Well, my first official giveaway has now come to a close. The winners have been chosen. For category #1, you had to name your favourite historical figure and tell me why. For category #2, you had to name your favourite book and tell me why. Since I love history, I chose the winner in category #1. So, drumroll please.
The winner is Erin for her comment about poor Lady Jane Grey:
My favorite historical figure is Lady Jane Grey. I’ve always felt bad for the fact that she was unwillingly made to be queen and then betrayed and executed such a short time later. Now I wish that she wasn’t always so overlooked by history. Most people don’t know who she is, or that she was handpicked by Edward VI to be queen, and nobody ever seems to wonder why he might have done that.
Since Michelle Hansen is an author and she is the one offering up a prize pack, she picked the winner in category #2.
The winner is James Wymore for his comment about Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut.
Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut is my favorite book. It was the one I read that made me want to write books that meant something to people.
Winners, I have given your email addresses to Michelle and she will contact you soon about your prize packs. Congratulations on winning and thank you to everyone who entered and tweeted about my first giveaway. There will be more giveaways in the future, I can promise you that.
