there were 1180 entries for the first book giveaway and a winner was chosen at random, via a random number generator at random.org.
comment #532 is the winner, and that comment was left by heidi b. in california. we’ve already been in contact and i’ll be shipping her book out tomorrow.
i’ve been thinking about how to conduct the rest of the giveaways, and i really don’t want to require you to have to leave another comment each week, so what i’ve decided to do is make it a cumulative thing. basically, if you’ve left a comment in a previous week, you are eligible to win any of the subsequent giveaways. but if you want to increase your chances, you can leave a comment on the latest giveaway (one per week only, please). this gives everyone a chance to win each week, and doesn’t require that you have leave a comment each week (unless you want to).
as i mentioned the first time around, the giveaway will open each friday (whenever i get the blog post up) and close each tuesday at 12:01am pacific time.
the next giveaway starts this friday, march 11th.
thanks for all the comments!
