You know how much I hate picking the winners of the giveaways, right? Because I want everyone to win. For me, it's torture not to be able to get the books into everyone's hands. I was really feeling the pain with the Ice Giveaway, because what you all wrote about your writing and life landmarks was so great.
Well, tonight I took a hard look at the promo budget for Rebel Ice, and there's just enough left in there to cover what I was thinking about doing. Plus I've always wanted to do this for one of my novels on the weblog, and we should celebrate all of our landmarks once.
So the winners for the Ice Giveaway are:
Everyone who participated.
Now, I need all 61 winners to e-mail me at LynnViehl@aol.com, and send your full name and the address where you want me to send the book. It will take me a few more days to get the extra books, sign, package and get them all out, but I figure you'll be okay with that.
Congratulations to everyone.

Congradulations to all the other winners!
You are indeed a sterling individual. I appreciated the chance to try to win one, and I appreciate winning one even more!ReplyDelete
That is just about the nicest thing I've ever heard of. Thank you so much!ReplyDelete
I guess I do get to count this as a landmark afterall.
That is so wonderful, Sheila! You are very generous to your readers, indeed. I didn't join in on this one because I've won twice and I wanted someone else to win, Since only with your contests do I have any luck at all. :PReplyDelete
Congrats to everyone.ReplyDelete

BTW, I assume 20 Question Friday is on.Last week you said,ReplyDelete
"Whatever genre I write, I start with characters. World building is serious fun, but if the characters aren't there first, I can't see their world through their eyes."
I've always seen the world built first. How does your way change world building? Give some examples if you can.
Thanks, PBW. That's almost too generous of you, but I'll take the book anyway. Thanks again.ReplyDelete

Since I won't be taking one away from someone else, I'll be happy to win a signed copy. And I'll pass the one I bought along to someone who'd love to have it. Thanks, Sheila. :)ReplyDelete
That's fantastic! I've been hungry for another of your novels ever since I read BLADE DANCER.ReplyDelete
Wow. I don't know which to believe - your generosity or my good luck. Thanks!!ReplyDelete
I think I will follow in Mama Rose's footsteps. I will just have to buy one first. Well, two because my kids are not getting their hands on this one.

I'm so getting books 2-5 of the Stardoc series now to have it complete. :-)
Thank you, Sheila. You continue to amaze me.ReplyDelete
Oh, and if this is your best effort to drive your blog readers off, may I suggest you're failing miserably?
You're the greatest.ReplyDelete
I'm with Gabriele -- I'm just finishing the first StarDoc. Is there a Spark Notes for the series, so I can catch up quickly?
Thank you... Your work inspires us all and gives me, at least, a benchmark to aspire to.ReplyDelete
This officially makes you the World's Coolest Person. Oh, wait, Keith Richards is still alive, so you'll have to World's Second Coolest Person for a while. ;)ReplyDelete
