Winners of the ACE/ROC & BERKLEY/JOVE Holiday Giveaway

First off, special thanks to Anne Soward of ACE/ROC and Cindy Hwang of Berkley/Jove who enabled us to give away nearly fifty books to Dear Author readers. There are some great books   coming out of these houses in the next few months (I’ve read Nalini Singh’s February release four, maybe five times, already) and I’m excited that others will get the opportunity to read these books in advance of publication.

I was able to hunt up one more ARC to giveaway and Monca Burns, author of Kismet, contacted me to give away one of her personal ARCs.

We will be mailing the books out next week. Given that it is the holidays, our mail might be a little slower but please, if more than two weeks have passed, email me (jane at because mishaps can happen. I would much rather have an opportunity to make things right for readers than have you not contact me about a missed book.

Without further ado, the winners are as follows. All winners have been emailed.

    Oh, crazy – the pingback from my mentioning the contest on my blog won. Hmm. That pingback probably doesn’t have a valid email address. Interesting. Um, feel free to select someone else! I didn’t mean to enter the contest. :)

    This is so exciting! I never win anything either, so I wasn’t expecting it. Maybe my bad luck is changing. It’s time to play the lottery ;-) Congrats to all the other winners as well. Thank you so much!
