This month my website celebrated two years of existence, so I decided to thank my readers by giving away a couple of autographed copies of Devil’s Nightmare and a $20 Amazon gift card. There were 13 eligible comments on my Two-Year Anniversary Giveaway post. I used a very sophisticated and highly technically advanced process in order to select the two lucky winners of the autographed copies of Devil’s Nightmare and $20 gift card.
First, I had to compile the data with patented and very efficient data mining tools.
Then, I had to filter and separate all of that information in preparation for the very high-tech process of actually selecting my two winners.
After the filtering and separation process I needed to apply some very specialized encryption techniques prior to the drawing.
As soon as I had all of my data entered, filtered, encrypted and processed, all of the entries needed to be stored for safekeeping until it was time for the drawing.
Then it was time for the actual drawing. Sure, I could have used Random.org, but what would have been the fun in that? So, I utilized a secret third party selection agency. Here is a photo of that third party agent (Agent Mom) on the USS Lexington.
And the winners are Beau Brown and @RescueCherry:
Both winners have already been contacted and their books will be shipped via snail mail within the week. But wait! There was also a $20 Amazon gift card up for grabs. After another drawing (utilizing the same high-tech and patented selection process) I had Agent Mom draw the winner . . .
@WriterGirl007 is the lucky winner of the $20 Amazon gift card! Sending the gift card was easy too since Amazon also has a very high-tech way of doing so via email, although they don’t have anything on my system. Yeah, Amazon could probably learn a thing or two from my groundbreaking contest winner selection system.
Congratulations to Beau Brown and Sheri M. (a.k.a. @RescueCherry) for winning the autographed books. I hope you enjoy reading Devil’s Nightmare! And congratulations to WriterGirl007 for winning the $20 gift card (who decided to buy both of my books) . Enjoy!
There will be other giveaways in the future, so be sure to to follow this site or subscribe via email (sidebar to the left) for future announcements.
Have a safe Memorial Day!
