Not this kind of “feeling lucky.”
It’s time to announce the giveaways from my book tour, and I’m so excited! When I was first planning the tour, I was really looking forward to connecting with blog readers via the comments section, and wanted to give out some freebies to say thank you! And you guys did not disappoint: it’s been so much fun chatting with you all.
I’m also grateful to the fab writers and bloggers who acted as hosts along the way: Susan Spann, Elizabeth Craig, Nancy Lauzon, Margot Kinberg, Bayard and Holmes, Julie Glover, Jess Witkins, Jill Kemerer, Tiffany White, Misterio Press, and Jenny Hansen. Thank you! You all rock!
Last week, when the last post had been released, I realized it was time to figure out how to randomly give away the prizes. Hmm. What’s the best way to do that? I got to thinking about all of the board gaming I’ve done over the decades, and the variety of randomizing tactics they use.
So I dug deep from my own experiences. The spinner from The Game of Life, or maybe Candyland? (Told ya I dug deep, LOL). Or perhaps a roll of the dice, the time-honored tactic of countless games?
A shuffle of the cards? A flip of the coin?
Should I visit Vegas for inspiration, and take a turn at the roulette wheel? (Great excuse for a road trip!) How about the dart board at our local pub?
Maybe I should have y’all over for a game of bingo:
But if we’re doing that, I’d rather we play a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock. Let’s see…Spock refutes paper; lizard poisons Spock…
Sigh. I couldn’t decide. It looked like I needed some expert help.
Hello, Random.org! Not nearly as interesting, but it beats throwing a medicine ball in the air:
I get sore just looking at that.
Okay, so now I’m ready! I’ve kept you folks waiting long enough.

You know you really ought to see someone about that decision-making problem, Kathy. 😉
LOL, Kass – I like to explore all the options. Also known as “dithering.” 😉
How fun is this post. And Cate rocks!! (She’s in Australia, so she’ll need an e-copy.) I’m so excited you had a great book tour and I was delighted to be a part of it.
That Crossfit video made me laugh my ass off. There’s nothing like a good session with medicine balls to make that particular body part KILL.
Wow, I can believe it, Jenny! When I saw that ball just PLOP there and NOT MOVE, I knew that had to be a heavy sucker.
Glad to learn such a cool Aussie has been following the tour! Definitely an ebook. I just tweeted her.
Awesome! Thank you, Kathy! I enjoyed reading the posts along the blog tour. I wish you much success! 🙂
You bet, Rhonda – congrats! Thanks so much for following the tour. Let me know what file format you want, and your email address. You can either message me on Facebook, or email me: contact (at) kbowenmysteries (dot) com. 😀
What? I’m a winner? Holy Schmoly, that’s cool. I sent you an e-mail and am anxiously awaiting my prize. I can’t wait to see what Concordia’s got up her sleeve this time.

Yep, and I got your email, but I need to know what format you want the ebook in: pdf, mobi, or epub. Congrats, and thanks for the fab support! 🙂
It is my pleasure to be a supporter, Kathy. My hope is that we can one day meet and share a hug.
So was bragging to Cathy about being a Grand Prize Winner and then returned to the blog after dinner to continue reading it. Imagine my chagrin when I found out that I won based not on my sleuthing and deductive skills but on pure LUCK! I owe it all to random.org (at least it wasn’t the Candyland spinner.
Aww…well, at least you can console yourself over a cup of coffee in your new mug! 😉
Aw, shucks, I didn’t win. 🙁 Guess I’m headed over to Amazon to get it for my Kindle now, tho, so I’ll be a happy camper tonight!
And my favorite would be using Bingo balls to choose!
Aw, Jen – thanks so much! You made my day. 😉 Bingo balls, huh? Wish I could have y’all over!
Look at all those names. Wow, now that’s exciting news! Love your process of elimination Kathy. I was right there with you on that. You know I think that you’re a genius, right? Well done. And it sounds like you had a wonderful launch. I am so happy for you! Yay!!!!!! 🙂
Karen, you’re the best peep a gal could have – thanks for all of your fab support! 😀
What?! I won? Hey, some luck did come my way! Yay! Thanks Kathy! It’s been fun following your blog tour.
Thanks so much for following the tour, Kelly! What format file do you want your ebook? It’s available as pdf, mobi, and epub.
