So it took me a while to figure out how to get five people their preferred prize packs without emailing back and forth for like a month. So here is what I like to call my Winners' Pyramid Scheme!

The first winner sends me their top choice. The 2nd place winner sends me their top two choices, the third place winner the top three choices, etc. to fifth place. Then, if, by chance, everyone wants exactly the same prize packs in exactly the same order (which would be weird!) then I can still accommodate everyone. And well, if you listed everyone's choices altogether, one line apart, it would look like a pyramid!:D (Yes, I am easily amused.)

So here we go!!!

1st Place Abbi, who listed herself as Anonymous originally and came back to correct it.

2nd Place Tina (Book Couture)

3rd Place Kalina Kay

4th Place Ashley whose birthday was October 17th.

5th Place Kelsey who would like Laurel to be with Tamani.:D (Hey if you're making requests you may as well make requests, right??)

Please email me at aprilynne pike at g mail dot com with your preferences for prize packs listed in order, as well as your actual name and mailing address. Also, please let me know if you would prefer Wings or Spells to go along with your prize pack and what name you would like it personalized to. Once I have this info, I will mail stuff out as soon as possible!

**If I do not hear from you by Saturday, I will announce a new winner to take your spot!!**

Thank you so much to everyone for entering!!!

And now for some really fun news, I will be revealing the cover and jacket copy for ILLUSIONS next week!! I will be doing a fun puzzle-piece hunt with my awesome fansite, Late Bloomers, as well as some of their affiliates. More details will follow, but the fun starts Monday! I cannot WAIT to show you guys this cover, it is SO gorgeous!! (Also, the jacket copy rocks SO FREAKIN' MUCH!!!!!)

And on top of that, there will be a special surprise to go along with the cover reveal at the end of next week that I have also been bursting to show people! So mega excitement next week, and an actual writing-related post this week!

Good for them.

Kayma said...

by the way, I agree with whomever said "Tamani should be with Laurel"

Heather said...

Congrats to the winners!

Kelly said...

Laurel should be with the one who isn't pushing her to be someone she's not ready to be and might never be ready to be, the one who encourages her to make her own decisions regardless of what anyone else wants, the one who sees her as who she is and not "what" she is... which is David :)

Congrats to the winners!

Mary @The Sweet Bookshelf said...

OMG! I can't wait to see the cover!! It means we're getting closer to the release date!! Which I am bursting with excitement for.... just sayin'. Tamani is the stuff my dreams are made of. ;)

Fantasy said...

omg I cannot wait for Illusions!!! It's gonna be the coolest cover EVER! I just know it! Congrats to all the winners!

Carolina said...

I cannot wait for this book to come out! Can you please have a blurb on what Illusions will be about? And about that movie people are talking about, first of all, Disney will butcher it and probably turn it into a kids' movie, and I think Avan Jogia from Victorious(a nickelodeon show)would be PERFECT for Tamani.

Ok I am so excited to see the Illusions cover :D :D Yay!!!

Brianna Hart said...

sadness ensues

Melissa Down Under said...

Firstly congratulations to the winners of the book packs!
Secondly, oh my goodness the Illusions cover? This year is flying past! It doesn't seem that long ago that you revealed the Spells cover! Maybe it won't be such a long wait after all!
Maybe it is because there have been so many awesome books coming out to read lately.

Jessie said...

Hooray! Cover release = WHOOT!
Oh, and if you do end up having Laurel pick David, it's okay, cuz even though I'll hate you, it will be that good kind of hate that only good authors get. You know what I mean? Like, if J.K Rowling had made Harry die, I would hate her guts, but it would make her an even more awesome author. Hope that makes sense! :D :D :D

JLC said...

Congrats to all the winners! :)

I can't wait to see the Illusions cover! I love these books!

Laurel said...

Hurray!! I think that you must be getting kinda of tired of everyone saying this, but.. Tamani is soo much better for her because he probably won't die when she is 'not even middle-aged'
By the way, How could the cover be better than spells?
