Day Six's Giveaway had two prizes. Both winners have been confirmed!
Mervi chose Faefever by Karen Marie Moning from TBD.
Proserpine was the US/Canada winner and she will receive two signed books by Jamie McGuire.
Now for a little bit of a confession! It took me quite awhile to get a winner for the previous prize.
Next time I giveaway a prize for US/ Canada it will have a separate Rafflecopter!
It took me forever! Either an International follower would come up (apparently I have a lot of them!) some names came up that left a comment saying they didn't want the books, as I had already picked the TBD prize, that eliminated them as well, and other people didn't leave a comment letting me know if they were from US or not. At first I checked on Facebook to see if they were and then I got frustrated with that method as well. Do you know how many people don't have what country they are from listed on their Facebook profile?
So then I felt guilty about all of those possible winners that missed their chance because they didn't leave a comment. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for Proserpine, but I almost feel like I cheated the others. I just don't have time to contact every person to ask if they are eligible for a prize and wait for them to get back to me!
Day Seven - book from TBD by one of my favorite newly discovered authors
My winner hasn't responded yet. :(
I decided to pull a couple extra winners to make up for the previous day's mess up.
I offered the following extra "winners" their choice of ebook from some of those same authors.
Christine chose The Unofficial Zack Warren Fan Club by J.C. Isabella.
Debbie W. chose Wicked Woods by Kailin Gow.
Brianna also chose Wicked Woods.
Heather chose Mourning Sun by Shari Richardson.
Tammy chose Chasing McCree by J.C. Isabella.
I contacted a handful more and they haven't responded. If I don't hear back from them within 36 hours then I'll assume they weren't interested in an ebook. I am Not picking more winners for this impromtu addition to the giveaway.
I will pick another winner if the main winner doesn't respond.
The Day Eight giveaway ~ a book from The Book Depository (winner's choice)
Ana was the confirmed winner and she chose Miss Fortune Cookie.
Have you ever had something that should be simple give you such a headache?
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
