Winners and Autographed Book Contest

Tonight, I closed two contests, the mystery contest, and the Holiday Books from Hatchette contest. In the mystery contest, Ann Cleeves' White Nights will go to Betty C. of Omaha, NE. And Elaine Viets' Murder with All the Trimmings will go to Ann C. in Saint Cloud, MN. In the Hatchette Holiday Book Giveaway, Daniel V. from Bethesda, MD won a set of Hanukkah books, and Christmas books will go to Lori B. from Goldsboro, NC, Tiffany S. from Everetts, NC, Elizabeth G. of Huron, OH, and Janice R. from Philadelphia, PA.

This contest will be my last contest of 2008, with the Christmas and New Year's holidays coming up. And, thanks to Liz Zelvin, I'll be mailing the mystery priority, so you could give it as a Christmas gift if you'd like. I'm offering two autographed books, a mystery and a holiday story collection, this week. Death Will Get You Sober is Elizabeth Zelvin's terrific debut mystery. When Bruce Kohler wakes up in a detox on Christmas Day, he knows it's time to change his life. Maybe Kohler will have a reason, when homeless alcoholics start to die unexpectedly. Kohler and his friends know his way around the treatment centers, and may be able to find a killer.

Or, you could win Romancing the Holidays: Love Stories throughout the Year. There are stories for a holiday a month in this romantic anthology. Deborah Shelley, who autographed the book, writes about the Jewish holiday, Purim, for the month of March.

So, a mystery or a romance collection? You can enter twice, once for each book. If you'd like to win one, email me at Email me!. If that link doesn't work for you, the email address is: lholstine@yahoo.com. Your subject line should read either Win "Sober Mystery" or Win "Romancing Holidays". Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.

The contest will end Thursday, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. MT. Jim will draw the winners at that time. The winners will be notified, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!

I was waiting for the paperback of Liz's book, but apparently, we're not going to get one. Too bad.

Lesa said...

That's what Liz said, that there's no paperback. You'll have to enter the contest for this one!
