Last week, on Ash Wednesday, I announced an opportunity for you to win a copy of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey, pre-release. The goal was for twenty-five comments, not counting mine or my immediate family. I must say, you all amazed and overwhelmed us over the past five and a half days. Your words offered encouragement, inspiration, and a renewed hope to my husband, daughter, parents, and me. Thank you so much!
I'm glad I am using a generator to pick the winner because each of your comments touched my heart deeply. It took me days to respond because your words had such a positive and reflective impact on me. Thank you for that. I never expected such an overflowing bounty of love.
On the video below, you will experience the name being selected first hand. To keep with the April third release, the winner of the book will be in position #3, not #1. I used a program called "Top Hat" to draw the names. There is a choice between the top hat or a bucket and sea shells. I chose the bucket and shells to remind us of warmer days ahead.
I don't want to keep you waiting any longer....click play on the video to find out who won the Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) for leaving a comment on last week's Ash Wednesday's blog.
Congratulations Marion Tickner! Your autographed ARC copy of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey is in the mail. After you read, if you would like to "guest blog" here with a review, drop me an email and we'll see what we can work out. If you didn't win ~ no worries, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey releases in forty-two days.
If you are an online shopper, it will be available at Midnight on Amazon.com. If you are hoping for an autographed copy - The River's End Bookstore, located on the corner of Route 104 and West First Street in Oswego is hosting a huge book release and signing party from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
In addition to the celebration at The River's End, I will be selling and signing books at a mystery book signing on April 3rd. As part of our weekly "T.O.P.'s Tuesday" blog during the month of March, there will be clues within the posts of my whereabouts prior to the signing and release party in Oswego.
Thank you for the overwhelming bounty of love and encouragement each of you expressed in your comments!
