***Update: Winners of the day 2 giveaway are now displayed. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and see if the rafflecopter picked you :) If you're a winner, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll need your full name and mailing address.
Each night, when I'm setting up the rafflecopter for the new giveaway, I read through all the comments one more time. You outdid yourselves with yesterday's comments about your favorite scene from On the Island.
They made me cry.
Not giant ugly tears like I cried when I wrote some of those scenes. But grateful oh my God, how did this even happen? kind of tears. Once again, words cannot express how much your comments mean to me. Thank you so much.
It's been over two years since I started writing On the Island, and over a year since I finished it. In some ways I've moved on. I'm almost done with my second book and I'm immersed in a new story, with new characters. But reading all of your comments has brought back wonderful memories of those scenes. I remember how I struggled to write some of your favorites. How I re-wrote some of them three different ways before finally deciding which version I liked best. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with me.
Now for day 3 of the giveaway! Two wonderful readers will win a Nook Color. As long as I can ship it to you (via the Barnes & Noble website), you are eligible.
In the comment section, tell me who your favorite secondary character is. I'd love to know if there were other characters you connected with. Also, who would you most like to see in a spin-off story? Here are some of the choices:
I'm having a teeny-tiny bit of difficulty with the rafflecopter for yesterday's giveaway. It's chosen the winners but it won't display them. I'm working on it and as soon as I figure it out, I'll post the names. There are still 7 of you who need to e-mail me your full name and mailing address from Friday's day 1 giveaway (so send me your info at email@example.com).
After you leave a comment, make sure you also login to the rafflecopter using your Facebook login or your e-mail address so that you'll be eligible to win today's prize.
Happy Monday, everyone!
