And The Winners Are . . .


krbiwasaka and Ruthie are the lucky recipients of a brand new copy of Larry Levin's Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love, a heartwarming tale of a former bait dog who overcame the odds to live and find a family to love.

Congratulations, kriwasaka and Ruthie! If you will forward me your mailing address, I will see that your new book gets out to you.

Thank you to all who visited my blog and entered this giveaway. I do appreciate each one of you taking the time to visit and post here. I hope you will stick around for future giveaways, reviews and interviews.   And be sure to check back in the next week or so, when I will have my review of Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love up. 

Thank you again to Anna Balasi and the Hachette Book Group for making this giveaway possible.

Compliments to for selecting the lucky winners.

And now a question to my loyal readers . . .

During this giveaway, a reader mentioned that she did not believe it was appropriate to have posters' email addresses where they could be seen by any and all (as one of my requirements is I have an email address to contact the winner(s)).  The alternative to not requring an email address with the entry would be for the winner(s) to contact me within a certain number of days after the winning post is made (and if the winner does not contact me within the predetermined amount of days, a new winner selected).

I have seen it done both ways on different blogs.  What do you think?

I do get the whole email thing and not wanting to show it, but I have tried just announcing the winner, and they haven't gotten in touch. Therefore I want an email so I can reach the. If they don't want to write it there, then I have the option that they can email me their entry

I have wordpress and I use a plugin which picks winners for me - and provides me with their email addresses. It's funny though, I tell people there is no need to leave their email address, but they do it anyway - they are so used to doing it.

Also - some people sign up for a spam-type email account so if someone does get ahold of their email address, they won't be mad.
