Winners and Widgets!

Okay, I'm a little late . . . . but I'm getting SO much good work done on Wings III! Trust me, the two-day delay will be worth it.:D

Okay, our winner for Struts and Frets is:

Maybe Genius who loves "I Love The Rain The Most" by Joe Purdy!

And our winner for Mistwood is:

Erica, who would shift into a hypogriff or a leopard!!

Both of you please email me your names, and addresses to aprilynne pike at g mail dot com and I will get those in the mail just as soon as possible!

Thank you everyone for entering, this ended up being a fun and really big contest! Yay!!!


Have you noticed the little addition in my sidebar?

I HAVE A WIDGET!!!!! Whoo-hoo!!!!!! (I'm really excited.) My husband made it, including coding the whole thing from scratch because he's just super-awesome like that. *smooches hubby*

And in celebration of my new widget, I'm going to cough up one more ARC of Spells!!!!

Long-time readers will know I don't like to make contests work, so you just answer a question in the comments. But my little widget is spurring me into a bit more action. So this is a widget contest!

One ARC of Spells up for grabs and you can enter by posting the widget on your blog, and commenting with the web address where I can find it.

This contest also ends Monday morning, but unlike this Monday, I will also announce it on Monday. *shifty eyes* Ahem.

You can get the code for the widget by clicking the "Share This" button in the upper right hand corner, or you can go here and copy/paste it right from my website.

Also . . . . SPELLS COMES OUT IN FORTY DAYS!!!!! EEEEEEEEEE!!!! *runs around in circles and falls down*

Have fun!

I saw you have The Otherworldlies in your bookshelf. I loved that book! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. (Also, The Host is SO. GOOD.)

Thanks for the contest!

Amber Lynae said...

I'm so excited for spells. I have it posted in my right sidebar. It will be making it into better blog real estate in the next few days because I"m going to be taking down the polls. SO it will get more visual.

Also, do you know if the widget works on facebook. I would love to advertise it there for you as well.

Always more than willing to have a guest feature on my blog if you are interested.

Lucinda S said...

xD You do love giving out Spells ARCs, don't you? ^^

So on the top of the widget, it says "brilliant and lovely." Is that for the book or the widget?
