Hi, everyone! To celebrate the release of book 3 of the Concordia Wells Mysteries, Unseemly Ambition, I’ve been hosting a random giveaway that ended January 31st. Here’s a refresher:


The prizes:

Ebooks, paperbacks, candy tins, and audiobooks, along with the opportunity to collaborate with me on a name/physical trait for two characters  in book #4, tentative titled Unseemly Haste. A total of twelve winners are selected.

Many thanks to those who entered!

A big “thank you” to all of the blog and newsletter subscribers, blog post commenters, book reviewers linking back in the comments, and readers submitting photos during the contest period of Oct 14, 2014 to Jan 31, 2015. It’s been so much fun to share this with you.

The selection process:

Each entry was assigned a unique number, and these numbers were entered into Random.org to generate the twelve winning entrants.

So, how did I decide which winner got which prize? At first, I thought it would be cute to have our new cat, Tora, be part of the selection process.

But it was quickly evident that I needed a plan B:

Tora, you’re supposed to be my kitty Muse! You’re falling down on the job. Sigh.

Plan B: Nerf gun and a white board.

Take a look:

Thanks to our youngest, for filming and editing the video. I never looked so good. And thanks to our son Liam, Nerf-gun-wielder-extraordinaire.

In case the video didn’t play, here’s the winner list. I’ll be contacting y’all by email. Congrats!

Has a Nerf gun ever helped you make a selection? I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time,


P.S. – Didn’t win, but would like a signed bookmark? If you have a U.S. or Canadian mailing address, send it to: contact@kbowenmysteries.com and I’ll mail you one!
