Free Book Drawing: The Winners

Very happy to announce the winners of the drawing for a free book from my series, The Entire and The Rose. Thanks to all who entered from around the world!

In the interest of full transparency, I must reveal that when it came time to supervise the drawing, Sumo was nowhere to be found. My husband and I carried on without him, and here are the winners: (I added a fourth winner because we drew two names at once.)

Zack Delarosa, from Commerce City, Colorado. (A World Too Near)

Marina Bonomi, Sona, Italy (Bright of the Sky)

Ryan Mallady, Snoqualmie, Washington (Bright of the Sky)

Guy Wade, Hartford, Wisconsin (Bright of the Sky)

The books will go in the mail on Monday. I hope you enjoy them, and thanks to all the entrants for helping me celebrate the debut of my new blog and website! It’s readers like you that keep the fires lit and the stories coming. Thank you.
