Kessler & Lofty Winner!

Before we get to the winners for Black and White and Song of Seduction (which sadly had to be redrawn), have you check out this weeks contests yet?

Jackie Kessler Contest

I had the amazing opportunity to talk with Jackie Kessler at RT this year and recently posted the conversation we had. To celebrate the release of Shades of Gray, Jackie was sweet enough to give away a copy of Black and White, the first novel in the Icarus Project series, to one lucky winner. In order to enter, everyone had to answer a question, but since I totally screwed it up, I’m going to skip adding it to the announcement. Now, without further ado, the winner is: THOMAS!

Congratulations Thomas!

Carrie Lofty Contest

Sadly, I have yet to hear back from my Carrie Lofty winner.  So that means someone else gets a chance a great new novel.  While Carrie was here, we decided to give away a copy of Song of Seduction to a lucky winner.  In order to enter, everyone had to answer the question: What do you think of historical characters in romance? Are they an unwanted distraction from the romantic fantasy? Now, without further ado, the winner is:

REBECCA B who said: it depends upon how familiar with the period I am. I’m a medievalist by training, so early 19th century Austria is *pretty* (totally) unfamiliar to me, and historical figures probably wouldn’t be a distraction. (actually, musicians would be fun!) But I’m constantly distracted by appearances of historical figures in medieval historical fiction. I can’t think of any specific examples right now, but having a deus ex machina with a medieval king always frustrates me. It’s probably why I don’t read much medieval fiction….

Also, this book looks fantastic! I love stories revolving around music. Describing music in the written word is such a challenge!

Congratulations Deb!

Winners! You have one week to send me an email at jackie AT literaryescapism DOT com, otherwise I’ll draw a new name when I post the current contest winners next weekend.

As always, I determined the winners by inputting all the entries into the List Randomizer, scrambling it up a couple of times, and then had the Research Randomizer pick a number.

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
