...and now the winners...

After the party the team retired, bleary-eyed and blissful, to an undisclosed location where my writer-buddy Vaughn picked the two winners of signed copies of Café au Lait out of a hat.

Here he is with his first pick...


We have a winner!


...and another!


Congratulations, PJ and Jason! I'll be mailing those copies off to you pronto, and I hope you enjoy the read! PJ, by the way, is a blog buddy who hails from the UK and can be found at her eclectic, entertaining and thoughtful blog, The Urban Recluse. Jason Evans' blog, The Clarity of Night, is a virtual campfire for those who appreciate truly beautiful words and images. Go see for yourself!

Thank you, everyone, for joining in the fun. It's been a blast!

You're welcome, PJ! It's my pleasure!

congrats to the winners :-)
undisclosed location for much needed coffee...:-) can't wait to read the book, you will understand if it takes me a little bit to read for pleasure - I am a little inundated with writing for work right now.

wordtryst said...

Chennette, you recognize that coffee place, don't you!

My reading is on hiatus right now too, what with the day job and the demands of promoting this book (September is promo month for me). The edits to novel #2 are languishing once again as a result - so I know whereof you speak!

JJ said...

Congratulations to the winners. I can't wait to receive my copy. Good luck with all the promo this month. Let us know how it goes.

Chumplet said...

Congrats to the winners! I guess I have to get my copy the old fashioned way.

I'll look out for it on Chapters bookshelves and take a picture of it for you, Liane.

Thanks so much for the contest!

Transparency International would be proud :)

Congratulations to the winners!!

Flowerpot said...

congrats to everyone and I look forward to reading it anyway!

jendar said...

I missed the party...Oh well...I'm looking forward to reading your book! I wonder at your choice of "hunk of the month" though...Shouldn't it be Willem Dafoe? Hello? And not just for one month but how about hunk of the year?

I hope you had a great party.

Are you planning any kind of book tour?

KeVin K. said...

Congrats, kid. Wish I could have been at the party. I'm really looking forward to reading this one. (Remember to include Wilmington on your promotional tour.)

SpiralSkies said...

Off to Amazon it is for my copy then. I was going to mind a little bit but then I saw the pictures of Vaughn and cheered up immensely!

wordtryst said...

JJ, I'll be sure to keep you updated.

Sorry, Chumplet. Maybe another time... Oh, I'd LOVE to have a picture of the book IN A BOOKSTORE!

Jason, congratulations! I'm off to e-mail you and PJ now...

akalol, :) With Vaughn around I couldn't cheat if I wanted to!

Flowerpot, hope you enjoy it! (We all need a dose of escapism sometimes.)

Jendar! Nice to see you over here, fellow Willem Dafoe fan! I've been tempted to post him but I suspect that most people would say: Wha! He's not exactly a hunk, is he? Just very sexy in his own twisted way.

nyc/caribbean, it was fabulous! No book tours in the offing - so far anyway.

Kevin, Wilmington it is! (Well, I live in hope...)

Spiralskies, I think you just made Vaughn's day. Probably his week. Nah, his year!

Pacha said...

NOOOOOOOOOOO! NOOOOOOOOOO! I HAD to win! What went wrong???? *sob* I shall go immediately to order your book now then!!! Soooooo looking forward to a good read!

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

OMG Vaughn is GORGEOUS!!!

Um. Sorry. Couldn't help myself. Er, what I mean to say is, congratulations to the winners, jolly well done.

wordtryst said...

Zinnia! **snort!!!** Come on now, you'll swell that man's head! :)

Spiralskies made his day yesterday, and now you'll have him putting on airs around here. I'll have to think of a good put down just to get him back on an even keel! :)

Debs said...

Congrats to the winners.

My copy should be arriving soon (thanks to Amazon) and I can't wait.

BarbaraS said...

Hey, congrats to PJ and Jason Evans - I hope you guys enjoy the book.

So, when's the next party...? To celebrate the selling out of your new book, maybe..? :)

jendar said...

Well I finally ordered the book at Barnes & Noble. I should get it by next weekend. Can't wait to read it! (Just need to find the time)...

wordtryst said...

Debs, thanks for all the support, and I hope you enjoy the read!

BarbaraS, I'm working on that one... ;)

Jen, you've been great! Thanks for supporting the cause, and you know I'll do the same when your turn comes around!
