We Have some WINNERS!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  

Today was good food & good times.

A few laughs...

Some hugs...

A little clowning around...

And my son saying he wants a $5 royalty check for each time his name is mentioned in the book.  He's so silly!

So I got the kiddies together to do our book drawing and we decided to draw 6 winners instead of 5...  just so each of them would have the same amount to draw.  Here are the results:

Congratulations!  I will be sending you all a free copy of Gracie's Diary.

Now if you could email me at your addresses, I will get your books out ASAP!
