BALLAD Winners: The Reprise

If you have a strange feeling of deja vu while reading this post that's because I posted winners for this contest three days ago. However, I have been forced to post again since one of the two winners didn't contact me.

But before I get to the winners, let me just say that this "not bothering to contact me about the books I am trying to give you" thing has to stop. I mean, are you entering these contests and deciding later that maybe you didn't need that signed book by a super-cool author after all? Of course you aren't!

I'm not trying to be a grumpy blogger here, but this is the second time in a matter of weeks that I've had to repick a winner for a contest all because that person either failed to contact me or failed to leave me an e-mail address so I can contact them. All I ask is that you leave an e-mail in your comment for the contest. Not in a comment for an old contest, not in your profile, not out on somewhere in Google-space, but where I can read it when I tally entries. Please? Pretty please, make giving away books easy for me.

Now, on to happier news! We have winners!


Victoria, you have been upgraded and are now the winner of a signed AND doodled BALLAD!
And the new winner of a second signed copy of BALLAD is Aik!

Hazaa! Victoria, I have your information and will mail your book today. Aik, I have emailed you. Please respond with your mailing address in 48 hours and I will send the book out shortly.

Congratulations ladies! Thanks to everyone who entered. I'll have some more contests up very soon.
Maybe I'll even post one tonight...


  1. Congratulations to the winner!

    PS I always leave my email so feel free to send me any left over free books LOL
