Winner Winner Chicken Dinner =)

Okay, so it's not often that I pat myself on the back, but... um...

*pats self on back*

Why am I patting myself on the back? Well, you see, it's because I SAVED the day for the winners of the Barry Lyga contest!!

Here's how it all went down:

First, Alexandra decides that she doesn't WANT to announce the winners. Why? Um, because she wanted to keep all the goods for herself.

THEN, Carol jumps on that bandwagon and says we should announce FAKE winners, like names of people who didn't even enter/don't even exist. Why? Same reason. I mean, you've all seen how hard it is for her to giveaway books: Le Example

I mean, okay. I have to admit: I was kinda tempted. I mean, Barry's books are SO freaking good. But, no. I thought of all you entrants and how we'd given our word about giving away the awesome books we had to give. And yeah, it's gonna be hard to part with them, but still. We need to do it.

So I convinced A & C that it was time to say goodbye. I explained that while I understood their reluctance, it was the Right Thing To Do.

Carol offered me one of her kidneys*.

Alexandra threatened to give me noogies**.

But I held strong and, in the end, they conceded. PHEW!

So, my dear winners: you're welcome =)

And without further ado...
The winners of the SIGNED Hero-Types are: Jenny Martin and Niki!

The winner of the ARC of Goth Girl Rising is: Karen Amanda Hooper!

The winner of the SIGNED Archvillain ARC is: Julie Musil!

The winner of Boy Toy is: Taffy Lovell!

Congratulations guys!! Make sure to send Alexandra, Carol, or me an email with your mailing address and we'll get your prizes right out to you!!

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in Barry Lyga Rocks!! Day! I know he appreciated it, he even left a facebook status up about it =)

*okay, so it was a kidney bean...
**had she threatened a swirly, I probably would have caved.

  1. Woo hooooo!!!! Barry can sleep easy tonight knowing that I won't have to stalk him to get a book. What happens after I finish Goth Girl is out of my control. ;)

    Yay! Thanks for the rockin' contest. :)
