And the Winners Are . . .


Everyone's generous spirit during the holidays inspired me!

Twenty-four comments came in before the deadline, so I will be donating one autographed copy of my novel to the Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition.

While all fifty states weren't represented in the comments, 22 states and two countries were: CA, PA, FL, MD, IL, WI, TX, MO, KY, CT, OR, MI, VA, AL, GA, NY, OH, MS, ID, TN, NH, MA, Canada and Ireland!

Everyone's name was written on a slip of paper and thrown into a hat.

Our dog, Lady, inspected the slips of paper to make sure everything was on the up and up. It was.

Then our cat, Jasmine, walked by and with indifference.

Finally, our celebrity judge -- MY DAD -- who is visiting from New Jersey, limbered up his fingers and pulled out the winners.

Dad was obviously having way too much fun being a celebrity judge.

The two winners are DDurance (Deirdre) and Kim Kasch. Deirdre and Kim, please e-mail me at dgep (at) hotmail (dot) com and let me know to whom you'd like the autograph as well as your mailing address.

Congratulations to our winners. Thank you to our celebrity judge. And happiest and healthiest of holidays to YOU, dear blog reader!

Wishing you much joy and peace this holiday season,

Good job, celebrity judge, Dad!

Thanks, Danette,

I was just thinking about you. Will I see you at the conference in Miami?

Hope so,

Danette Haworth said...

Yes, I'll be there (without the hat)!

I know. I know. You'll be wearing a clown hat instead, right?

Kimbra Kasch said...

YIPEE!!! So excited to be a winner. You can send it to Serena Russum, who is my niece at kasch5 at comcast dot net.

I tried to email you but the email shot back as undeliverable.

Thanks so much.
