Winners Announced!

We have winners! Lots! Twelve, in fact. I promised to introduce you to my wonderful WrAHM friends who stepped up to provide awesome prizes so let's begin with...

A.G. Howard
A.G. Howard, the debut author of the upcoming Splintered has provided some awesome swag. Splintered is a dark Alice in Wonderland spin-off slated for release in January 2013. A.G. is talented, so creative, and ultra beautiful. Seriously, that woman can take a good pic, can't she? Oh, and she's nice. Yeah, she's the whole package. Watch this one, guys. She's gonna go far.

And the winners of Splintered swag (see the picture to the left) are:
Splintered bookplate - Jenna Cooper
Alice in Wonderland gift tag - Hildred Billings
Splintered button - Brookea_2006
Splintered bookmarks - Amber Tuscan-Clites
Stacy Stanberg Jensen & G

YA writer Carrie Bastyr is the bomb. Even though I think she and I are in a huge battle over Adam Levine (yum). If you like giveaways, you need to be following Carrie's blog. She's a mega giveaway girl. And on top of that she's giving a copy of All These Lives by Sarah Wylie to...Susanne Drazic.  Thank you, Carrie!
YA writer Melissa Brady King is the next talented mama I'm introducing. Wow, can that girl write some good historical romance. I am really not a historical reader, but I had the privilege of CP'ing her fabulous book The Bootlegger's Daughter and now I'm converted. She's very talented. And very generous. She is giving away a copy of The Duff by Kody Keplinger to...Kathy Phillips. Congrats, Kathy! Middle Grade reviewer Robyn Lucas is my favorite cheerleader. I love this woman's enthusiasm. Her creative energy is infectious. In my next life I'm totally gonna figure out how to be that for people. Robyn is such a great critique partner which is why Daisy Carter is so lucky to be the winner of a pitch or query critique from Robyn. Celebration time, Daisy!

Agented MG writer Kathrine Ernst has my heart. She is such a kindred spirit. I had the amazing opportunity to beta read the book that earned her an agent and I'm telling you, she's TALENTED. And funny. And so smart. There are so many aspects of Katie's writing approach and outlook on life that make me stand up and say YES! She possesses sarcastic humor yet a very positive persona. Love her. Hildred Billings Coleen Patrick is the lucky winner of a query critique from Katherine. Ultra lucky, I'm telling you. (Hildred gave up her prize since she doesn't have a critique to query).

The final two prizes come from little old me. First, the winner of  Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is Jennifer Eaton.

And the grand prize winner of a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble is....Jennifer Pitts.

Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to all who donated prizes. And thank you to all who read and follow and support me. It's been a crazy, happy, fun year and I'm glad to have shared it with you all!

Ha! You added an extra e in my name. :) It's the curse of the last name ernst.

First of all, I think I need to hire you as my PR girl, Laura! What a beautiful write up! Thank you! (I deserve no credit for the picture; I am NOT photogenic ... just hired a professional photographer for once. Paid off). And congratulations to the winners! I'll be sending the prizes your way. :)

YAY! I can't believe I won!! So excited to get my Splintered bookmark! ::happy dance::

Laura Barnes said...

Katie, that's what I get for posting at 1 in the morning. I know how to spell your name! *fixing now*

Laura Barnes said...

Oh, plus, I'm organizing a funeral for this week and, kid you not, the guy's last name is Ernest. I got it on the brain. :)

Laura Barnes said...

Whatev. I've seen other pics of you and you're just as beautiful. And I am too laid back to do PR effectively. And I am probably not nice enough.
Thanks for the cool swag! I need to figure out how to win some. :)

Aghoward said...

Okay, cutie. All you needs to do is email me w/your snail addy and I'll totally send some swag your way. Your my WrAHM sistah, after all. :)
