And so many of you guys had way more than one entry.
There were over 600 total entries (points). SIX HUNDRED. Holy huge.
Did I already say phew? Because, um PHEW!
*wipes sweat from brow from all the heavy counting*
So I tallied everyone's entries and then assigned each entry a number.
Which is why I know there were more than 600.
627 to be exact.
Then I used the true random number generator at random.org to pick the five winners. And you know what's REALLY cool? Each winner got either their first or second choice!
There's something else you want me to write about?
Ooooooooh! That's right!
Alright, enough anticipation yet??
Without further ado...
Unless... I mean... Do you want further ado?
Are you sure?
In that case, I'm super happy to announce the following winners!!
WINNER: Jill of the O.W.LPrize Package A: SIGNED copy of Fragile Eternity and The WD Guide to Query Letters
WINNER: Erika RobuckPrize Package B: SIGNED copy of The Queen's Dollmaker and The Help by Kathryn Stockett
WINNER: Abby AnnisPrize Package C: The Everafter and 2010 Novel & Short Story Writer's Market
WINNER: Valerie (I Should Be Writing)Prize Package D: LJ Smith's Vampire Diaries Series (Books 1-4 AND The Return: Volume 1)
WINNER: C.J. RedwinePrize Package E: OPI Alice in Wonderland Giftset, Vera Bradley ID holder, and OPI Mad as a Hatter (regular sized bottle)
Note from Sara: A few of you may have noticed CJ's pressure on me via twitter to win this prize. I did NOT buckle under the pressure! Even when she threatened me with her spork of doom, I refused to give in. However, CJ must have some sort of weird ninja voodoo power over lucky numbers because hers was randomly selected.
I have ONE. MORE. THING. to share:
You know how sometimes you enter a contest and you want to win it SO bad? So you pull in as many points as you can? And then the time comes and you didn't win? I always believe the person who had the most entries totally deserves something, even if they weren't selected for one of the prizes. And because of this, there's one more winner!!
Thanks so much to everyone who participated! And a huge congratulations to all of the winners! Please send me an email with your mailing addresses--I'll get everything in the mail this week, I promise!!
