Above and Beyond!


Wow! You guys went above and beyond. My original goal had been $500 and you guys came through in such a phenomenal way that not only did we meet that goal, but we beat it! Thank you SO much! I am ecstatic to tell you that together we raised $521 for the Edmonton Food Bank. Because the food bank has some awesome buying power and is able to stretch each penny they receive to incredibly lengths that $521 works out to 1563 meals for hungry people!

This makes me so proud, I hope you feel it too.

Whatever you did to contribute — donate, spread the word, whatever — thank you. Thank you so much <3

As part of this blog tour I was offering a giveaway of a crocheted throw. Rafflecopter has chosen the winner and it is:

I’ve emailed you, so if you didn’t get it, check your spam filter.

Everyone else gets a prize too though! I said if we reached our $500 goal I’d throw something else into the prize pot. After giving it some thought I’ve decided to give out a couple paperback books to two more random winners. I let the Rafflecopter choose them and it picked Emeryl and Leslie V. You guys should also check your email 😉

In addition I held a separate far less technical draw (where I had Danica’s friend she was skyping with pick a number LoL) to choose the winner of the draw for hosting our cover reveal, and the winner was Steve Bornstein. Steve, Lori, Ana and Marlene you will all receive an ARC of A is for Apocalypse 🙂

I will email all the winners tomorrow (it’s a long weekend here so I’m loathe to be at the computer more than I have to be LOL). If you didn’t win and you’d like another chance, be sure and subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when A is for Apocalypse is available. I will also notify that mailing list of any future giveaways.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this cover reveal, whether by hosting, signal boosting or stopping by to take a peek and toss your name in the hat. It wouldn’t have been the same without you 🙂
