December Debut and SECOND EVER Original Sin ARC winner!

Happy 2011 everyone! Hope your New Year has gotten off to a bang!

Mine started with this: 

That’s an envelope that was delivered by UPS onto my front steps while I was away. Had they left it on the actual front porch, which has an overhang, it would have stayed dry, but I guess that was too much to hope for. So it was very, very wet. And so was everything inside, which turned out to be my Polish contracts. O_O

They are now very wrinkly—and that’s after I dried and ironed them. I hope my lovely Polish publisher won’t hold it against me.

What was not on my porch was my box of Original Sin ARCs =( I was expecting it to be there when I got home on Thursday, and now I’m a little worried they’re off in post-holiday UPS limbo-land somewhere. Fingers crossed that they get here sometime today.

So much for all my UPS related lamenting. Now for the reason you’re all here: BOOKS! One of those lost-in-transition ARCs was up for grabs along with a copy of Personal Demons, in my December Debut Contest. Thanks for all your enthusiasm! There were so many entries I broke the randomizer! (Kidding—but there were a lot!) This is a little bit sad for me, because it’s no longer my debut year, so December’s contest is my very last Debut Contest. I’ve had fun running my monthly contests, and will have plenty this year too, but the Debut Contest are special to me, and I’ll miss sponsoring them.

So, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

The winner of the December Debut and Second Ever Original Sin ARC Contest is:

Tawni Ann!!!
