Thank you to everybody who participated in the King of Paine blog tour and entered my Kindle Giveaway Contest. My blog hosts were terrific, as evidenced by the excellent reviews, interviews and guest posts now populating the widgets in the right sidebar of this site. They do it all for the love of books and the joy of discovering new authors who inspire and enlighten them. Each blog reflects the personality and preferences of its host, but they are all beautifully crafted and fun to browse. I hope you’ll visit them often in your quest to find intriguing reads.
I’d also like to thank two fans who have read King of Paine and been inspired to comment enthusiastically at every stop on the blog tour. Lori M. and Suzie W. are the type of fans every author dreams about–so connected to the book that they are moved to shout about it from the rooftops (or their digital equivalent). They make all the hard work of creating a novel worthwhile.
I wish I could send Kindles and gift cards to everybody, but economic reality being what it is, that’s just not practical. The contest winners were chosen randomly (numbers were assigned and drawn at random.org) from almost 2,000 entries (per contest rules, multiple entries were awarded for specified promotional activities).
Grand Prize (Kindle Touch 3G): Leslie Wright
$25 Amazon Gift Card: Vanessa Booke
$10 Amazon Gift Card: Darlene Goodman
$5 Amazon Gift Card: Stacey Donaldson
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all for helping promote King of Paine. I hope you will take a look at some of the fabulous reviews the book has received and continue to spread the word.
