Winners Announced

The response to my BOOK GIVEAWAY competition was somewhat disappointing, so I've decided to close the competition early and draw the winners today.

Thank you to all those who did participate on any of the social media forms! Your interest and help was appreciated.

Now...onto the draw. The tension mounted at the breakfast table today. My personal auditor, Beric, who is strict, ethical and focused, arrived on time. He waited...and waited, as I wrote down all the entrants names on slips of paper. These slips were folded (in equal sizes) and thrown into his cereal bowl. Using his left hand (although he refused to close his eyes to ensure complete security!)  he drew out four names, one by one, and we finally had four lucky winners of the wonderful autographed books by South African women authors.

These winners are:

Petro Schonfeld Nhalpo: The Bed Book of Stories

Tessa Conte: The Thin Line

Carol N Wong: Trinity on Air

Congratulations to all our winners (who are all new visitors!). I'll be contacting you privately to get your postal addresses so that I can mail you your prizes. Enjoy your books!

Congrats on the winners. I posted the link to your giveaway on Read SA and am rather disappointed that the response was not huge. Especially because these are people who talk about encouraging South Africans to read South African books.

Congratulations to the winners! I hope they enjoy the books. I'm sorry the giveaway was disappointing to you, Judy. I think the summer blog attendance is pretty low.

Judy, I am truly sorry for not getting by here. And I'm sorry that your contest was disappointing. GAH! I would have entered. SHEESH!

Please forgive my absence. I have been so busy with doctor appointments that I haven't gotten around as much as I should. Especially with you.

I love you my dear friend. Please forgive and I'll be around a lot more now. *Hugs*

Congrats, winners! And thanks to Beric, for his fine work. I wouldn't worry about the #s, Judy, people do seem to be taking a blog break these days. It's crazy back-to-school time for us here.

Congrats to your winners! Sorry, I've missed this but as Anita said, it's back to school time here. After tomorrow I will live in a child free home for the first time in 25 years. Crazy, right? Cheers~
