper in the Duran Duran tour cap...as in the cap offered up the familiar name...) Anyway! Deidre wins an eBook of A Chance to Say Yes from Romance Author Tina Murray, an eBook of What Choices We Made from Fantasy Author Sandy Lender, and a free subscription to the online newsletter Recession Rescue from Laura Crawford. Yay Deidre!!

Our winner in the Word of the Day contest from October is...drum-roll...familiar name...Deidre Durance! Yes, you ARE allowed to stuff the ballot box in this game. Deidre's persistence paid off and her almost daily participation in the contest gets her the fabuloso prize of the eBook copy of Choices Meant for Gods and, if she really wants a second copy, another eBook copy of What Choices We Made.

The sad thing is that she has to wait to receive What Choices We Made because...wait for it...the release has been delayed. (Familiar concept around here these days, isn't it?) But I have reviewers who say the wait will be worth it. ;)

Our third contest took place yesterday and was held in conjunction with Author Island. Folks from the Island who checked out Today the Dragon Wins could enter the contest to win a hard cover edition of Choices Meant for Gods and that oh-so-lucky winner is Keatonkat! DeNita, the hostess from Author Island, is looking up the demographics so I can connect with Keatonkat, but, in the meantime, everybody join me in saying congrats.

So thank you to everybody who joined in the fun and don't stay away for long. I'm going to announce a couple more contests here later this week. I'm appearing at BrendaWilliamsonsRomanceParty Thursday and will have something fun in conjunction with that. And DeNita and I will cook up something to celebrate the release of What Choices We Made later this month. It's just all about giving stuff away, you know. :)

Have a great Tuesday!
Congratulations to Deidre and Keatonkat!
"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."

Sandy,
I have the book in my hand today! Can't wait to delve into it. I totally understand and bear no hard feelings for the delay - health comes first!

About reviews - are you familiar with www.nightowlromance.com? Talk to Tammie about getting reviews done - there's a gang of us over there who love great books! Ask nice and I'll even tell you which reviewer I am :)

Thanks so much for the great addition to my library!
