You all amaze me! Thank you!!!! :)
So, I had no idea how I was honestly going to choose the winners this time around. I read through every single comment and realized that I couldn't possibly play favorites! I could always do randomizer, but I was tired of doing that for every giveaway... especially when I'd asked y'all to get personal (which was the first time i'd done that).
So what did I do, you ask? I enlisted help! But before you get mad and think I just ditched y'all for some stranger, you need to know that I recruited one of my best friends, Cat for the job. Some of you probably know her from Facebook and from our private TPGC group online. I knew she was the perfect person for the job!
I told Cat, "you have to read all the comments and pick me 10 winners from fb and 5 from ig. GO!"
She was all, "CHALLENGE ACCEPTED, BITCH!" and she went to work! Now this is why I love Cat... because she's not the type of person who would skim your comments.
She actually read them.
Every single one.
And she chose winners based on reasons and emotions.
I knew she'd do that, which is why I asked for her help. She's amazing and thoughtful and a great friend. SO! Who won? Well, the list is below! With her reasons, no less. HA HA HA
Don't kill me Cat. :)
PS- if your name is on this list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so I can get the SIGNED PAPERBACK out to you! :) Thank you so much for entering, for being passionate about these characters and for always wanting more. You all make my freaking life! :) xox
