Giveaways and Stuff and Things

Last week, I gave away a couple of hardback books to lucky people who were really paying attention on Twitter. ;)

In one case (Just One Day - Gayle Forman), an extra-sweet friend attended a book signing. Knowing what a huge Gayle Forman fan I am, she bought a second copy of the book and got Gayle to sign it for me! (Thank you Heather Self! I'm buying you lunch next time I'm in Austin!) That left me with an extra copy of a wonderful book, so I decided to give my original (unsigned) copy away.

In the second case (Dare You To - Katie McGarry), I'd ordered the book online... but before I received it, I just happened to be at Barnes & Noble... and instant gratification won out. When my copy arrived from Amazon a day later, I had another extra copy of a great book.

Those two were mailed out Saturday - one to California and the other to Mexico. Fingers crossed that they both arrive safely!

Meanwhile, my Easy-on-CD giveaway ended last night. I've emailed the winner (Crystal Y.), who hasn't emailed back yet, and the twenty winners of signed bookplates (each of you will receive two signed Easy bookplates - one of each design).

Everyone has 48 hours to email me back before I pick another random winner!

Thanks to everyone who entered!
