Two things to cover today: winners and books.
I. Drum roll, Please!
I’d like to announce the winners of my March giveaway. Thank you to everyone who humored me and entered. If you recall, I asked for a number between 1 and 1,000. The commenter who chose closest to the randomly generated number—accessed by Mr. Rubin last week via Random.org and only revealed to myself a few days ago (I enjoy suspense)—would win the ‘grand’ prize.
The number yielded by Mr. Rubin’s two seconds of blog contribution is:
And the ‘grand’ prize is:
By choosing the number 573, which was the closest to 566, the recipient of this DVD gift basket containing The Avengers and The Hunger Games movies and enough candy to score you a root canal, iiiiiss…
Congrats, Pegoleg! I hope you enjoy it. As promised, you’ll also receive a signed copy of The Seneca Scourge. A second copy of the book goes to Sheila Hurst, the runner-up with the number 554. Yay, Sheila!
I’ll e-mail you both for snail-mail addresses. Don’t worry; I’ll delete your addresses when I’m done.
After all, I’m not a stalker.
II. A Literary Rorschach Test
I’d like to share with you my latest, but I worry you might not stick around if I merely regurgitate book blurbs. So I decided to try something different. I pulled up the following fantastic book covers and jotted down the first thing that came to mind. Kind of like a Rorschach test in ten words or less.
My mini-synopses have nothing to do with the books themselves—much to the authors’ relief, I’m sure—but to learn more about these great reads, click on the title of the book and enter the Amazon jungle.
In the meantime, enjoy my cognitive functioning, minus the inkblots.
I’ll keep playing till that bedroom is Mom-clean, kiddo!
Help! My eyes are bigger than my boobies.
Ooh, there’s a jelly fish stinging my privates.
Oops, I shrunk Mr. Rubin.
Yes, the flowers are lovely, but where’s my chocolate?
I love a symmetrically flaming pentagram, don’t you?
Wow. My face hurts.
Shhh—the secrets of a translucent introvert.
As always, the chance to read novels crafted by fellow bloggers is an opportunity I treasure. Thanks to the above authors for letting me unleash my madness. Their wonderful book covers do not merit such insolence, but thankfully, their generous hearts put up with my nonsense.
What are you currently reading? Or watching? Or picking?…
This seems like a good time to give another heartfelt thank you to everyone who’s left an Amazon or Goodreads review for The Seneca Scourge. Authors live for that, and we sincerely appreciate your input. If you’ve read my book, or any other books by bloggers, know that we’d be grateful for a review from you. It doesn’t have to be long or fancy. We’re thrilled with any morsel. Thank you!!
