Giveaway Winnerrrrs

Giveaway is OVER, and lots of nice people commented, and lots of nice people re-tweeted, and lots of nice people said nice things, and nobody really cares so I'm just going announce the winners now....


Winner of the ARC is:  



That was totally your reaction. Right? Right??? Ok, perhaps not, but I really hope you like ze book. :)

The winner of the first bundle of Swiss chocolate is: _annabelleh_!

Winner of the second bundle of Swiss chocolate is: Danielle Pioli!

And since I got over fifty entrants I had to scurry for that copy of Long Lankin, and that goes to: Sara @ The Hiding Spot!

Now. Clarification. Is an order. Because. As not one, but TWO friends pointed out, there may have been some confusion as to who gets what of the things listed in the giveaway post. One friend thought she would get ALL THE THINGS if she won, and 3 (or 4) others would get all those things as well.

And I was like, "Whaaaat, how could you think this?!" And then I was like, "Oh."

Yeah. Apparently it could be construed that I was giving all those things to four different people. But I don't have enough ARCs for that, you know? I kind of wish I did, because I would want to give one to every person who commented. But I got five, and one went to my Mom, and two will be passed around 'in perpetuum' until my real-life friends have all read it, and one I'm giving away, and one I'm keeping for safety's sake. (I mean, what if J.K. Rowling wants a copy? WHAT THEN, HMM?)

Then she will rip stuff up until she gets a copy. She won't be asking you for one.

Shh, you.

But I am sorry the post wasn't clear, and just in case the ARC winner gets her package and is all like, "WHAT THE HACK, WHERE'S MY CHOCOLATE!?! *throws shiny ARC in garbage* I'm including chocolate in hers too.

All good? Gry-eet.

So congrats to the winners, and I will contact them right this very moment and then start writing those kitschy Swiss postcards.

    Grrr, Stefannnnnn. That pass-along ARC better come to me FIRST. >:( With chocolate. >:( And a kitschy Swiss postcard. >:( Or I shall cry.

    Also, that gif made me yuck it up HYSTERICALLY. *squeezeh*

  2. Congratulations to all the winners! *devises a plan that in August she sneaks into your house like Santa Claus and steals your JK-Rowling-special ARC* (I kid.) Again... congratulations to all the winners and enjoy Swiss chocolates (they are amazing) and reading a great book early! :-)

  3. Etienne. Hers has no apostrophe. Never has. How dare you? You are not the right person to reinvent the English language.

  4. @Briony The Peeved: Yuck it up? Yuck it UP??? Bri, you are sixty years old and a hippy, right? Ok. Just making sure...

    *squeezehs back*

    @Rachel: Haha! J.K.Rowling will SURELY have collected her ARC by AUGUST. I'm expecting a call any moment now.


    I kid too. But donnnn't tryyy the chimney! You won't fit! Only birds fit in the chimney and they have the habit of dying there, poor things.

    @Beastie: ACK! You must tell me these things *before* the post has been up for hours and hours, and viewed by frightening numbers of people. *run and corrects* But thanka. :)

  5. Wait! I get chocolate TOO! BEST DAY EVER! Or, at least, the day when it arrives will be the best. haha


    1. P.S. The Peculiar totally comes out 4 days before my birthday. :) It was fate.

    2. Haha! RATS! I should have made that kitschy Swiss postcard a four-month-early birthday card. Ah well.


  6. Not fairrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    1. There there, Amber. Just think, the book you're getting will be COPYEDITED. And you may have no clue what that means, but it's a REALLY GOOD THING. ;)

  7. Thanks, Stefan! :) Can't wait to read Long Lankin!

    1. You're welcome! :) It's soooo good and creepy.
