Thanks to every single one of you who has entered the OMG! All the Books! giveaway. Over the course of 24 days, we have had 1462 entries, with an average of 61 entrants per day. Your answers to our questions have been so generous, running the gamut from funny, to tragic, to wise – and everything in between. The authors participating have loved reading your feedback; more than one has admitted to getting teary-eyed by what you shared with them. It’s been my great honor, in this crazy time leading up to the publication of Bittersweet, to host such a fabulous community of writers and readers; my hope is that all of you learned about at least one new book that you’ve now added to your summer list!
How can we keep supporting each other as readers and writers? Buy one of the books that caught your eye during this giveaway! Review it on Goodreads and Amazon! If you love it, tell your friends! Follow that book’s author on Twitter or like their Facebook page! Engage with them by emailing or tweeting! Let’s keep up this enthusiastic community by continuing on in the spirit in which it began.
Below you’ll find the list of the winners of our daily giveaways, and then (drumroll please!) the name of our grand prize winner, the lucky devil who has won ALL 24 BOOKS! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!!! Ten runners-up have each won a signed, first edition of Bittersweet, thanks to the generosity of my publisher, Crown. You’ll see their names below too! (If the grand prize winner and any of the ten runners-up do not claim their books within 48 hours, we will draw alternate names).
Thanks again, especially to Dan Blank for doing so much work on the logistical end of things to keep this whole thing running, and Julia Fierro for being, as Brian Gresko calls her, “the mother of Brooklyn’s literary dragons.” I’m so lucky to count them both as friends and colleagues.
And now, without further ado, here are our winners!!!
Our individual winners have come from far and wide (and from 13 different states!):
