ARC Winners

I have to sit down and tally up votes* for the Darkyn book five protagonist pitches (and I appreciate the many interesting comments -- much for me to ponder now), but in the meantime, the names of the Dark Need ARC winners are:

Shiloh Walker

Diane McConnell



Jaye Patrick

Winners, please e-mail your full name and ship-to address to so I can get these books out to you. As always, I won't use your information for any other reason or purpose.

My thanks to everyone who participated, and do stay tuned for another DN giveaway in May -- next time I'll do some signed sets of all three Darkyn novels plus a surprise.

*Tallied results: John Keller came in as #1 choice of protagonist for book five, with Valentin** in second, and Jamys third (Locksley came in a very respectable fourth), so I'll work up pitches on John, Valentin, and Jamys. This does not totally eliminate the other characters, either; once I see the initial numbers for Dark Need I'll have a better idea of what I'm going to do with the series next year.

**His name is Valentin, btw, not Valentine. As usual I missed the typo.
