There is now a winner of the Drifting House giveaway..!
Seeing as how I’m still a bit decrepit from my mega-cold (oh, plus there’s no water in my building today! booyah!), I didn’t do a video, but here’s a pseudo-live-blog of the drawing:
12:30pm: Ooh! Time to pick a winner!
12:40pm: Wait. Too early. The drawing ends at 1:00pm.
12:45pm: Last minute tweet urging people to enter the giveaway.
1:15pm: Ooh! Time to pick a winner!
1:16pm: Seriously. Why did only 4 people enter this giveaway? It never ceases to amaze me how some books get 70+ entries, and others less than 10. Please buy this book.
1:20pm: I normally would enter names in a spreadsheet in the order of comment. But ahem, seeing as there are only 4 (y’all got a 25% chance of winning!) here they are:
1:30pm: Bring up random.org. Instruct it to enter a number between 1 and 4.
1:31pm: Time to pick a random number!
*drum roll please*
*ongoing drum roll*
*some more drum roll*
(well, more like the sound of my husband frying up some bacon for lunch).
1:33pm: And the winning number is 3! HEATHER!
Heather’s comment was:
“The book had me at “snow devoured.” Also, if the wiener dogs enjoyed reading it, then I’m sure I will, as well. :)”
Congratulations to Heather–and thank you for supporting the Drifting House giveaway, and Krys Lee. I hope all of you who wanted a copy and didn’t win, still manage to find yourselves a copy. Thank you!
1:40pm: Start thinking about the number 3, and start craving Tres Leches cake. Dammit.
***Stay tuned for more giveaways in the upcoming days and weeks! Upcoming giveaways:
- Nina LaCour’s awesome YA novel The Disenchantments
- A copy of Catherine Chung’s novel Forgotten Country; this book is so heartbreakingly good.
- The Reeducation of Cherry Truong by Aimee Phan
