I Have a Winner!

Please excuse this tiny deviation from our regularly scheduled Colorado Author Monday (which will be on Tuesday this week), so I may announce the winner of my first drawing for a signed hardcover copy of The Desert Hedge Murders:

Paul David Brazill
Poland

It appears Mr. Brazill is a fan and author of noir, so I hope he has a sense of humor. The Desert Hedge Murders sits at the extreme other end of the crime genre. Readers are cautioned not to take it seriously.

However, I like the idea that my book will soon be on its way to Poland. I also had an entry from British Columbia, as well as entries from six states. Thanks to everyone who participated. And just to show you how much I appreciate your entries, those who did not win are automatically entered in the second drawing which I will announce on Wednesday.

Well, I was hoping it would be me! It is great, however, that you're attracting international fans.

Patricia Stoltey said...

That makes it extra fun, Jane. With the first book I wanted to make sure my book had a couple of international readers so I sent one to a cousin in Norway and another to English friends who live in France.

Anyway, stay tuned for the next drawing. You're already entered.

Poland! That's cool. Congrats to Paul. I'm half-done your novel and laughing out loud, while reading and enjoying it!

Well, darn. Thanks for considering a second drawing, though.

It's always fun to know your book is a "world traveler".

Now your audience is truly international! Great news, Patricia. So if it's Tuesday in Colorado, what day is it in Poland? - to mangle an old joke.

Congrats to Paul! Too bad it wasn't me, though. :)

Great stuff! I'm pleased as punch and look forward to reading the book. I DO like a laugh - I'm a Runyon/Wodehouse man too! Cheers.Paul

Well done, Paul.
Though I'm not sure whether you've been randomly drawn out or you've submitted a 'drawing', but Congrats anyway!
And, Patricia, good luck with book 2 - it sounds like fun!

This Col Bury dude must be a Brit -- they always have a tough time understanding us Americans cause we talk all weird-like. LOL

Paul Brazill said...

Yep! He's from Manchester and the editor of the ezine Thrillers Killers n Chillers as well as being a fine writer.

Col Bury said...

LOL, Patricia (but you do have a point!).

Paul - I'm blushing.
