We have a winner! (Contest update)

I’ll be stepping away from our regularly scheduled “How I do it!’ feature this morning to provide you with this update. “How I do it” will return next Wednesday.

As was proposed back in November, View from Valhalla ran a contest coinciding with the release of our 26th weekly Podcast Review. A name was selected at random on Twitter on Friday, May 15, 2010. The honor (guilt, culpability, blame, etc) of drawing the name went to our good friend and regular commenter  Richared Green (aka Mainframe) who had asked to be excluded from the drawing himself.

After the drumroll ended, Richard provided us with the number matching that of DanDanTheArtMan, who is a right nice guy, fan of podiofiction and has posted here regularly.

As his prize, Dan selected the wonderfully funny and charming Christiana Ellis’s Nina Kimberly the Merciless. Ms. Ellis was kind enough to agree to allow us to purchase directly from her, and send send an autographed copy to Dan.

I would seriously like to thank all of you who have commented. I know it wasn’t for hopes of winning a book (well, I don’t know, and if it was, you are motivated, well and true) but I hope you had fun with the contest anyway.

I hope to be able to continue to run this contest 2 times yearly, so don’t forget, keep those comments coming! And yes, disagreeing with me counts JUST AS MUCH as agreeing. See you after Podcast Review 52!

Original contest rules can be found here.

  • Congratulations Dan! Great Prize! Good job @Mainframe!

  • For the record, I didn’t even know about the contest, and left comments because anyone who promotes podiobooks is a friend of mine, and you do a great job of reviewing them. Thanks again, I just got P.G.Holyfield’s Murder At Avedon Hill and a signed copy of Nathan Lowell’s Quarter Share, and now this! It’s turning out to be an awesome spring! Thanks again!

      It’s been a great year for our podcasting community. Some pain as well, but I am hoping that the coming year brings more of our favorite author’s to print and am excited to see it happen.

      I had a feeling you were unaware of the contest, but that just made it better. Thanks for playing, and keep the comments coming!
