BAFAB: Deadline January 8th

TIME’S UP!

The winner is …. number 115 – kathemc!!!

January 09 BAFAB Winner

In the event I can’t reach kathemc by Tuesday, January 13th, I’ll attempt to contact the second person listed.

Aargh, I wish my blog template would number the comments. It sort of sucks to have to count, and then recount, and then count one more time just to make sure.

At any rate, THANK YOU to everyone who commented and visited!! I hope you’ll consider putting me in your RSS reader and/or come back and visit me on a regular basis. Have a great day, everyone!!

Comments are closed to avoid confusion.

July BAFAB Winner Announced

Win a FREE book at writefromkaren.com

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who put their name in the comment pot for my July Buy a Friend a Book (BAFAB) giveaway. And a HUGE THANK YOU to those that posted my button and spread the word – I heart you guys, truly I do.

I’m listing all of the people who were interested in the free book here. Since wordpress.com doesn’t come with that snazzy sticky feature (I miss the sticky feature wordpress! Waah!), I’m going to have to clear the FREE BOOK page so I can use it again for October’s BAFAB drawing. (Sorry about the comments disappearing! When I closed comments on the FREE BOOK page wordpress made them disappear! They are still there, you just can’t see them! ACK!)

But I didn’t want to lose all of the comments, or the lnks to the wonderful people who left a comment, so, I’m listing them here so their links remain and I can do what I need to do with the FREE BOOK page.

Capiche?

Don’t worry, it doesn’t really make sense to me, either. πŸ˜€

Here are the uber-cool people who put their names into the comment pot (in no particular order):

1. Shoshana 2. Danica 3. Melanie 4. Tina
5. Julie 6. Sandy 7. Emily 8. Dawn
9. Teresa W. 10. Lori Barnes 11. Elaine 12. Lulliannie
13. The Book Muncher 14. Samantha 15. Karin A 16. Johannah B
17. Carol Ezovski 18. Kristine Peacock 19. Janelle 20. Lizzie
21. Juxtabook 22. Melanie 23. Debbie 24. Book-Adorer
25. Ryan 26. Chel 27. Judy 28. The Story Siren
29. Marianne 30.avni 31. Deborah 32. ellie
33. Cyndi 34. Breanna 35. Lucy D 36. Alessandra
37. erica 38. emily 39. Nitestar 40. Joy @ Joy of Desserts
41. Pamk 42. bunnyb 43. Archana 44. Deb – Mom of 3 Girls
45. kegsoccer 46. Margay 47. Pamk 48. Nicole
50. Becca 51. Popin 52. Julie 53. Katie
54. Tina

After running the number of commenters through random.org, here are the top three picks:

July BAFAB Winner

CONGRATULATIONS BECCA!!!

(In the event that I can’t reach Becca within three days (by 5:00 p.m. U.S. central time July 6th), the second person listed wins the book. So, if your number was drawn, check your email!)

Thanks again for participating, everyone! I LOVELOVELOVE doing this every quarter! Please bookmark me and we’ll do this again in October!
