We've got a winner!

Remember the Jeff Rivera interview? Well, I got a package in the mail on Friday and it's the prize: a copy of his debut novel Forever My Lady for one lucky person who commented on the post! And there's a copy for me too! :)

Out came my mother's hat again and in went the names. (Vaughn, writer-friend, fair-play enforcer and all-round PITA, was not around to monitor proceedings this time, but I'm willing to be audited by Transparency Int'l. :)

Debs, the book is yours. Drop me a line (my e-mail is in the sidebar) with a name and address so I can mail you your prize!

In other news, if anyone wants my copy of Delta of Venus by Anaïs Nin I'll mail it to you (my treat). It's hard cover, beautiful condition, dust jacket like new. I haven't even written my name in - which is something I usually do with a flourish as soon as I get a new book. Why am I giving it away? I don't want anything with people scr**ing corpses in my home. Call me squeamish, call me anything you like, but take it please. Just e-mail me a name and delivery address.

Oh Liane, I am chuckling. You made that copy of Delta of Venus sound SO attractive. I just bet you'll be inundated with requests for that book!

Flowerpot said...

No I don't fancy that either!!

JJ, Flowerpot, I don't blame you!

I have to let people know what they're in for. I'm hoping someone will want it since it's considered a classic of the erotica genre. I know some people have a stronger constitution than mine and might want it for research purposes, while others might actually enjoy it. ;)

Um, I'll take it off your hands. It's been on my to read list for a while, though your hint about its content is rather disquieting.

wordtryst said...

You got it, PJ. I've got your info so I'll mail it out some time this week. Let me know what you think when you read it.

Eurgh. glad you've found a home for it though.

And well done Debs!

Debs said...

I'm so excited to have one a copy of Forever My Lady and will email you my details immediately.

Thank you.

First I lost the lotto to someone in Maraval, and now this. When will it end :)

Congratulations to the winner :)

Lane, I'm happy to wave that one goodbye!

Debs, I mailed it today. You should get it in a week or so - at least that's what TT Post told me. I'd say two weeks to be on the safe side. (I've never mailed anything to your island before. Hope to visit there some day.)

Stephe, maybe next time there's a giveaway here you'll get lucky!

akalol, that $16 M would have come in useful, what with the obscene rise in food prices here...! :) Don't know how I'm supposed to win when I never remember to get tickets, though. Daydreaming alone won't cut it!
