To be blunt, I was a little surprised at how few people entered my draw for free books or a candle. It’s not that the post didn’t get hits. I suspect I made it too difficult to enter by a). Making it a two-step process b). Asking something of others that makes them uncomfortable.
If it’s the latter, I’m now very curious about why that would be. I only have to open any news website, Twitter, FaceBook to see someone sounding off about another person who annoys them. Heck, that’s even been me a time or two hundred. Why, as a society, are we so uncomfortable with showing gratitude? I’d really love your thoughts on this.
Nevertheless, despite a difficult challenge, eight brave souls stuck their necks out and went through the exercise, some even pre-emptively. Thank you, both for being the kind of people who inhabit my world and for making another writer’s day a little brighter.
Without further ado, the three winners, as drawn by RNG, are as follows:
Will you please contact me with the prize of your choice and address so I can get them off to you ASAP? Just hit the envelope icon to the right and it’ll take you to the form. Congratulations!
Now, a video which made me actually chortle. The best part’s towards the end. 😀 Enjoy.
