challenge monthHi everyone! So our first ever Reading Challenge Month is wrapping up. I had a wonderful time and I hope you guys did too.

Before I get to the prizes, I just wanted to take a moment to give some big thanks. First off, thank you so much to everyone who commented on the reviews and read along with us over the course of the month. I can’t tell you how much fun I had reading your comments and reviews. I so appreciate you all playing along and the response was really great. We had over 1800 entries over the course of the month. I had no idea what to expect for the inaugural year, but you guys exceeded anything I could have imagined. I hope that even though the event is over, you guys will still stop by and share your comments. I love hearing from you!

I also have to give a big shout out the amazing Joyfully Jay reviewers. They all jumped into this enthusiastically, even though it often meant pushing themselves out of their reading comfort zones. I really appreciate that they all took on not just reading and reviewing, but following along with the comments as well. You guys, my reviewers totally rock and I think they are the best out there.

And of course, a HUGE thanks to our fabulous sponsors. This event wouldn’t have been the same without the amazing prizes. So an enormous thank you to Riptide Publishing, Samhain Publishing, Less Than Three Press, and Dreamspinner Press for all responding so enthusiastically to my request and donating so generously!

Ok, so we had two more prizes to award tonight.

The winner of Favorites List Week and all the amazing books from Samhain Publishing is… Katy Beth McKee
