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 … >.> Continue reading

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. ;))

So Many Winners. Too Many Winners? ;X

I promised people I’d post this Saturday. We’ll just all have to play pretend. I had every intention to, bu then time got away and then it was after midnight and I’ve been sleep deprived and was up until ~3 anyway and now I just feel a little stabby.

So you know what would make this easy? I win everything!! That’s right, Limecello wins all the things!

😛 I wish.

So, here goes. I’m going to try to do this in order. You’ll have to forgive me if I don’t. As usual, courtesy of randomizer.org…

First, from way back on July 19, Leslie Kelly visited! [So hey – it’s been less than a month. YOU’RE WELCOME. I officially withdraw all sorts of apologies and regrets. :D] Her winners are Ellie Heller, Becky Ward, and Fedora!

Carolyn Jewel shared the entire second chapter of her upcoming book Not Proper Enough which will be one of the best books I read in 2012. Her winners are… Spaz, jeannemiro, and VanillaOrchids – you all are lucky! And… if you don’t like it, I don’t think we can be friends anymore. Just saying. 😉

Julie Anne Long was here with another fun author interview. Her winner is Jud!

We then had Lauren Dane sharing an excerpt of her upcoming duology – on my birthday! Her winner is Tina B!

Now… the Birthday Bash post, which kinda makes me want to cry. I didn’t want to respond to any of the comments, because I knew it’d make drawing names more difficult. Yeah, I’m a brat. :X HOWEVER I do totally appreciate all the comments and birthday wishes! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! So I guess your birthday present to me would’ve been being okay with me not responding individually. 😉

This… is going to take a while, so I hope you’re comfortable!

Last but not least, Samantha Kane was a guest and her winner is Mama Kitty.

Winners, you have until the end of Sunday, July 22nd to contact me. That’s 11:59 PM EDT. If necessary, please include your address. Some of you get your choice of a book. If so, remember to add that. If an ebook, please let me know your format of choice – you might not get it/it might not be available, but if it is, it saves a step. You’ll notice with every winner I’ve linked to the original post, so it’s a very easy click and check for you. Thanks for helping me out!

Also, if it’s been a reasonable period – like a month – and you haven’t gotten your prize yet, feel free to contact me and let me know. And… I can’t believe I have to say this but … if it’s only been a few days – chill okay? Nobody appreciates constant hounding. Least of all me. It makes me angry. And kinda hate you. And isn’t that a lovely note to end this all one?

Well whatever. There were ~54 winners listed in this post. I joked on twitter that I’m never having any more contests. Ever. 😀 [Some people took me seriously. O_o] So what do you guys think? 😉 Moratorium on giveaways?

Anyway – instructions summary.

If you won – include relevant information. Title of what you won. Address if necessary. If e-book, format of choice. Thanks! [For those of you who filled out the address form… if you did it properly, I’ve passed on the info. If not… well, you know the deal.]

Hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend!
