DAY 6 of the 12 Day Holiday Hootenanny!

So tonight I enlisted the help of both Taylor the Wonder Dog and the merry elves. We took those names, shook ’em up in the bag, shook ’em up again, then two more times, and ta-da! THE WINNERS!

1. Catherine Friend, “A Pirate’s Heart”–Allie

2. Paula Offutt, “Butch Girls Can Fix Anything”–Cam

3. Chris Paynter, “Playing for First”–booasaur

4. Moondancer Drake, “Ancestral Magic”–Hera

Thanks, all, for playing. Tomorrow’s another day, and we’ve got FIVE authors lined up! Count ’em! FIVE! WOOOOO!

Oh, STOP! Girl, it is ONGOING, the fiesta de los libros! You’ve made it to the halfway point! To DAY 6 of our festivities here at Women and Words! We’re so excited to do this and many, many thanks to all the authors who donated books to get in on the fun.

Today’s offerings are listed below, in the order they’ll be given away. So the first name we draw will win Catherine Friend’s book, the second will win Paula Offutt’s book, and so on.
