I got this package in the mail today and it had books and bookmarks in it and at first I couldn't figure out who had sent them to me.  Then I looked at the return address and it was the same name as the author!  Turns out I had won a contest I entered at Author Island and this was my prize.

Julianne MacLean is the author and I received 3 books and several bookmarks.

Lucky you, I never win anything , I have never heard of that author(that is not saying much since I don't know a lot of the authors around here).

Yay for you!  I've entered a number of book contests but no such luck for me yet.  Maybe one day!

Awesome!!! I won a contest once off a yahoo western lover's reading group discussion board. I had never read the author before or even heard of her. Only the book wasn't in paperback form, she sent it to me in an email as a PDF file. Well i don't like reading books online, and i'm not going to waste all that ink printing it off. Sadly i have never read the book and it looks like a good one. I did also receive a $10 gift card to Starbucks, now that was awesome!
