Before I announce the winner, I have to say that this contest did not go as I had expected it to (as much in my life seems to work!) I truly thought the giveaway would garner a much bigger response than it did. I saw a lot of buzz about it on the major social networking sites, but only received ten entries. That blew my mind. But I’m sure those ten thank everyone else for boosting their chances.
I had said my grandson would be choosing the winner based solely on their gravatar. He is 5, and what I didn’t say was that if there was anyone out there using a Mario gravatar, they would have won, hands down.
But, no Marios.
The winner of the first edition of Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi’s The Emotion Thesaurus is Cheyenne Trumbo (Ava Rogers). He said the reason he chose her gravatar was because it looked like smoke. I told him it was actually a photograph of her behind her hair. He thought that was so cool that she looked like smoke. (A future pyromaniac in the making?)
Anyway, thank you to all who participated and/or helped spread the word. And congratulations to Cheyenne, I hope you get as much use out of this edition as I have.
Readers, if you haven’t signed up for notifications, now would be the time to do so. I am going to be giving away one reference book each month throughout 2019, beginning April 1st. Winners will be selected among those who have liked the post announcing the winner of the previous month’s giveaway (THIS POST), and will be declared in the comments of the post and on Twitter. At this time I ask that the contest be kept entries within the USA as the shipping fees to other countries is astronomical -($25+ to Germany for a single book!)
This month’s title – KEYS TO GREAT WRITING, by Stephen Wilbers.
- Remember, you must like this post to be entered in next month’s giveaway. Good luck and let the contests begin!
