Surprisingly, about half of the winners from Dianne's party never got in touch. I'm naming replacement winners and will give another three days (Thursday 9 pm) to contact me at . Here the new winners:

flip/Lori Foster
principessa/Erin McCarthy
sandyy456/Luann McLane
tina/Toni Blake
blackroze37/FAR goodie package
katie b/JC Wilder
valerie/Alison Kent
danette/Janice Maynard
barb v/Karen Kelley
littlelamblost/Sasha White
laura j/Laurie (Lady & Sons coffee mug)

Update: I would remind everyone to check back this evening - I've only heard from about ten of the winners - any winner who doesn't email me by 9:00 tonight will forfeit and I'll draw another name.

Are you all ready? Here you go - winner's names and the author's name whose prize they've won. Winners have until Monday evening to get in touch with me at with their names and addresses. I will provide your information to the author whose prize you've won. If I fail to hear from a winner by then, I'll redraw for that prize at 9 p.m.

barbara jo/Jill Shalvis
consie/Lori Foster
rebeca/Erin McCarthy
judy f/Sylvia Day

There they are! Congratulations to all of the winners, and huge thanks to all of the authors who donated prizes for the party. Thanks also to Dianne for spending yesterday and today with us - I hope you'll all rush out and order HOT AND BOTHERED!

That's too bad about the original winners not getting in touch with you Laurie, but nice chance for the new ones. :)

Laurie D. said...

You know Dina, I was thinking the same thing! So far I've heard from three of the new winners. We'll see what happens!

Dina said...

Not everyone checks back after they enter a contest I've noticed, I know that I like the blogs now since finding them and visit regularly, that's how I found out I won Dianne's book, could have missed out.

flchen1 said...

Congrats, new winners! And thanks again for such a fun time with Dianne, Laurie--you're the best!

Look for a review for Sylvia Day's DON'T TEMPT ME in the next couple of days. It's a wonderfully rich historical that I highly recommend!

Thanks so much, everyone, for stopping - I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Hey Laurie,

Thanks for double-checking, though!
