Bourbon Street & Marr/Keaton Winners

Some LE news re contests…I’m messing with how I’m announcing contest winners. I like the idea of posting them and having the winners email me; that way I know the people who are entering, are not just stopping by to enter and are never seen again. However, that means there’s a waiting period for the person to see their name, contact me and then forwarding the info onto whoever offered the contest. That also means if someone doesn’t respond, then I need to draw a new name.

So I’m wondering, do you like seeing contest winners posted or is a quick note just as sufficient? As for authors, do you prefer having all the info sent to you or do you like the option of contacting the winners yourself?

In any case, since most of the prizes were digital, I’ve drawn winners for the Authors After Dark on Bourbon Street event from February and have already forwarded your information to the authors.  I have also sent emails to all the winners, but just in case, here’s a list of the winners:

Congratulations everyone!

Faery Tales & Nightmares and A Beautiful Evil

Thanks to the fabulous Melissa Marr and Kelly Keaton, Literary Escapism stopped by to give away a signed copy of Faery Tales and Nightmares and A Beautiful Evil to one lucky reader. In order to enter, all anyone had to do was answer: What is your favorite faery tale? Do you like the Disney version or the more nightmarish original? Is there a movie version that does the tale fabulously? Now, without further ado, the winner is:

TORI who said: My favorite fairy tale has always been Little Red Riding Hood. While the Disney version is nice for kids, I’ve always enjoyed the darker versions of the story. There have been a few darker versions – Red Riding Hood, directed by Catherine Hardwicke, could have been had it not been dipped in “twilight glitter”. The screen play itself is very Gothic and dramatic. The Company of Wolves (1984) and Little Red Riding Hood (1997) are both horror versions and quite delightful in their make up.

A Looney Tunes version – The Trial of Mr. Wolf, is an animation made in 1941. The wolf goes on trial for harassment of Red but his defense is she wanted his pelt for a fur coat. :)

Congratulations Tori! I’ve already sent you an email and I do need you to respond within 48 hours otherwise I will be drawing a new name.

Why yes, I think I will do that.  Since I am emailing winners now, winners won’t have as long to claim their prizes.  This should help move the process along. Don’t you think?  Besides, I don’t think it took an hour for Tori to respond to my email, so maybe this is the way to help speed this process up. *grin*
