Winners of Bonus Giveaway

I am writing this post on the brand new laptop computer that was a very welcome Christmas gift from my husband who constantly worried about the fact that it was not healthy for me to sit at the computer desk for such long periods of time.  He wanted me to be able to sit in a softer, more comfortable chair with my feet elevated and still be able to work on my writing.  So, here I sit (recline) in comfort, all thanks to him.  It may take a while to write this post because it isn't easy to get used to the difference in the keyboard after years of using a desktop computer.  However, I promise to persevere long enough to announce the winners' names.

The winners of the bonus giveaway have just been drawn by my devoted husband, the same one who purchased this laptop for me.  Actually, since I have just one husband, it only stands to reason that it is the same one.  I know that I promised the drawing would be held on Christmas evening but it was so late by the time my two sons and their families left and then a visit had been paid to the 92-year-old matriarch of the Newby branch of the family that I felt you would all understand if I waited a few more hours.  So, with no further delays, here are the latest winners:

1st place:  Katy M

2nd place: karenk

3rd place: Julie

Here's how this will work:

I will send an email to each of the three winners.  The first place winner will get her choice of three different books.  Once she has made her choice, the second place winner will get her choice of the two remaining books.  The third place winner will get the final book.

The choices are:

If by chance any of these winners fail to redeem their prize, another name(s) will be drawn until all three books are awarded.  Ozark Weddings is, of course, the book around which this entire contest was centered. The copy being given away is an autographed copy signed by co-author Anita Higman. Denim and Lace is a non-fiction book about friendship and how it can be found in the most unexpected places. Field of Danger is a Steeple Hill Love-Inspired suspense story that was the discussion book several months ago by the ACFW online bookclub. 

Congratulations to the winners!  I only wish it were possible to award even more prizes so that I could let all of you know how much I appreciate your following my blog.  Since that is not feasible, I will just ask you to stick around because another exciting giveaway will be posted very soon. 

Happy New Year and God bless each and every one of you!
