I Would Give You a Dozen Goats (& a Winner)

I have the coolest friends and supporters in the universe. Some of these people I've never met in person - but they are positive and I am positive and together we do uber-positive things - and so, good things happen. This weekend, Steph/Reviewer X revealed a contest that is insanely great and was possible only because of a group of generous people got together to do it. Awesome. The fact that it was celebrate my book? Humbling indeed. Go here to check it out. A few of these awesome supportive peeps have posted interviews or reviews of The Dust of 100 Dogs this week, and I want to point you to them. The Rocking Melissa Walker talks about The Dust of 100 Dogs cover - and My Favorite Boots HERE! Book Chic has an interview with me today and will have a few items on the blog all week long! Thank you Book Chic! READ IT HERE. The Book Muncher interviewed Me and Emer and you just HAVE to read it. FIND IT HERE. I totally got a spot at MacLeanSpace. Stoked. MEET A.S. King. And I really need to thank my good friends who have held my hand through this awesome ride so far - you are *stars* - and the regulars who continue to come around to this blog and play games and leave comments and be just all sorts of cool. I wish I could give each of you a dozen goats or two yachts or something. Now, it's WINNER TIME for the 10 word contest from the weekend of mayhem launch party.
  • Keith really cracked us up with his Grapes of Wrath entry. Gloom, depression, hopelessness and death. And then things go downhill.
  • Liviania totally killed me with her Watership Down entry. Bunnies escape death. Find home. Steal females from psycho bunny.
The judges agree it was a tie - and I'll have you know I've had to fire the lot of them because we fought for about 4 hours over the finalists in this top five list too. Terri Joanne Levy Sharonannee (LOVE Day of the Triffids!) Thao Lalaland Keith & Liviania, could you email me with your mailing info? Thanks to EVERYONE who played! Don't be too blue if you didn't win. I'll be back next weekend (with new judges who agree faster) to toss out another challenge and give away another signed copy. In the meantime, spread the word about The Dust of 100 Dogs and I'll see you on Wednesday when we'll meet Linda Gerber's awesome doggie, Kali.

I'm happy I'm one of the finalists. Congrats to the winner. I hope I'm the lucky one next time : D

This was another tough one to judge. We really couldn't agree on much. So many great entries!

I was just starting to wonder if I'm the only person around who knows what Triffids are.

Joanne Levy said...

Great contests/launch - I can't remember the last time I had this much fun at a launch party!

Incidentally, Sharonanne, I was a huge fan of John Wyndham back in high school and read most of his books. Loved The Day of the Triffids, although I must say The Chrysalids and Trouble with Lichen were my favs.

Woo hoo! I'm a winner! And gosh darn it, people like me. Or not.

Anyway, mark me down as another Triffids fan. Now that's my kinda houseplant!
