Project Give a Book, Give the World Redux (and Winner Announced!)

Sorry I’m just now posting the winner of the Project Give a Book, Give the World, but life got crazy there for awhile. In fact, it still is. (I can’t wait until I have time to return to the blogging world!)

And the winner is… Susan Kaye Quinn! Congratulations, Sue! Send me your snail mail address and expect a package next week. (Also, please note that Amy Allgeyer Cook offered a signed book plate for The Iron Bodkin. Awesome, eh? If you want it, please let us know.)

Really, though, you are all winners. Thank you so much for participating and thank you even more for giving children books this holiday season. We had a total of 127 books given away. That means I have 127 school humanitarian aid kits to make in 2011. (I know, I had better get busy!)

My heart is full of gratitude to everyone that helped make that number possible. Most especially I’m grateful to my wonderful friend, Sharon Mayhew, who amid the holiday rush managed to get a box of school supplies together (and money for more!) to send to me. She is a treasure! (Susan Fields too, who is sending a package of supplies as well. I have the best critique partners EVER!)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! God bless you all this coming New Year!

  1. We have a million pencils floating around this house - all brand spanking new. They hide in weird places - under the couch and beds, in toy boxes and on book shelves. In odd cupboards and drawers. If I ever manage to round them up, you'll have a lifetime supply!
