It's finally time to announce the winners from the giveaways hosted during the month of July as a part of the 2011 Declare Your Independence Indie Author Giveaway Carnival! All honor and glory must, of course, go to the awesome authors and publishers who sponsored the giveaways and their generosity! Because so many folks offered up great prize packs, open season giveaways, and multiple copies, a grand total of 94 books (print and digital) plus one pair of earrings were given away! Overall, 1142 entries were submitted for 26 giveaways! I'm officially declaring the first Indie Author Giveaway Carnival a huge success. Thanks again to everyone who participated!
With that said, the next project is to get all the prizes to the winners! In order to make the process as seamless as possible, the following rules are in place, in accordance with my Giveaway Policy:
-I will be using random.org to select the winners for each giveaway. Because the selection is random, people can win more than one prize.
-All winners will be emailed to notify them of their prize! Specific instructions for claiming the prize will be included in the email (identify what digital format you want, send me your mailing address, etc.) Please make sure you follow the instructions so that delivery of your prize is not delayed.
-All winners will have 48 hours from the time of the notification email to follow the instructions to claim their prize(s). At the end of that window, if a prize has not been claimed then a new winner will be drawn.
-Any questions or concerns can be directed to me via the contact buttons to the right.
All right, enough rules, on to the winners!
