"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


And the winner is....

I don't think I have EVER gotten more comments on a post than I did for this here contest celebrating my 10 years of salvation! (maybe I'm just not popular unless I'm giving something away LOL - and I just checked. This was my SECOND highest post count. The top post-getter, with 35, was ALSO a giveaway LOL) Regardless, I'm awful impressed with thirty responses - I hope my testimony was encouraging to you. Your comments certainly encouraged me.

I chose to use www.random.com to determine my winner (and no, Beth, you did NOT get two chances! hehe). So, the winner of Women of Passions: Ordinary Women Serving an Extraordinary God is:

Marita Thelander

Congratulations, Mari! I'll get it out to you as soon as I get your address (either from you or Laury)!

Thanks, all for participating in my giveaway - and even if you didn't win, you can always pick the book up :D (yeah, I'm a BIT of a publicist LOL). Just click on the graphic below.

Thanks again, folks!

  2. Congrats Mari! I am so bummed, but will be a cheerful friend (lol). :o)

  3. Thanks Jo. I look forward to getting the book, but honest, i didnt even pay attention to teh fact that you were giving away a book. I just happened to actually get to read a couple blogs that day. *blush*
