GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT and MY 1,000 POST!

The drawing for the book giveaway will be tomorrow morning, my birthday and the 1,001st post of this blog!

I've already picked one winner from each day from the list via Random.org. Those winners will be tossed into a bowl and chosen via video for you to view. Some of your names have been chosen TWICE which is what I had planned all along, saying that if you entered daily that would amp your chances to win! So it worked!

We're going to choose two winners for all of the books. Just so you know, there may be a few books that were offered throughout the month that may not be in the final giveaway, but that will be discussed with the grand prize winners. Either way, I'm sure the winners will be thrilled with what they receive -- I hope so anyway!

Stay tuned, and thanks again for playing along! And don't forget, there will be more to come!

I think I'm confused. So only those who have already won a book are eligible for the grand prize?

This was posted at the end of February...

"*** TO BE CLEAR: Come back and read about each book every day in March. Choose the books you'd like to win. Enter for any or ALL the books. Each entry will count as an entry toward the grand prize of winning ALL 31+ books at the end of the month. You can win the book of the day and still qualify to win ALL the books at the end of the month!"

My apologies, but am I wrong to assume that this meant every time I posted for the daily giveaway, it was an entry for the big giveaway? Am I missing something? If I am, in fact, wrong, that really bums me out that I thought I still had a chance after entering nearly every day. I didn't realize the grand prize was only a giveaway for only past winners.

Can't wait! What a cool giveaway. At least for us book nerds, anyway :)

Wanda Z said...

Hoping to win but also want to thank you for posting about all of these books. I'm always looking for new books and new authors!

Laura Kay said...

LynnBelo~

no, what she did was have a name from everyday chosen of those who entered but didn't win and some did (random), so one person from everyday and today she will pick out of those names for the grandprize, so you still have a chande :)
