The DA Intro Interview has some prizes to distribute.   If you’re a winner, send your post info to DAintrointerview AT gmail DOT com.

Going way back to June’s  interview with Beverley Eikli, commenters offered guesses about the meaning of the book’s title.   Beverley enjoyed everyone’s creativity, and  Evie Byrne guessed  Lady Farquhar’s Butterfly was a navigation instrument.   Well, not exactly, but your fun and original idea gets you the book, Evie!

Next up, the RWA Rita Best First Book nominees give us a whole list of winners:

Kelly C.:   He Calls Her DocDiane N: The GladiatorDonna S:   Stolen FuryIvy:   The Last Will of Moira LeahyStacy S: One Scream Away (this one got the Rita)Sara C: The Better Part of DarknessJanine:   Nothing Like YouBella F: Angel Vindicated

And most recently, lots of hands went up for a copy of  M.K. Hobson’s  The Native Star.   Susan R, you got it!

Thanks to all the authors for their great interviews, and congratulations to all the prize winners.

    Why is there a 2000 pixel wide (broken) image above this post?

    @veinglory: I don’t see what you are seeing but if there is one, it’s because I intentionally inserted it to mess up your computer screen.

    @veinglory Well, it was intentional on my part. Although I’m not sure how it got to be such a huge blank image. The Amazon assoc link includes a small blank image and something within wordpress must have blown that up to an unimaginable size.
