And the ARC Goes To...

Hey everybody...iiiiittttt'sssss TIME! Time to announce the winners of the "Alien in the Family" ARC Giveaway contest.

I've debated how to share, and since we're in the thick of awards season and the Oscars are this weekend, we're going to do it how they do, and torture everyone, I mean, announce the smaller prizes first. Even though they were picked last.

NOTE: All winners will need to send me an email with their mailing address, confirming that they saw and want their prize, by Friday, March 4th. If I don't have that email, you don't get your prize, and it will be reassigned to someone else by the Gods of Random.

The Gods of Random, btw, had a field day with this particular contest. They're as anxious as you are to announce who won what. So, without (too much) further ado...I give you...

The Guest List Prize Winners
Winner of Prize 1: Dragon, aka Matt Payne
Winner of Prize 2: Joanna, aka Beckerjo
Winner of Prize 3: Julie Jones, aka My 5 Monkeys (Julie)
Winner of Prize 4: Brandy Jones
Winner of Prize 5: Gayle Toney
Winner of Prize 6: Becky Boyer
Winner of EXTRA PRIZE 7: Jennifer Cauley
Winner of EXTRA PRIZE 8: Adrienne Trent, aka Dren

Once I hear from you, you'll get an email from me with a listing of available prizes for you to choose from. I've added some on, so there's lots of cool stuff, even for those of you who *coughMattandBeckyandJuliecough* win all the time.

On to the subjective prize, aka the hardest damn one to pick...

The Majordormo Prize Winner

This was a tough one to call, because the trash talking was particularly fierce and hilarious. But in the end, it came down to a post that continuously made me snort water through my nose. So, the Majordomo goes to:
Stephanie and her God, the Great Zanthor (Stephanie and Zanthor can figure out who gets what out of the prize pack)

And now, what you've ALL been waiting for...well, at least those of you whose names weren't already called and who are, therefore, now, sitting clutching your prizes and trying to pretend that you're happy, HAPPY DO YOU HEAR ME? HAPPY that someone else is going to win the big prize...I give you...

The Bridal Party Pack Winners

*drum roll, please*

*hey, we HAVE to draw it out, it's in the Union Rules*

*another drum roll, with a special flourish on the end*

Pack 1 Winner: Rich Atkinson
Pack 2 Winner: Mahira Wadsworth, aka nightsongfire
Pack 3 Winner: Tammy Schroeder

Congrats to ALL the winners, and remember -- all winners will need to send me an email with their mailing address, confirming that they saw and want their prize, by Friday, March 4th. If I don't have that email, you don't get your prize, and it will be reassigned to someone else by the Gods of Random.

Thanks to everyone for playing. You all rocked it, and if I could have given out more ARCs and more prizes, I would have. But, hey, that's what the next contests are for, right?

For those of you with blogs who didn't win the most coveted, hit the Win Stuff page -- there's still a few days to get in on the Worth Your Weight contest, that also contains an "Alien in the Family" ARC as a prize.

So, winners, congratulations! Losers, hang in there, babes, there will ALWAYS be another contest coming. Readers, love you all, have a wonderful weekend, and catch you next week, when, shockingly, there will be more going on! Until then, peace out, li'l gangstas!

Love
Gini
