Some very nice news came in since the Christy Otto book giveaway post went up. A reader who wishes to remain anonymous has very generously chosen to donate copies of one of Christy Otto’s books of artwork to the first 50 people who left comments on the previous Q&A post. Call it an early Christmas gift in appreciation to the readers here. Wow!
Below you’ll find the first 50 people going by time stamps on your comments.
So if you’re in this group, please send your address in to me [ewesner[at]gmail[dot]com] and I’ll get that over to Christy so you can have your book mailed out:
Annie Joetta Mailman
Mary at Blue Door
Barbara Bamberger Scott
Al in Ky
Kelly Di Pari
And much gratitude goes out to the reader who is paying for this. I’d love to acknowledge him publicly but will of course honor his wish to stay anonymous. Thank you!
Giveaway for remaining commenters
So if you’re not in the first 50, we’re still going to do a giveaway as per the original plan, drawing one winner from the remaining comments.
I chose one winner at random from the remaining comments, using random.org.
The winner is Loretta Shumpert!
Congrats Loretta, send me your address and I’ll get that to Christy (ewesner[at]gmail[dot]com).
