Giveaway Winners

Well, hello, everyone! It feels like an age since last I was blogging around here - and it actually has been! I haven't reviewed anything for a while (is it weird that I've missed that!?), but I was excited to be able to announce the giveaway winners today - plus it's a convenient excuse to use this annoyingly(look too long and seriously, one gets dizzy!) but fun and amusing gif.
If you want to check up on the latest reviews, they are:
- The Wishing Tree by Marybeth Whalen
- Small Town Girl by Ann Gabhart
- Love's Reckoning by Laura Frantz (more INSPY reading)
- Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
- The Breath of Dawn by Kristen Heitzman
- Jack the Giant Slayer starring Nicholas Hoult
...and now since I've built sufficient suspense and review links are really not why you are dropping by, the giveaway winners are...
Drumroll please...
Dawn J.
winner of Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden
Kara (of Flowers of Quiet Happiness)
winner of The Breath of Dawn by Kristen Heitzmann
KayleeBeth S. (@sparkle_sista)
winner of My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade
CONGRATS to you all!
Each of you should have emails in your inbox requesting either a U.S. or Canadian address where you'd like your books sent. I've asked that you respond to that by the 12th of July and also that in consideration for all of the participants that if for any reason you own a print copy of the book you've won, you let me know.
Thank you EVERYONE who entered or participated in any way by sharing about the giveaways on Twitter. It was a lot of fun and I am the winners of these three books. There are plans for another giveaway or two later this fall, so do be on the lookout and while I am talking about future giveaways, I will just ask in future that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave a name (the name you enter under) - it's not nearly as easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it and don't - believe it or not, there've been a couple people that I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it!
Happy Monday, everyone!

Have a thought? Don't be shy, go ahead and leave one... or two... or three! I reply to every comment. If you're new to the blog, please don't hesitate to introduce yourself and your blog - we love chatting around here!

Feedback and every comment is appreciated and read - I always leave a response; your opinions are respected and I ask that you show mine the same courtesy.

(If you post under “anonymous,” please leave a name. If you don't have a Google account, you can type your name into the Name/URL and if you have no site, just leave "URL" blank.)
