I've spent the last hour tallying contest entries and let me tell you, the response was overwhelming! Thanks to everyone who followed the blog, tweeted, or posted about teh contest. Honestly, I don't know if I'm thrilled or terrified to know that you all are following me and reading my deathless prose, but I'm glad to have you aboard, either way. :)
Now, on to the excitement...
Like I said, there was a great turnout for this one. A total of 94 people submitted 658 entries. Whoa! I'm just thankful I only had to tally entries and create a word document with a line for each person. Contest Winner Picker did the rest.
Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I decided to add a second signed Maggie Stiefvater book at the last minute. It's not doodled like the first one, but it is still awesome. So there will be a SECOND WINNER. *gasp*
Jeni, you are the winner of a signed, doodled copy of BALLAD by Maggie Stiefvater!
And Victoria, you are the winner of the second book... Which is another signed copy of BALLAD!
Congratulations ladies! Victoria, I have e-mailed you. Jeni, unfortunately you didn't leave an e-mail address, so I couldn't send you a note. Both of you have 48 hours to respond with you mailing address, and I will get your winning out to you very soon.
Thanks again to everyone who entered! Stay tuned for the rest of the Author Insight Series and more great contests...
