Winners Winners Everywhere!

Penned by SB Sarah:

Congratulations to Larissa Ione, whose book Ecstasy Unveiled won the 2010 DABWAHA! Larissa will receive a $200 gift certificate from Jane and Sarah for a spa near her home – all the better to relax after all that vote mania!

And big congratulations to the bracket winners!

To bracket champion Pamela Sinclair: an Apple iPad and a $100 GC for ebooks to fill up the new ebook reader from AllRomance eBooks and OmniLit. WOO HOO!

And to the worst bracket: TT Thomas wins for finishing in 845th place, and will receive a selection of books from the Oddshots bloggers, Meljean Brook, Patrice Michelle, Jill Myles, Ilona Andrews and Nalini Singh.

In the Second Chance Tourney, we have prizes to award as well!

Manda Collins wins an Amazon Kindle courtesy of Samhain Publishing.

Tegan Schwartz wins a prize package for being a randomly chosen non-winning bracketologst, and will receive from author Jennifer Estep a $50 Amazon gift card, a copy of Spider's Bite and an e-ARC of Web of Lies – and bookmarks!

And finally, Larissa Ione offered a prize to one of the non-winning brackets who chose her book to final – because she didn’t pick her own book to win the whole show. And so Robyn Bachar will receive a tote bag, a mug, and the first four books in the Demonica series, signed by the author.

Congrats to all the winners, and mad huge heaping props to chief bracketologist and all around badass Jane, who stayed up late and managed the data (and didn’t march to Jersey and kick my ass when I announced the wrong winners). Mad thanks also to Gesina, our Awesome Intern, who helped organize and collect a TON of data, and made this year’s tourney a lot easier – and more fun!

Winners: PLEASE email me at sarahATsmartbitchestrashybooksDOTcom with your mailing address information so we can get your prizes out to you as soon as possible.

Thank you to all of you who entered, to OmniLit and AllRomance eBooks, Samhain Publishing, Jennifer Estep, the Oddshots, Larissa Ione for the prizes, and to all the nominated authors for writing some kickass books.

See you next year for the DABWAHA in 2011!

    Congrats to Larissa for penning the winning book. And congrats to Pamela for the winning bracket, Manda for the second chance bracket, and all the other winners.

    Many thanks to Jane, Sarah, and everyone who made DABWAHA possible this year. I tied for 289th in the main and 106th in the 2nd chance bracket. Oh well, there's always next year – LOL.
