Drum Roll...Contest Winners!

I'm grateful to everyone who cruised by to leave a comment in honor of my cover reveal for my next book, The Truth Against the World--the favorite sayings you shared were all fabulous, and I've compiled them into a list below. FIRST, though: the moment you've all been waiting for. The drawing of winners, who will be selected via, a random number generator, and picked simply by counting down through the eligible comments (a method I stole--er, borrowed--from the smartypants Greg Pincus and his Pi/Pie contest).

I'll be picking not one, but three winners (heh. pick a winner. HAHAHA! sorry, apparently I am 12 years old).

So, here we go: the winner of a signed copy of Underneath, my newest book, is--

The winner of a signed copy of The Latte Rebellion, my first book, is--
RM1(SS) (ret), aka James

The winner of a Latte Rebellion coffee mug is--

Yay, everyone!! Congratulations! Winners please email me your mailing address and I will pop these in the mail this week. If you want the book signed to a particular person (i.e. yourself, a loved one, a sworn enemy), or not, please let me know.

Thank you all so much, too, for all of your support over these past few busy years--I've known nearly all of you commenters for quite a number of years, either in person and/or online, so you probably know far more about my ups and downs than you really WANT to. I'm thankful for your friendship and kindness--and your collective, collected wisdom:
  • "-- life exists -- and identity -- the powerful play goes on -- and you may contribute a verse" -- Walt Whitman
  • "dyfal donc a dyr y garreg" - "It's a steady tapping that breaks the stone."
  • "There are more things in heaven and earth, {Horatio,}
    Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." -- Hamlet (1.5.166-7)
  • "Gwlad heb iaith, gwlad heb genedl." - "A country without a language is a country without a nation."
  • "If you truly want your 'ship to come in,' don't wait on shore expecting it to steam in past the breakwater and onto the beach. Risk everything, jump in the water and swim out to meet it."
  • "There are two types of ships - submarines and targets."
  • "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
    — Scott Adams
  • "If you love something, set it free.
    If it comes back to you, it's yours.
    If it doesn't, it never was."

Cool! Thanks!

Maybe it would be easiest if you just brought it to Kidlitcon, and I can toast your continued success in person?
