ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY EXTRAVAGANZA WINNERS

Hi everyone and a very happy Monday to you all. Today is the day when we pick the names of three hardworking blog readers from the hat (well, the random number generator) and make them very happy, with any luck.

Before we get to that, though - a Blog Tour update.

Saturday's post is about my most influential writers, and is on the Undercover Blog.

Sunday's post reveals the soundtrack of Shadows on the Moon and is at the lovely Emma's Book Angel's Booktopia.

Today's post will be on Writing From the Tub (I think it's going to be another sneak preview of the book - there might be a giveaway too).

And don't forget to check out Tuesday's at Sarah's Feeling Fictional.

In other news, the Shadows on the Moon ebook is now available for pre-order and it's only £2.49. That's nearly 500 pages for under three quid!

All right, onto the part which I know you're all really here for:

The first winner, who will receive the grand prize of an ARC of Shadows on the Moon, signed and personalised for them, a sparkly UK paperback of The Swan Kingdom, a gorgeous US hardcover of Daughter of the Flames, both also signed and personalised, and a one of a kind piece of artwork created by my own fair hand during the process of writing Shadows on the Moon is...


*Drumroll*

...


Rebecca Lindsay! 

Which, given how many times Rebecca and her family entered, was probably inevitable. You really worked hard for this Rebecca - well done.

Now, the winner of the second prize, which is an ARC of Shadows on the Moon, a one of a kind piece of artwork from my Shadows on the Moon sketches, and a bag of swag, including signed bookplates, magnets and postcards is...


*Trumpet fanfare*

...

Isabel!

And again, I can't say I'm all that surprised, as I think Isabel entered nearly as many times as Rebecca. You were determined to win this one, Isabel, and you've never won anything from the blog before, which I know has been disappointing in the past. I'm really, really pleased for you. Congratulations! 

Finally, the runner up, who will get a one of a kind piece of artwork and a bag of swag, including signed bookplates, magnets, postcards, fans, and anything else I have on hand, is... 


*Heavenly chorus of angels*

...

Scattered Laura!  

Congratulations, Laura - I hope you'll be happy with your prize!  

I'd like all the winners to get in touch with me via my email (zdmarriott at g mail dot com) as soon as possible to give me their postal addresses. I'm going to try to get all these prizes in the post by Friday of this week so that you get them pronto. 

Congratulations again to all the winners. Commiserations to those of you who didn't win. I'm sure you're feeling a little depressed right now, but there will be other giveaways and maybe you'll be lucky another time.

See you all on Wednesday!

Wow well done everyone, lucky Isabel! (she probably said that she's away in South Africa right now, right?)

Happy release day Zoe! Can't wait for my copy to drop through the door! :D

Book Angel Emma said...

So glad Rebecca won - she really deserved to :D
Thank you so much for your brilliant post yesterday *hugs*

Zoë Marriott said...

Alex: Oh, that's right, she is! Oh, well - I'll just have to wait until she gets back to post her prize out to her. I'm crossing my fingers for you to win something next time. I think you're the only core reader who hasn't now. Poor Alex!

Emma: I know, she worked incredibly hard. I hope she'll think it was worth all that effort.

A.J. Mullarky said...

Hehe actually Zoe I won a contest about a year ago! I won a signed copy of the Swan Kingdom and some bookplates as well as a couple of lovely extra books, so really I am a lucky duck who's just greedy for more :)

Zoë Marriott said...

Oh, that's right! I remember now. Huh - I do a lot of giveaways, don't I? They all sort of blur together in my head...

Rebecca Lindsay said...

Thank you Book Angel Emma :) This is the first time I've won a book competition or any competition online so I'm so happy! Thank you so much for the oppertunity Zoe :)

Congratulations to all winners! You worked really hard. And I really like *Heavenly chorus of angels*. I'm still smiling. :) But last year was also good "Where the heck is my drumroll". lol

Shelby said...

Congrats winners!

Megha said...

OMG ISABEL WON WOOHOO YOU CANNOT IMAGINE HOW HAPPY I AM!!!! =D

She's the person I wanted to win even more than I wanted to win myself!

Zoe, good news! I got a Kindle (EEEEEEP!) and now I can get SotM on the Kindle instead of buying it, which is even better!

CONGRATS! SOTM IS FINALLY PUBLISHED!! =D

Zoë Marriott said...

Megha: LOL - You do still have to buy it to read it on your Kindle, Megha. But yes, it's a bit quicker than waiting for it to arrive in the post.

Breezy said...

Congrats winners, I wish I could've won this, but no luck :( maybe next time! I love Zoe Marriott's books and I'll try to get Shadows on the Moon.

scattered_laura said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I won some STUFF! *Happy dance. Happy dance. Happy dance.*

Thank you! I've emailed you my addy!

You rock the kazbah! =D

Isabel said...

Zoe:

OH MY GOSH. I actually burst into tears and started frantically hugging my sister the moment I saw that I had won. I'm still quite shivery and ecstatic! (I dreamed about this giveaway while I was away, I was so obsessed. I can't even begin to tell you how exciting this is for me and my sister.) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SOO MUCH! And congrats to the other to winners -- Alex and Megha, thanks for being so kind! I apologize for the delay and will send you my address as soon as possible! I'll see you all again in a day or two. You just made the entire wait completely worth it!!!!!

:D:D:D:D

Zoë Marriott said...

Isabel: I had a feeling you would be excited :) Don't panic - I'll happily wait until you can get the address to me. Your prize is all safely packaged up and waiting.

Isabel said...

*squees*

I already sent you my address, thanks for waiting! (Although I accidentally sent it under the subject "my email address" you should have received it by now LOL.) I absolutely can't WAIT to receive my prize!!!

I just read DIVERGENT and I have to say, one of the best books I've ever read. Thanks for the recommendation!!! Also I read THE HUNGER GAMES and adored it (a little less ;))... you should definitely read it. I thought of you a lot while I did. I promise it would be worth a read!

Also, I'm going to read all the blog posts I missed out on when I get back. I'm super excited to check out that trailer! You just gave me the best birthday present I've ever gotten. ;)

Rebecca Lindsay said...

I'm really happy that you won too Isabel :) If I didn't win it I was really hoping you would! I knew how excited you were! Well done to both of us and scattered Laura :) *happy dance* lol

Thanks for the great competition Zoe :)
