Winners of THE FAMILY TREE Contest announced!

It’s been a pretty crazy month for me — aside from having our kitchen completely ripped up as it is being redone floor to ceiling, I was also out of the country for work for a week… so I’m afraid I’m remiss in announcing the winners of last month’s The Family Tree contest…  Nevertheless… I did, in fact, notify the winners in August.

Here’s how it all went down — Samhain Publishing was running a month-long promotion of my eighth, and latest novel, and so I held a contest to help promote the book. People who posted reviews or links on Facebook and Twitter to The Family Tree sale were entered into the contest. At the end of August, I put all of their entries in order on a spreadsheet… and then “pulled names” using Random.Org — a pretty cool random number generator.

The winners were:

2nd Prize: Kate Sender – e-book copy of one of my fiction collections, Cage of Bones, Vigilantes of Love, Candy in the Dumpster or my novelette Failure.

1st Prize: Adrian – who asked for a Kindle copy of Violet Eyes.

Grand Prize: Lionel Ray Green – who will appear as a minor character in my next novel! (He’s got to wait a bit for that prize to appear as I’m 75% done with that next book… but sometime in 2016 his name will be popping up in a chapter!)

Thanks to everyone for entering the contest and helping me to spread the word about The Family Tree. And congratulations to all the winners!
