Don’t Faint! I’m Announcing Winners!

Hello Ladies! (No seriously, is there any dude who reads ALBTALBS? If yes, speak please, so I can figure out a proper/most awesome form of address.) This is a winner’s post! No lie. I’m starting with 2015… so … sorry if I missed things. If I did, feel free to let me know. I’m just not up to checking. Going back into 2014 for various reasons will make me want to kill myself. >.> … Probably. But it’s not a theory I’m willing to test. Especially since today has been … off. And to be honest I’m kinda impressed with myself that I’ve even been posting at least every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday so far this year. Let’s all keep our expectations for me low, shall we? (No really, please do that.)

So whatever. Whine whine whine, amirite? I also still need to write An Explanations to Heritage Posts … probably. >.> Right? Cuz everyone’s all WE NEED DIVERSITY AND DIVERSE BOOKS IN ROMANCE! And then … >.>

Oh also? People who are loyal readesrs – which I only know by comments, sometimes get bonus things. Like Diane faithfully brightens by day with comments … and she got two signed books from Kate Pearce because it. Just because. See? I do try to spread love and happiness… sometimes behind the scenes, and sometimes not so behind the scenes cuz I want you to talk to me! … And to the guests. Otherwise what if nobody ever comes back every again to play with us at ALBTALBS ever?!?!?!?


So … Winners. If a post has already had winners etc, e.g. Deelylah Mullin’s post, I’m just not going to list it. … Starting now, of course. :X

These are the January Giveaway Posts/Winners:

For Cathy Yardley’s post her winner is Shannon

Jessica Scott’s winner is sharonchalk

With Alexandra Christian her winner is ki pha

Susanna Fraser’s winner XD by default is bn100

The wonderful Leslie Kelly has two winners, and they are eawells and Shelly S

ALBTALBS friend Lorelie Brown is always generous and offers a giveaway, and this time her winner is mathlady68

Fiona Lowe’s winner is Diane Sallans

Elizabeth Andrews was here and her winner is Michelle

In February… there was just one – my flash giveaway of Katharine Ashe’s I Married the Duke and the winner of a kindle copy of this fabulous story is Ada!

If you won something, please email me – there’s a handy dandy contact form if you don’t have my email. To help expedite things, please make the subject “WINNER: [Author name]” For example, Shannon’s email subject to me would be “WINNER: Cathy Yardley.” This will ideally ensure I won’t miss your email.

Everyone has until … 11:59 PM EST on March 7th to email me to claim her prize.

Ready, set … GO!

[Aren’t we all surprised I actually did this? It’s been too long. My apologies.]

Winners Like Never Before. Winners like NEVER Again.

I have been incredibly remiss in announcing winners. I apologize. I really am sorry. I never planned for it to happen, and never wanted it to. In August I spend most of my time at the hospital, and then I tried to catch up, then people kept dying – or being diagnosed with cancer. And then I was sick. So sick, for so long. I think I have mono. That’s not good.

So, with my sincere apologies, here are all the winners. I’m just going to list them all. You’ll have to forgive me.

I do want to let you know that I emailed everyone through February winner wise. I have said previously this is NOT ALBTALBS policy. But (shh – and don’t tell anyone!) I’m a soft touch. So I wanted to give people a chance. More details were of course provided to the winners.

This is a one off though – in the future, I do not plan to email winners. Even if I’m a month or two (or three+) late in announcing winners. I just can’t handle it. Obviously, as you can all see. Soooo this is also proof that you should enter contest with a legitimate email address. 😀

And some authors did of course take the initiative and announce their own winners/get the information from me to contact them. (I didn’t list those – makes it easier.)

Winners: Melanie, Shay, Kimberley, Timitra, Susan, Mary, Kim, Sheila, JoAnne, Larri, Tia, Patricia, Jessica, Nicola, VanillaOrchids, Annwitch, Jeanne Miro, Kelly, Marcie, Kimberly, Tess, Kathleen, Cherie, Janie, Mary, Sonya, Melody, elaing8, Maureen, Sarah, Carol, mathlady68, carreifort29, pc, Jane, gamistress66, lsureader, Lynda, Sierra, Mary,  and Cris.

For now. That’s everyone through January. >.> From August. That hadn’t already been doled out their prize/chosen.

Come back ~tomorrow for February winners. Which… I guess I’ll email too. Maybe.

You know what’s sad? I had help with this. I had an AWESOME supah sekrit killah minion help with randomizer.org and winners and it was glorious. Even so I just spent the last three hours checking things and emailing winners and I think my eyes are about to bleed and I have to be at work in like six hours.

So. How are all of you?

What did you do for St. Patrick’s Day? (I, of course, was green. ;))
