And the Books Go to . . .

My Books for Writers Giveaway contest has closed. Thank you to all who entered. I crossed my fingers and rooted SO HARD for everyone!

No doubt you want me to jump straight to announcing the winning names, but I have to take a moment to say that — holy COW — running the entrant lists through the List Randomizer was downright stressful. I'm definitely going to need some chocolate this afternoon.

But. Back to the contest results:

(1) The lucky recipient of Mary Kole's Writing Irresistible Kidlit is Laurie Thompson!!!

(2) The lucky recipient of Chuck Sambuchino's 2013 Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market is Tricia Lawrence!!!

Congratulations! I'll get in touch with both of you to arrange prize shipment.

Thanks again to participants for commenting on children's books you love. It's always fun to see which ones make other writers' hearts go pitter-patter. The new-to-me titles are going on my to-read list, pronto! (Anyone reading this can find some great book recommendations and writer blogs/sites at the original contest post.)

Okay, I'm publishing now. It took a while to run the randomizer, refrain from snacking, find a suitable (and free) piece of megaphone clipart, and decide whether — according to my blog's established post title style — I needed to capitalize "to."

Blog at you again soon!
