Book Giveaway Winners!

Happy New Year!

It’s time to reveal the winners of my December book giveaway! Thank you to everyone who commented on my blog and Facebook page this past month. I’ve enjoyed connecting with you.

It’s time for the big moment. My dog let me borrow his hat for the drawing. (Thanks, Uno!)


All the contestants have entered the arena.


I let my trusty sidekick, a.k.a. husband, draw the names, so if you didn’t get picked, you can blame him. Here are the winners in the order they were chosen.


Congratulations to Nicole Arntz, Annie Neugebauer, and Melodie Camp!

Since Nicole’s name was drawn twice (lucky!) I decided to draw a fourth card. Nicole will get first choice of books and a bonus item– a copy of the newly released 2014-2015 Best Austin Poetry.

I’ll be contacting the winners shortly to get mailing addresses and find out which book you want. Here are the choices:


Thank you again to everyone who participated in the giveaway. Have a wonderful 2016, and happy reading! 🙂
