Before we get to the winners for the Creasy, Wisdom and Treanor contests, I wanted to make sure everyone saw that Jennifer Estep was here on Thursday talking about the relationships her Elemental Assassins character, Gin, has found herself in. Plus, she is giving away a copy of Tangled Threads to one lucky individual. The contest ends May 5th.
If you haven’t stopped by yet, why do that now?
One more thing, I was never contacted by the winner for the signed copies of Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series. So I am going to do something a little different with the redraw this time around. I can’t decide exactly how I want to do it, so I thought I would leave it up to you guys, since you’re the ones who entered in the first place. Here are my two ideas:
- A new contest only involving those who entered at the original Birthday Celebration. This way, the person who does end up being the winner has been back to LE since then and didn’t show up the first time around just for the contest. *grin* Evil, I know, but I’m thinking that is what happened to the first winner.
- A new contest where anyone can enter, but for anyone who also commented on the original Birthday Celebration, they’ll get extra points to help boost their chances.
So what do you guys think? Which option should I go with – One or Two?
Now on to the winners….
I had the wonderful Sara Creasy on Literary Escapism talking about science fiction and what is in it for urban fantasy readers. While she was here, we gave away copies of Song of Scarabaeus and Children of Scarabaeus plus a signed bookmark. In order to enter, all anyone had to do was answer: What are some of your favorite SF novels? If you haven’t tried an SF novel, why not?. Now, without further ado, the winner is:
RACHEL A who said: I recently started reading SF- I’ve read all the Dock Five books by Linnea Sinclair and loved them! It’s a shame there are only 4 of them. I recently bought Stardoc, Close Encounters, Touched by an Alien, and Grimspace, but haven’t read them yet.
I had the wonderful Linda Wisdom on Literary Escapism talking about how she went about creating her wonderful characters. While she was here, we gave away two copies of her novel, Demons Are a Girl’s Best Friend. In order to enter, all anyone had to do was answer: Do you feel the characters are real in the books you read? Would you expect to run into them at the mall or even the grocery store?. Now, without further ado, the winners are:
TERESA K who said: When I read yes I see the characters as real. It’s like I’m in the story also watching the characters. Do I expect to run into them at the mall or grocery store. At this point nothing would surprise me.
My Medicine man of our Nation once told me; “just because you don’t see the supernatural beings, doesn’t mean they don’t exist”. So that’s the way I look at life. It wouldn’t surprise me if they discovered Vampires, shapeshifters. I know Witches and Demons exist.
LILI (from Chica Reader) who said: Yes, definitely. I would imagine running into most of my favorite characters in their haunts because of the frequent mention of them in the books I read.
This author sounds pretty freaking amazing for having published and sold that many books! I’m glad I found about Linda now since I’m going through a “Demon” phase, and of course who doesn’t love witches? Thanks for the giveaway!
Congratulations Teresa and Lili!
I had the wonderful Marie Treanor on Literary Escapism talking about why she writes vampire fiction (vampire escapism). While he was here, we gave away a copy of Blood Sin.. In order to enter, all anyone had to do was answer: What is it about vampires that attracts that you?. Now, without further ado, the winner is:
MELANIE S (from Books For All Eternity who said: To be honest, the first vampire I was attracted to was Spike (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) because of his style *g* but today I find it very interesting to read about their life, where they’ve been, what they’ve done – there are a lot of possibilities and if they have a dark secret or a darker side I can’t resist them…
You have one week to send me an email at jackie AT literaryescapism DOT com, with the contest you won in the subject line, otherwise I’ll draw a new name when I post the current contest winners next weekend.
