I want to wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
As many of you know, I ran a giveaway that coincided with the blog tour for “Girl Unknown” by Karen Perry. The giveaway, which was open to residents of the United States only as stipulated by the publisher Macmillan, had many entrants.
There were 95 people who ‘liked’ the post; 8 people who commented on the post; 11 people who shared the post on Twitter.
That is 114 people – THEN – I had to discern how many of those people resided in the United States. (Not as easy as you might think – it took almost two hours!) Not everyone puts their country of residence on their WordPress Gravatar, so I had to visit some Goodreads accounts, some blogs, and some Twitter accounts to leave messages. Honestly, if another publisher stipulates a region for a giveaway, I’ll think I’ll pass.
Anyway, to the best of my knowledge, with the information I was able to discover, of those 114 people, only 48 reside in the U.S. So, the chances of winning were 1/48.
Using the website Random Name Picker, I can now announce the lucky winner!
Brenna has a great Crochet blog, and she is a follower of Fictionophile and an avid reader from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
If anyone is interested in the results of the polls I posted last Friday, here are the results as of today…
I am VERY pleased with this result. I try to make a habit of sharing other blogger’s posts and re-tweeting, yet I only seldom actually write a Thank-you tweet. I do suffer some guilt over this practice, but now I know that I can do so with an easier conscience.
This result surprised me twice!
- I thought the Cover Love posts would win out, but to my delight Book Reviews won by a good margin. Wonderful considering that book reviews are what my blog is all about.
- I thought that others would enjoy the Author Interviews, but they didn’t get a single vote!
Thanks SO much to everyone who voted and commented on Friday’s post.
As always, I appreciate your patronage and hope you’ll stick around as Fictionophile continues to evolve.
