Last week was a pretty AMAZING week for me, so before I announce the winner of my Australia Day Blog Hop giveaway, I just wanted to share with anyone who missed out, Booktopia’s Australia’a Favourite Novelist Top Ten.
I’d been watching the countdown since the first heats and the competition was stiff. Not only was I up against some hugely popular big name Australian authors, there was also a fabulous showing of Aussie romance peeps – many of whom I know and love. So, imagine my surprise – read SERIOUSLY GOBSMACKING SURPRISE – when I clicked on the blog on Friday morning to find out I had ranked NUMBER 10!! I’d been so certain when I wasn’t in 41-50, that I must have been in the 51 – 75 they weren’t announcing. My hubby had patted me on the back and said, “Never mind wifey. You do only have a few books out.”
I want to take this quick moment to thank anyone who voted for me. And thanks also to my publisher Harlequin Australia for getting behind me and posting about the voting on Facebook. I’m sure that helped.
Still on a high, I really wish that I could give every single person who entered my Australia Day Blog Hop giveaway a book, unfortunately I’m not that well off 😦 Thankfully, Random.org is a fabulous site that takes the pressure off me choosing a winner. I had a whopping EIGHTY entries, which is just fabulous!
So without further ado, the winner is:
Unfortunately Jess didn’t leave an email address, so Jess, if you’re reading this, please email me at Rachaeljohns077 @ gmail dot com and we’ll work out getting your prize pack to you! If I don’t hear from Jess by Thursday midnight, I’ll draw again.
